I'm at that glorious and exciting stage of *almost* having a new finished object to show off.  This one is even more exciting for me than usual.  It's not perfect by any means, but it is the first crochet project I ever started, in May 2011, when we moved into our new home.  I am working away hard at it, and hoping there is some good light to show it off when I finish it.  I have less than 2 (very big) rounds to go.

There is something oh so satisfying in edging a blanket, and I'm really enjoying it (especially as its cold, and a perfect time of year to be working under a lovely snuggly blanket)

Would you like to see some sneaky in progress shots?

I shall be along very shortly for the reveal....

Wow, it's been a while - I have so much to share. This year I'm focusing on finishing things.  I made a lot of lovely (I think!) things for Christmas, and now I'm working on loose ends....

These are my first ever completed socks.  Aran weight and snuggly warm, made from gorgeous www.astashaddict.co.uk yarn. I love Danielle's work, and have quite a bit of her yarn in my stash.  Hopefully I will be showing more of it soon.

Kwoosh! I love this, its huge and toasty warm and oh so simple, a perfect switch off knit. King Cole Riot dk yarn, one ball made a scarf too big to fit in shot easily.  

A few Christmas gifts....


Oh and I FINALLY finished my Hitchhiker - I absolutely love it, but I'm really not sure I'd do it again

I'm going to work on keeping this up to date from now on, and may even have a few patterns of my own to add, hopefully.  This year I'm aiming to make some clothing for me as well as the Cs.  I'm also making my first forays into the world of quilting, and some soft furnishings for Big C's room are in progress.  

I'm going to be taking part in the Ravelry CAL, and hopefully the Crafts from the Cwtch Sock KAL.  More on these soon....

Finally I hopefully have something very exciting in the works :)
