So that’s Christmas done and dusted! Hope everyone had a fabulous time and ate and drank until they burst!!
Now onto 2014…..
I am going to submit another pattern idea, which needs to be in by January 9th. At the moment it is just in my head but I have got some Drops Safran to use for my swatching. If the pattern was chosen it would be published i the summer so I have chosen some lovely fruity colours, in raspberry, peach and yellow….
I just hope I am able to knit it. I have been diagnosed as having Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and my hands get pins and needles. I was having some physic to see if it would alleviate it a bit but after an initial improvement it has now gone worse again. So I am being referred for some nerve conduction tests.
So after I finished a cowl for my dog walking friend Nina…….,
I decided to take a self imposed break from the knitting. I bought another card making magazine yesterday which came with a vintage lady stamp and some art deco type papers, so this morning I made a couple of birthday cards for friends.
I still have a lot of card making stuff left over from a few years back so I was able to fish out the purple hearts and the silver card and embellishments.
I shall also be catching up on my reading, as I now have a Kindle Paperwhite which is very light on my poor hands. I am currently reading Life After Life by Kate Atkinson, and to be honest I’m finding it a bit of a slog.
And just maybe, I will start that podcast……
So what are your New Year crafting (or other) plans? Will you be trying anything new this year?
