Happy New Year or Bliadhna Mhath Ur (in Gaelic if you prefer!). Apologies for not being able to wish my blog readers a Merry Christmas but my laptop (or it's battery) decided to keel over and die just a couple of weeks before the festive season - Oh Dear! Never mind - I hope everyone had a lovely festive season :)
We had a lovely, lazy, time although eldest son was stuck on the mainland due to bad weather for a few days, the joys and perils of living on an island - but he got home eventually after a rather adventurous journey! Hence our Christmas was spread over a few days - a good excuse for enjoying a second Christmas dinner, hehe!
I treated myself to a new knitty book for some relaxing 'chill out' time over the holiday break. Once I'd got the yarn and the needles I was chomping at the bit to get started. I'm now experimenting with two projects at the same time - well, January can be a bit of boring month, so . . .
. . . I'm getting well stuck in!
I've never really been a big fan of knitting scarves - but I'm enjoying practicing some new techniques - bobbles, cables, lace, twisted stitches - I'm on a learning curve - which is the general idea :) Both of these scarves are supposed to measure 165 cm long when complete - not sure that they'll ever reach that length! Perhaps next year's Chrsitmas pressies????
All the best for 2014 - may it be a productive, creative, adventurous - or whichever you hope for, year!
