New Years Resolution,,

At the beginning of 2013, I set myself a New Years Resolution to learn to crochet,, I never did,,, but I have now, sort of.

The yarn is from Hobbycraft, and it their WI acrylic yarn plus two balls from my stash. The pattern is the Cosy Stripe Blanket from Attic24. I was crocheting merrily along until I noticed that one edge was going wonky,, not sure why,, being a novice. So,, I have put it away for now and may rip it out and start again in the New Year. Besides,, I still have a scarf to finish and have just cast on another pair of socks.

I have been baking a little,,,

I haven't made shortbread for ages,,,, and hubby fancied a Barra Brith. The Barra Brith looks burnt,, but it wasn't.

Four of these chickens are winging their way to Germany, for my mother-in-law,,, and one has a new home with my hairdresser.

Made a visit in to Bristol the other day,, to have a look at the christmas market,,

It was a small market, but nice to see.
We also went to the Exeter one,, that was a bit bigger, in the grounds of the Cathedral, but no pictures of that one.

I have next years resolution sorted,, should be able to stick with it!!!!!!!
