I hope you all had a happy and peaceful Christmas spent with those who mean the most to you.
We all had a wonderful Christmas. It was as magical as I thought and wanted it to be.
I’m hoping 2013 will healthy and happy for you all. I love a new year approaching the possibilities of what it can hold are endless and I hope your new years hold many wonderful possibilities.
I’m glad to see the end of 2012 its not been the best of years but we are all healthy and happy and have gotten through it relatively unscathed and we have the most wonderful addition to our family that we could ask for and that is a lot to be thankful for.
I guess we should see if I’ve managed to do any knitting now lol.
I had just cast on Susie Roger’s Reading Mitts and they are complete. Lynn over at Minding my Own Stitches said they were a great knit and are her go to mitten well they are mine also. They are the most wonderful knit, quick and easy and with enough pattern to keep you interested and the little bit of lace makes them look so feminine looking. I love that they come in different sizes as I have quite a small hand and the small size in these fit just perfectly. I can see many more pairs of these being knitted!

I’m going through my list this week to see what’s next to be cast on. I did intend to cast on the Hermione’s hearts Ron hat and then move onto the mittens to match but I’m short the needles ! I have a bag full of every needle or so I thought and just when I’ve the next project lined up to start I don’t have that needle..oh well an excuse to check out yarn..oopss needles I meant lol.
I had aimed to complete one pair of fingerless gloves this year and this completes that section but I like the other pairs so much that I feel some of those will be knitted also and probably in favour of the scarves but we shall see.
