Happy New Year
So here we are in 2012. Time for resolutions for some, time for reviews for others. For me a time to take a look forward to what new things I might want to try in this coming 12 months.
2011 ended for me with a lovely yarnie surprise which didn't do the yarn diet much good. A few days before Christmas I decided that I wanted to see just what all the fuss was about by ordering a couple of skeins of Madelinetosh yarn. So I ordered 2 skeins of Tosh Merino light to give it a bash. I chose a sweet pale purple colourway and then promptly forgot all about my order. So you can imagine my delight when on Hogmanay morning the postie arrived with a parcel from the USA. Upon opening this parcel I discovered not only the lovely yarn I had ordered, but also all this,
|A wonderful surprise!!|
Yes, I have officially become a Loopy Groupie. Apparently this was my 6th order from The Loopy Ewe and I qualified for this lovely welcome pack of a clear tote bag, calender, sock pattern, sweeties and a surprise skein of yarn (Dream in Colour Everlasting sock in Henna).
Wow I sure ended 2011 with a bang.
The yarn I ordered was just lovely too.

So moving into 2012. I still have lots on the needles to keep me going, but I have been tempted and have signed up for 2 mystery shawl Knit Alongs. This is where clues are sent out on approximately a weekly basis and the pattern emerges in stages. A bit like a treasure hunt.
So I have one by designer Susanna IC beginning sometime this month for which I will be using this combination of yarn & beads,
|Mulberry Delight and Lilac beads.|
And a second one beginning in February for which I will show you the yarn nearer the time.
I also plan to learn to knit socks this year. I have promised my friend Gillian that we will learn together, so now I have told you I will have to do it.
I wish you all happy crafting in 2012. Stay safe.
