Yarn Along - A new Year

I know we are 2 weeks into the new year but this is my first yarn along of the year.
I have finally finished a few WIP's and so this last week has been one of new beginnings.
I started my 'they call me spidey' mitts and have been making good progress.
Daniel announced he wanted some socks, so I decided to use up my 'elf'' yarn before I progress to the first sock of my sock club. I am just making him some plain socks that was a free pattern on Ravelry.
I have also finally cast on Hitofude, for which the yarn has been all ready and wound for some time - anyway we are off!
Otherwise, we made some gingerbread at the weekend (its been a while).  So with instruction from Daniel (and a little help from Mary Berry!) we set to.
Its totally delicious and Daniel is right, it is perfect for breakfast.
I also used my new soap making kit at the weekend and have been very pleased with the results.  This is orange flavoured!  I have used it already and it is lovely.  It was very easy to do as I used a melt and pour base.  Then I added the fragrance oil and colour.  Next time I shall work up to the proper kit which involves gloves and everything!
Linking with Nicole and Ginny.
