Well, congratulations. If you’re reading this you survived the festive period, and who knows – in few months it might even start getting warmer and you can say you survived winter too! So that’s good.
Here’s my cute new felt covered diary and a sneak peek at a scarf I’m currently working on. It’s an awesomely textured no purl rib pattern and I’m knitting it holding two strands of DK yarn together for extra squidge factor.
I cast on just 31 stitches which I’ve found to be plenty wide enough and I’m using 4.5mm circs. Circs forever! It’ll be for my mum if I don’t curl up in it and hibernate before it makes it out of my clutches.
Christmas was a success because I got new yarn. As I live in England and it’s New Year’s Day (I stayed up wayyy past my bedtime) I wasn’t awake for enough daylight to take good pictures of it. Luckily for you I have a horribly bright fluorescent kitchen light which is very unflattering but great for taking knitting photos after dusk.
That King Cole Glitz is utterly fabulous and is likely to become a sparkly beret. That Cascade yarn is Peruvian wool from my sister, she knows the way to my heart ❤
