The first week of the new year is here and so far it has been a bit pants, mainly due to the fact that we have all been a bit under the weather as have many people this year. Yesterday was my first day back to work and boy was that a wrench. You know when you just feel a bit pants and you have barely slept, pah!
New Years Eve and New Years Day were spent mainly in pyjamas and a dressing gown and I have been partaking of a little crochet, and started joining my crochet hexies to make a start on my blanket.
I don’t have anywhere near enough to make a full blanket yet but I thought if I started joining it up it might give me a little incentive to crack on with it.
Did I mention I fell in love with instagram, well I did and I have been skulking around there for a few weeks now and have found some of my old bloggy buddies on there. Heather, The Patchwork Heart, has just made a beautiful cowl (Heather has also started blogging again, yay!) and shared a photo with us on instagram. I just had to have one too, and I thought I would use the yarn I was using for my blanket as it is so soft and the colours are really gentle.
I made myself a cowl.
Inspired by Heather and following the pattern published by the talented Kath of Inverleith.
This is just ideal for grabbing when I’m off out for a walk on the beach and I don’t have any flappy scarf issues when the wind picks up!
This did not help reduce my list of WIP’s at all but, pah who cares I love it.
