So much for normal service, hey?!
Well, in a way it has been normal for me because I managed to catch at least one of the three bugs doing the rounds. Yay me!
I have been knitting (and crocheting) in between feeling sorry for myself, and here’s what I’ve got so far:
I’ve made noticeable progress on my Aestlight shawl
And on my knee-high socks:
Although I have a long way to go on both of those items, I started and finished one thing in less than an hour!
A 5mm crochet hook plus some Sugar ‘n’ Cream that Sil sent me plus Fringe and I was done! I won’t link to any pattern because the one I used wasn’t very good and so I mostly made it up as I went along. It’s worked in treble throughout (North American double) and you just double the number of stitches every round by working 2 tr in one tr below.
Oh, this is a present for my mum. She never reads the blog, so I think I’m safe posting this now!
This may be the last post of 2009 so in case it is, I wish to send my warm wishes to you all over this SolsticeChristmasChannukaKwannzaNewYear period. Stay warm/cool (delete as appropriate) and if you have to travel, go safely. 🙂
P.S. I completed my Project 365! Yay me! To see the full set, visit this Flickr set (if you think you can stand seeing various parts of me three hundred and sixty five times!) I’ll put together a “best of” and post it either after Christmas or in the New Year.
