Middle of January already
Where on earth is the month disappearing to? It is already half way through January. Weather today is cold but struggling to brighten up.
Tony and I went back to our carving club last nigth and it was really good to be back. We did have to drag ourselves away from the fire last night before going out but thoroughly enjoyed the evening when we got there.
When we got home I made a start on another shawlette. This one is going to be a gorgeous Midnight blue with a deep blue sparkly thread running through it. I have only knitted a little it but it is looking really nice so far. I am becoming a little obsessed with all this shawl knitting. I will have to start putting them away to give as presents. Trouble is I can't bring myslef to part with them when I have spent so many hours knitting them. I have discovered the most beautiful Fairtrade cotton yarn. Debbie Bliss Eco baby is utterly beautiful to knit. It is so soft and there is a fantastic range of colours. I have just ordered some in pinky shades so that I can knit a little shoulder wrap to keep the sun off my neck during the summer. We do get the occasional sunny day here :-)
