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!!!!!!!


  1. How lovely your crochet looks - hope you get the wonky edge sorted. Love the little hen pyramids too. We were at Exeter recently too - and I was intrigued to see lots of bees and other polinating insects on that stall with all the Christmas roses and other garden stuff.

  2. For someone who is a novice at crocheting you've done really well. Edges on blankets are always a pain. Persevere.

  3. Crochet is looking fab, well done! It occurs to me that I've never been to a Christmas market. Must rectify that soon!

  4. Caz! Your crochet looks gorgeous, such beautiful colours, how can you even think about unravelling it? It looks just perfect to me. The baking looks delicious, something I need to start thinking about, and your pyramids look good too.

  5. Hi
    Thank you for visiting my blog.. the wool I used for that shawlette is from a firm called Cuddlebums! That's all it said on the label.

  6. Crochet - once attempted becomes quite addictive! Lovely market pictures, looks like you had a lovely day :)
