Christmas 2011 — the last!

Horsing around after Christmas (Copyright John S)
In my last post I had to cut off early because I had to go to dinner. I just thought I would quickly add the last of it, for the sake of completeness — and the last of the Christmas 2011 posts!

So after the day, I’ve had some orders for the hand-warmers and gloves from various friends and family. Will it never end!? Wonder-Mum and Wonder-Gran appear to be happy, and wear them all the time. Hurrah!

TJB's Kindle Cover (Copyright Corrie B) On Boxing Day, I spoke to TJB (of previous Plutonium Muffins fame) and he told me he’d been given a Kindle. This was rather thrilling, as I had been stuck for what to make for him, and this gave me the perfect opportunity. So, for the next day I furiously knitted away in absolutely gorgeous blue yarn, and bought some lovely buttons, and produced a cover for it. I gave it to him when we went to see Breaking Dawn – Part 1, and he seemed pleased enough.

JS after a visit home (Copyright Corrie B) I went back to London for New Year, and started on some cross-stitch…which has expanded into a huge cross-stitch project which has kept me occupied for the best of this week, when I returned to Devon. I’m going back to London tonight, and will get going on some knitting again.

My knitting resolution this year* is to knit something for myself for the first time. What’s yours?

Much love,

Corrie xx

Evil ball of green yarn (Copyright Corrie B) * Last year my resolution was ‘do not buy any more yarn until the stash is used up’. I lasted until the last weekend of November, when in a moment of forgetfulness, I bought a single green ball for 79 pence. Damn!
