HAPPY NEW YEAR

The year is drawing to a close and has been a busy one. . . time for one last blog post of 2014. A low key New Year’s Eve feels pretty perfect!

I will see you on the other side. 2015 is going to be a positive and healthy year!

I have had this yarn a while and considering I love the colour pink I cannot believe how long the yarn has sat hibernating – no more.

I have also finished the neck of Haven and yes it goes over my head. Sew the sides up and put the sleeves in is next up – tomorrow hopefully or shall I save it for New Years Eve sewing up party.

Happy knitting.

Fifth day of Christmas

My goal was reached a few days – early.

Ok so they need grafting – tomorrow. But I am more or less a clean sheet for the socks! No sock WIPS! So I can choose a pair to cast on New Years Day – a surprise for you at a later date.

Haven is nearly there as well. I think I am going to like this jumper muchly. I wanted to knit the neck in the round but didn’t have a 4mm circular in a short length …then… “you have some interchangeables – use them” so that is what I did. Magic – this neck is fun to knit – 9cm of moss stitch and then another 9cm of rib – I am currently on 7cm of rib – tiny bit to go and then it is the “sewing up party”.

Maybe a New Years Day jumper!

Monday tomorrow – sixth day of Christmas.

Fourth day of Christmas

Cold today but at least we don’t have snow. We were able to go for a lovely walk before lunch – perfect walking weather.

Then after lunch a trip to Yarnfest – a few miles down the road from home. I had a £10 voucher to spend by 6th January – no yarn which inspired me so I bought some accessories!

Some positive progress with knitting thereafter – pop back tomorrow.

Christmas Sunday

Knitting is back in fashion – read it in the paper.  Great article in the Daily Mail. So true rather knit a pair of socks than twerk like Miley Cyrus.

Proof!
