Well January went quite quickly which is always good as it is never a really great month. I'm not all that keen on February either but I do find this time of year much easier now that I have a job to give me structure and keep me occupied.
I don't have much news.................. I've been knitting and have finally finished my "Christmas" socks - which ended up so huge that Mr Locket was the lucky beneficiary.
I've also finished my green hitchhiker scarf and I absolutely love it. Fred has christened it the "Dinosaur tail scarf".
It is so warm and snuggly and so very difficult to photograph............
these pictures made me smile as they show how totally inept I am with my camera. But I quite liked them because you could see enough of me to know that it was me but not quite enough for me to start analysing and criticising and objecting to what I saw. Unfortunately the green scarf doesn't go with my pinky/orange dress but I wasn't prepared to go and have a complete change of clothes in order to photograph the scarf.
I have started another hitchhiker as it is a great telly watching project - totally mindless but interesting enough to want to actually do it. This time it is in a ball of Regia World College Colour in 6ply.
And I have started a new pair of red socks using the Filey pattern - but unfortunately you can't see the design on the socks (again because of my dodgy camera skills)
The pattern tells you to use lots of stitch markers that probably aren't really necessary but I like having them there as Moogsmum made them for me a couple of years ago :o)
My only other news is that I have discovered a rather surprising new hobby - well it is very surprising to me - and pretty much everyone who knows me too!
Hope you are all well and enjoying the snow (if you have any) or the sun (if you have that instead)!
