I'm back

Good morning all hope to find you well.
You may have noticed the lack of posts recently,
apart from the Papertake Weekly posts
i decided to have a little break over Christmas time.
I went cold turkey......ish on anything papery which
freed up a lot of time to divulge into the new 
love of my crafty life Crochet/Knitting.

What could be better than looking at a basket
full of brightly coloured wool.

don't they look scrummy.
This is the wool i'm using for my latest project
here's a sneaky look at it so far.

It's going to be a scarf, but actually i love 
the way it looks over my wool basket.
I might have to make some more to trim it.
Looking around blogland i have seen a few 
flower scarves and thought they looked so lovely,
but could not find a pattern, then i found out that
the pattern came from a Japanese Crochet book.
Not being able to speak or read Japanese buying the book 
was a no no.  So i decided to get a close up of one of the flowers and made a pattern up myself and this is
what i came up with, I'm so chuffed with it.
Listen to me, I've only made 9 at the moment
there's another 37 to go
i may not feel the same in a bit.

I also wanted to show you a couple of fab pressies 
that Santa brought.

 He brought me a new knitting bag to keep all my
hooks and needles in it's so gorgeous.  I also got
this fab book which is actually a tin full of

 Aren't these sooooo yummy.


This is what you can make, but it's so
lovely with little iddy biddy balls of wool in such delish colours i might have to just stroke it for the time being.

Ok i've got to be good now and actually get some
housework done the laundry basket it close 
to overflowing. I don't know! this housework
keeps getting in the way of some serious crafting.

Thanks for looking today 
i'll be back tomorrow with this weeks
Papertake challenge.
Take care
