Happy New Year!!
I can't believe it is that time again! We have a couple of days before we return to school, so a couple of days of relaxing before returning to the fire.
I have been making steady progress on my garter marler sweater.
I am loving this so much - it is a very easy cosy knit. So much so I decided to cast on a Christmas Eve knit in the same style - some fingerless mitts.
There is no pattern for these, I just followed the stitch counts in Knit Mitts by Kate Atherley. The mitts only took a couple of days knitting at my mum and dad's (we visited for a few days from Boxing Day). And once I had knitted the mitts I felt inspired to do a hat - so the Musselburgh it was. I have already made good use of both on a walk to our local library yesterday. All of these projects are fabulous stash busters I don't actually know how much stash I have/will use in these but it is a lot so that also makes me very happy. It's been a good start to the year!
It is my 50th year this year - so I have challenged myself to do 50 things for me. I will report here on some of those. So far, I have returned to the library and intend to do more reading, and I have made a couple of recipes from a cookbook that I have had for a while but I will share more about that later.
I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and Happy New year. I will see you in a week!
