Happy New Year! (2017)


Well that was a little hectic!

The run up to Christmas (like every year) is full of crafting for presents and each year I think I have it all in hand and I most definitely won’t be knitting/crocheting up until the very last moment. And each year, I’m wrong.

Well, guess what??!! This year I wasn’t! 😊 I actually had all the gift knitting finished a few days before Christmas and the pressies that needed to be posted were finished at least a week and a half before! Yay!


I made all the ladies in the family a Daisy Stitch Facecloth and then bought a few other bits and pieces to make up a little pampering kit. I love the facecloth pattern. They were so easy to make and knit up really quickly. And the plan is to make some for myself in a whole rainbow of colours! Daisy Stitch Washcloth project details here.

There were a few non knitting related pressies received, but of the knitting related, there was a gift from Diane that I fell in love with straight away.


I knew exactly what I wanted to make as soon as I opened the present 🎁 the 3 Colour Cashmere Cowl by Joji Locatelli.

I’d seen the cowl that heathwitch made in person at our weekly knit night and decided that as soon as I could, I would be making this stunning cowl.


It was all going so so well, until I decided that I didn’t quite like the way some of the colours were working up, so this happened…


Thankfully, it was only a small amount to take back, and the new colours are working so much better


Just a few more sections to complete and then I can use it for the rest of the winter! I’m off to knit some more now..

So tell me, what’s on your needle(s)? How’s your new year so far?

  1. Ooh, I do like that cowl pattern and have added it to my Ravelry favourites 🙂 I’ve found that washcloths are always received well when given as presents (I often add a bar of nice-smelling, individually-wrapped soap as well).
