Hope you enjoyed the last couple of days as much as I did. Christmas and I don't agree with each other too well. So I stay at home with my knitting and the TV and some good books. Just whats needed after a busy and changeable year.
So wracking brains about what to do for new baby niece Eloise - I recalled a big pile of granny squares my mother made for me years ago - that I intended to make into a big throw - but we ran out of yarn - Lightweight DK by Rowan - now no more - so they've sat around - as I didn't know what to do with them.
So this is what I did. Took 16 - crocheted together and then put the icing round the edge. I know that she will be inundated with new clothes and toys - so I did this for her - and am hoping that it will become her favourite - no pressure from Aunty Sue then gggg....
Then the other major achievement - I finished Beth's Moon. It was supposed to be made for her 4th birthday - I did bits here and there - but couldn't seem to get it finished. Well I just sat down with the beads and sequins yesterday and finished it. She will be 8 in February!!!
I know she will love it - she has seen it from time to time and I know she has a space for it in the newly decorated bedroom the girls will be sharing. Shes told me about that space frequently lately - a very polite child - not to just say 'Aunty Sue - FINISH IT!!!'
I have completed the inner square for my hap shawl - and am thinking about - note thinking... starting to pick up all the stitches around the edge to start the fun bit.
Well that's about it - looking forward to tomorrow - will see the kids etc and give them their pressies. Then Beth and I will troop off to Liberty for the Knitting evening (she hasn't been for a while and loves it so - seeing some of our knitting chums) and then on Friday we have a date to go and see Happy Feet at the cinema. Then the weekend spent writing my CV. I'm looking forward to 2007 - the last few years have not been great and 2007 I intend to make some long overdue changes.
HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all.
