I have decided that as much as I love Christmas, I am not going to celebrate this year. I just pray that when New Year comes, the cloud will have left and I can start being my normal self.
In the meantime, I have spent most evenings watching knitting podcasts and obviously, knitting. I started a project a few days ago called 'Capucine' on ravelry.com and I got my Mirasol Api yarn out to give it a try. It's so soft and squishy and am really glad I carried on with it. Here is a photo of it....
It fit's really nice and cover's my ears which is what I wanted it to do. I have already started another project last night called 'Dragonflies' Hat and I am using the Rowan Creative Linen in a gorgeous green colour. I will post a picture of it's progress here ..
The pattern does involve some lace which I am a little concerned over how I am going to manage with it. I will certainly give it a go because I just love the hat design. I can just see me wearing it with my green waterproof coat when the really bad weather comes.
The progress on my Ross 365 blanket is going very slowly. I try to do a couple of rows a day and am on my 16th row. I won't be able to take it to work with me now because it is rather awkward and cumbersome to carry various balls of yarn with me. That's one of the reasons I started the Dragonflies Hat because at least it will fit in my bag. I also intend to make a start on some more toys soon and am just deciding whether to knit them or crochet them.
Oh well, I'm off now to try and keep busy. I might have a go at making some cake's today but will see how the day pan's out. Have a good week everyone and I will leave you with a photo of my baby girl who I adore...xxx
