Hello New Year.....


Have you had a good start to the New Year? 

Before we know it we're already heading towards the end of January..can you believe it?

It's been extremely cold and wintry in our corner and I've mostly been keeping busy 
with my knitting needles, crochet hooks and lovely yarns.

As I went on my recent trip without taking anything to keep my hands warm (it snowed!) 
it gave me the idea to make quite a few pairs of mittens through the year in quiet time. 
I'm enjoying knitting MÄ«lēt at the moment by Ysolda and well on with 
the second mitten now. The pattern is beautiful and the yarn, which I haven't used before, 
is really lovely to work with too (purchased as a kit on Ysolda's website) 

I'm using my Knitpro Zing dpns which I initially purchased some time ago
and really appreciating the colour coded needles which make life easier in 
so many ways... just perfectly practical x

A  few more pinafores and cardigans are being knitted so that there will be
 lots of ideas for everyone when I release the pattern 
(and for those who have asked, the pattern will be available very soon!)

(the Little White Rabbit from my craftroom Xmas tree)

I've decided one of my resolutions is to work only on personal projects at the weekend and
concentrate on work projects on week days and so as well as mittens, I've also started a new 
crochet project which I can show you next time...variety is the spice of life, right? 🙂

..and just one last thing before I go..

Cases are packed....

Cold, grey wintry days
...lots of knitting, fairy lights and tea...
...yarn testing...dress fittings...pattern writing...
...working on translations...and crochet in the evenings...


In fact, my latest crochet project has been really enjoyable 
and I'll be taking some photos when we return from our trip next week 
(and when our northern light permits!)

❄️ ❄️ ❄️

I'm also planning to make the workroom festive today
...we've picked a pretty tree and she's waiting patiently for her decorations...
Hopefully, I'm going to avoid feeling like the white rabbit this Xmas...
...too often the way for me no matter how hard I try to avoid it...
(and yet I have all year to prepare?!) x


On that note, I now actually have my very own little white rabbit too
 in the form of a tree decoration...hurrying with his clock...he's lovely... 
and I'll introduce him to you next time when he's found his place on the tree x

❄️ ❄️ ❄️

I'm definitely ready for some festive sparkle
and we're off to my most favourite place next week...
the Lake District...along with a suitcase of yarn...candles...
and books (plus some pampering treats...oh yeah!)
...not much room for clothes...just the important stuff...mostly yarn...
...a retreat right by the lakeside for a whole week...
and time for some Christmas shopping...Miss Daisy is coming too of course
...she has her dog treats already packed...most important x


Hope you're having a good weekend everyone
It's been so dark in our corner of the world 
and the days just seem far too short right now

Thank you for calling by
...for ever kind comments and friendship...

We're so lucky to be part of this colourful 
Creative Universe, aren't we? x

x Back soon x


P.S  I hope you see a bee...a rabbit... and a happy little dog up there?
