Life With Yarn

Archive for January 2013

Where did the time go? One moment I was thinking about Christmas and the next, we were throwing out the wrapping paper and recycling the boxes. On the plus side, I finished my present knitting with a week to go so there was no last-minute Christmas Eve frantic knitting as with previous years. Instead I spent Christmas and the early part of this year working on a lovely laceweight cardigan designed by the very talented Ashley Knowlton. It is beautiful and will look great with spring and summer dressed – assuming we get a summer of course!

I’ve also been working on some designs including a shawl that I hope to release in the next couple of months. I’m currently knitting a bag and doodling around with a cardigan idea and a jumper for next winter.

As for resolutions; well, I’d like to be a lot better at updating this blog for a start but crafty related, I’d of course love to have some/a pattern published and I’d also like to learn to spin after a very kind person on Ravelry gifted me a drop spindle and some fleece. I also really want to start to dye more yarn myself – I dyed the yarn for my sister’s cardigan and enjoyed it so would definitely like to do some more.

So that’s me. I hope you had a lovely end of 2012 and that 2013 brings you plenty of happiness.
