First, a picture of me, showing off my new SHAWL (made to order for me by [personal profile] killing_rose / RavenYarnworks - it is the cookie monster shawl on the Etsy page, only with different yarn):

Some closeups of the knitting (click through for bigger photos if you are keen on this kind of thing):

And finally, two lovely photos from my dad's visit on Saturday. The children were persuaded to pose together to update the background photo on my dad's tablet from one of Charles holding a baby Nico:

Happy siblings posing together

My dad spent some time helping Nico paint, to both their apparent satisfaction:

Charles was also kind enough to supply me with a new icon. I seem to be quite good at provoking his facepalm lately; we are clearly reaching "MUM, you're so EMBARRASSING" territory.

That is a most excellent shawl! Looks really snuggly. I really like the shirt you are wearing underneath it, too.

The shirt is from La Redoute, like a lot of my clothes. (They sell clothes that fit me, and I much prefer trying on at home than traipsing round the high street for the tiny fraction of things that might fit, let alone suit).

It's nominally a dress, but I tend to think of it as a long shirt with a couple of convenient pockets.

Just checked them out, and instantly found a cardigan I really liked! Thanks for the tip. :-)
