January Round Up

January has seen me working away at a couple of fairly time heavy projects. I've now only got a handful of stripes left of my granny stripe blanket before I'll be darning in the ends and crocheting a border. I'm more than a little bit excited to show you the finished product. 

My felt number ones have taken taken me a fairly long time mainly because I've been making them in between crocheting rows of my crochet blanket. I'm now pretty much a blanket stitch pro and to anyone that doesn't know how to blanket stitch I urge you to give it a go. It is very, very satisfying.

I've had a pretty happy January not just because of the time I've spent on my crochet blanket and blanket stitching action. New Year's Day saw a two hour pool and table tennis tournament between my sister, mum, husband and myself. I've eaten Christmas cake (I know...in January!) and pizza. I've had a weekend away in Canterbury.

Coming up in February...I'm going to make a Francoise dress and finish my crochet blanket. I'm going to learn to run faster. I'm going to eat pancakes.

How's January been for everyone else?

Do pop over to Lucy Blossom's for Handmade Monday.

  2. You've obviously had a busy month (and helping me with the button coding too) I love all your number ones, I keep meaning to learn how to blanket stitch but I never quite have time (or I keep putting it off) Have a great week.

  11. This 1st month has gone by so quickly. I love Christmas cake and usually have a couple of the very small individual ones that I can have through the year. :)
