I can’t believe it’s December! Where has this year gone? My Christmas tree is back up – it doesn’t seem like long ago I was moaning about taking it down.
I received my latest copy of ‘Cast On’ magazine and a couple of designs caught my eye. First one being the little baby cardigan and bonnet – it’s so cute. Pity I don’t know any babies to knit for.
The second design I thought was lovely was this Aran jumper.
I have been collecting the swatches that I’ve been working on for my course and don’t know what to do with them. I can’t make up my mind whether to throw them out or keep a hold of them in case I want them in the future.
Here’s some pictures of my Christmas tree. I finished putting it up this morning while drinking half a bottle of non-alcoholic mulled wine to get me in the festive spirit. (Not that I needed much help!)
I got given this cute little nativity set a few years ago as a gift when I moved in to my house and I just love it.
I’d better not forget to hang up Cuilean’s stocking either!
It’s supposed to snow tonight with the temperature’s dropping to -7. I found pictures of Cuilean from last year running about in the snow. He had a great time.
I was having a bit of a tidy up of the laptop and found a photo of Cuilean when he was 8 weeks old. Isn’t he so adorable?!
I was out and about the other day with my camera and took a couple of pictures from Inverness Castle looking up and down the river Ness.
I went out to Dores (near Inverness) a few years ago on a beautiful freezing cold morning like today and took these photo’s.
I was in Helsinki this time in 2005 and loved the place. Here’s a couple of pictures of two of the church’s I walked past every day and never tired of looking at them.
When I was there I bought this postcard as I loved the knitted hats the little characters wore.
Especially this one…..
I’m wondering how easy it would be to replicate it…..
I’m thinking for next year of learning 12 new crafts in 12 months. The very first craft I would like love to learn is crochet, followed by tatting and calligraphy. As for the rest I’ll need to sit and have a little think about it.
If I don’t post again before Christmas, have a lovely time! x
