1. I'm aware it's been a while since I last posted, unfortunately I haven't been too well, I overdid things somewhat and then muddled up the date of my flu jab and turned up 24 hours too early. This lead to me missing sleep to get up early two days running which is what finished me. It seems that despite more than 12 years' practice I still haven't quite got the pacing thing quite right.
In order to combat my disorganisation I have purchased a diary for the coming year, it's simple, small but stylish and a great cheerful colour.
2. I have been enjoying this song a lot lately, it is simple but full of hope
3. I have done a lot of knitting lately but most of it is secret Christmas knitting, which I can't show on here just in case. In between I have been doing some small ornaments though such as the small jumper below. I'm also having a go at the adorable mini snowman from Mochimochiland's miniatures' collection.
4. I'm very excited about Kate Davies' forthcoming book The Colours of Shetland and am looking forward to knitting the shawl shown at the top of her blog and in the meantime am planning to knit her pattern which came out today - Snawheid hat, . You can see her adorable dog Bruce helping with the photographs of the hat here.
I'll try not to let it be quite so long before the next post.
