The Hulk

I'm not doing too well on the old blogging recently am I? Just a short post today. I had some bad news about Monty on Friday, so the weekend has been a bit tough. James has been away too, but I've seen my girls, my sister and my mum. I'll not go into Monty's problems too much, but basically the bone condition that he was diagnosed with two years ago has taken a dramatic turn for the worst. He's OK, and comfortable, but may go down hill quite quickly. But then again he may not. But I can't ride him again. My Vet, Tom, was fantastic, really sympathetic, and spent ages talking me through everything. Funny, I've had two training sessions recently, that were possibly some of the best rides I've ever had with him and they may have been the last. Something conspired to give us a few great last rides, after a couple of years of just mooching about.
Anyway, this blog is about knitting. I've got great knitting news, I'm waiting for light to photograph it..... watch this space. I have photos of todays completed project, some PJs for my sister's birthday. Well, kind of a birthday present (she got some perfume too!) and sort of a sorry. Last time I stayed with her I borrowed some pjyamas and strangely I woke up having ripped them all the way down one leg. Bizarre. She suggested I had a 'Hulk' moment in my sleep!

I'm sorry about Monty. But you have great memories together. And those last few training rides went well. So you can remember the good more than the tough times.

Wow, Other Nell, you took the words right out of my mouth. Give Monty a pat on the nose for me (do horses like that? something along those lines, anyway)

Great PJs!

I'm really sorry to hear about Monty, Nell, ditto to the comments above!

Loving the PJ material though, and a little concerned about your hulk moment :)

I managed to rip my favourite PJs once - right down the side too, but I have to admit I was in a very giddy mood, and was trying to jump into them, rather than put them on like a normal person. :)Lesson learned. RIP toastie jammies...

Sorry to hear about Monty - give him a pat and a sugar lump (if he is allowed to have them - or should it be a polo??)
Love the PJs that fabric is lovely, and the finishing is very impressive. She is very lucky, certainly worth a HULK moment :-)

So sorry about Monty. I hope he has a restful retirement.

I am so sorry about Monty! I'll be thinking of him.

The pj's are gorgeous- your sister is one lucky chica!
