Wow, where have the weeks gone since July? It is properly cold here now and Small Girl and I are keeping warm in the various hats, cowls and gloves that would never have been created if I hadn’t signed up to Year Of Projects. Thank you Keri!
Not a huge amount of progress this week – Small Girl was ill with a cold and now I have it too. But Babette is still happily growing, and I am doing the ends and joining for the second third of Section 9. Every so often I still get a colour combination that delights me with its vivacity – such a welcome treat in December! It was lovely to read all your comments last week and to realise that Babette is cherished outside of this house too. Small Girl is starting to ask “Are you finished my new blanket yet, Mummy?” Sorry sweets, this one’s for me. Who am I kidding…
Most definitely for me, however, will be this beautiful Million Stripes cowl, which I found on ProjectStashEL’s Likes page when
stalking reviewing my Rav friends’ activity. There are no words for how much I love Ravelry, I’m sure it’s not healthy. But I don’t care. That cowl is adorable, presents some timely learning opportunities, and I believe I have a yarn in mind for it. I can’t think of a more perfect January project, so it shall be added to the list, yarn procured forthwith, and started after Christmas. Thank you, Evelyn!
Hopefully I’ll be back in a few days with some photos of Babette and new yarn. There won’t be an update here on Christmas Day, but I’m sure I’ll manage one soon after. Happy Christmas to everyone who reads here, and your families and loved ones x
