Lots to catch up on after missing the last two weeks.
Let’s start with Ériu which was close to being released on my last update.
Well she was released and I have to say she is my favourite and I know, I know my mind chopped and changed from one to the other as they were being published but now that I’m looking at them Ériu is my favourite.
Farraige the sample I had been working on in my last yop update is finished and is currently being test knitted in my group here. I’m expecting this one to be released in May and she is the first Wrap in my Summer Memories Collection.
I’ve been working away on several other items, some of which I can’t mention just right now and some like my website which are always ongoing.
I have been trying to make the effort to knit on some selfish knitting items, so for me this means a return to knitting on my Fledermaus. I got busy and put this aside late last year and it’s time to make some progress on it. This part of my list has been sadly neglected, this I will be making sure to correct. A bit late for this year but you can see where I’m going to be going next year with my list. I love these cables and it’s such a delight to work away on them just following the pattern and listening to podcasts.
Kitchen re-decoration is still ongoing although it’s very nearly finished, new seats on the chairs have to be made and the last gloss colour on some shelves and presses and I think it might finally be finished. My working desk is also going to get a make over.
Oh yes new hair colour…as some of you may know…I love colour and needless to say this transfers over to my hair…I’m always changing it both in cut and colour. I’m pretty sure I’m a headache for my hairdresser because of this but anyway, just before Christmas I decided to grow and cut the previous colour out and go natural…now naturally I’m several light grey shades to white (I started turning grey in my early teens!). Where was I, oh yes..I got bored with it, it was a bit dull and blah and to everyone’s surprise I stuck it for 4 months but I caved and on Friday I got colour!
Now isn’t that so much better! It’s like someone has restored the normal setting 🙂
