Carina Coat Complete

Finished at last, I said I would get it finnished before the end of the year, and, true to my word here it is, the photo does it no favours, especially as I have put it on wonky, but it is lovely to wear, very soft, and actually is more tailored than I thought it would be. Will be wearing it on Friday at the Arts centre.

Now I have the pleasure of finding my next project, I have a couple of socks to finish off then I can have a look around for something else!!! The next Lana Grossa magazine is out at the end of January, so maybe something from there will inspire me. I really need to try another crochet project( and finish it).

I have had a very exciting 2006, can't believe just how much I have achieved. Here's looking forward to 2007....Wonder what it will bring. All the best to every one xxxxxxxx

'Twas the night before Christmas......

...and all through the house, chaos was errupting, last minute pressie wrapping, thank goodness for films on telly, at the moment the girls are watching 'Madeline', peace for an hour!!

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care....
We are off to stay at the farm tonight, for two good reasons.... means we don't have to rush on Christmas day, and we can go out for a festive drink tonight( baby sitters are staying in!!!)

Now dash away, dash away, dash away all.
Hope you all have a fantastic Day.

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!!!!!

Good times had by all at Knit Knots yesterday, we ate (mince pies, cranberry cookies and bananna cake) Drank (lots of caffine based drinks!!) and were incredibly merry ( thanks to the endophines released by the repetitive process of knitting!!!) Thanks everyone for coming, (especially those of you who pointed out I hadn't been a good blogger recently....again....what will Santa think????) Never mind I'm making up for it now.
I have been tagged by Carrie-Anne to come up with a list of 6 wierd things about myself. I used to think I was quite Wierd, but it seems to be quite hard to come up with a list.
After much thinking, here is what I came up with:

1. Volcanos. I have always had a fear of volcanos, when I was little I can remember Waking up after a nightmare, and my mum reasuring me that there were no volcanos anywhere near, I'm still not comfortable seeing them on telly even now.

2. Wrists. I can't stand anything around my wrists, which is why I don't like wearing a watch, and when I do I have it half way up my arm so it looks odd.

3.Chalk. When I was pregnant with Maisy I had a craving for chalk, this was totally wierd, knew it wasn't right but I just couldn't stop myself!!!

4. I have been arrested..........

5. When I peg out the washing on the line I like to make sure if I use two pegs they are matching!!!

6. mmmmmmmmmmmmmm ?????? have to think a little harder for number six I'm sure there must be something else, I'll have to ask around.

Hope some of those are wierd enough.
I will be back as soon as I have thought of my final Wierdity.

A Merry blogging christmas!!!!!
