WIP Wednesday (and some finished projects too)

I thought it was about time I admitted to how many projects I'm working on at the moment and gave an update on my progress.

Trillian Shawl:

Still going on this one - and it feels like it'll take forever but it is growing nicely

Rob's Scarf:

I tend to take this one when I'm travelling because it's low maintenance - again growing nicely

Ripple Blanket:

This has been hibernating a bit but I've just added another colour

I've also decided to take apart the sleeves of my crocheted cardigan to make them smaller so I'm busy re-crocheting them

And now for a couple of finished objects:

Tiny Knitted Minion:

Crocheted Fox:

FO’s 2014 = 0+2 = 2
WIP’s = Need a proper count
Queued = 17 - need to be ruthless and remove some of these

Happy New Year!

A slightly belated Happy New Year to you!

It's the time of year when I promise to get more organised and sort myself out.  Since I've been back in my flat after Christmas I have spent most of my time tidying and organising so hopefully once I'm sorted I can keep it tidy.  2013 was a good year for me so I'm hoping 2014 can be just as good.

I had a lovely Christmas with my family and I think the hamsters enjoyed all the attention and treats.   Eve got them a see-saw as a Christmas present which they like playing with.

I also managed to (finally) finish the jumper I have been knitting for Rob in time for Christmas... and then forgot to photograph it before I came back to Sheffield.

Another exciting thing I forgot to mention before Christmas was that I went to see Andre Rieu in concert at Leeds Arena.  My friend won the tickets in a draw at work and invited me as his guest.  The concert was brilliant and we both loved the waltzes.  We had a great view from our seats too.

The arena itself is amazing to look at and with the lighting it really stands out.

I'm glad to be back in Sheffield and, in a way, back at work.  I missed seeing my friends over Christmas so it's good to get into my old routine and spend time with them all.
