I've missed you *smiles* But it has been nice to be away for a little while.Of course, this does mean I have a blog reader groaning at the seams that'll take me weeks to catch up with, plus a whole bunch of stuff to tell you about.
First, I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas (or other holiday) and New Year.
I got some lovely crafty presents from my mum, brother and boyfriend *grins* My best present deserves a post of its own, so more on that tomorrow perhaps...
The very first present I opened in my stocking (yep, mum still does stockings even though we're grown ups - this is because she is awesome) is actually one of my favourite presents overall, a doodling/colouring book. It's so cool, I love doodling and I love colouring, so of course I have made a start ;)
My lovely brother bought me this book I have been lusting after for some time:
There are some great projects in here, one of which is a Morse Code Quilt. I've never tried quilting but I am tempted to, just for this one project *laughs*
Mum bought me some Knit Pro Cubics needles - square needles... I'd put them on my wishlist because I was intrigued and mum thought they sounded interesting...
I did actually get 2 sets, but one is already in use ;) Well, I had to cast something on to test them out of course *grins*
Boyfriend very wonderfully bought me some yarn. He was apparently quite relieved to discover that I had put something specific on my wishlist (but, bless him, he was planning to go onto Ravelry to do some research on what to get - I almost wish I hadn't put anything on my wishlist now - I wonder what he'd have come up with!)
Knit Picks Imagination sock yarn, in Unicorn. I'd put this on my list after discovering that my sock yarn selection is sadly lacking in anything containing alpaca. Obviously this had to be rectified *laughs*
Well, as this already quite a long catch-up post, I shall leave it there. But I have more to tell you about- I haven't even started on the reveals of the Christmas gift knitting projects yet ;)
