It’s my first Christmas at Doug’s, we started seeing each other just before Christmas last year. I’m writing this on my main present from him, a HP mini netbook in pink. It’s been some years since I’ve owned a pc but we plan to have it triple booting Windows 7/Ubuntu/iDeneb. Getting there will be a little complicated to say the least, but it’ll be fab if it works.
I finally finished my mini sweater on Xmas day – photos coming soon. I had abandoned it to marinate for a bit after finding myself making the same mistakes on the final sleeve, three times in a row! I’d decided to finish it over the Xmas break since finishing is good
I have the first of a pair of socks for Doug on the needles and am going to start on an Urchin Beret today. The yarn I’m using for that was handspun for me by Jeni quite a few years ago. It’s thick and thin and in beautiful purples and turquoises – again, photos coming soon! I’ve been saving it for the “perfect project”. Not always the best thing to do because we can hung up so much on prefection that we never actually produce anything.
I don’t tend to do New Years resolutions because I feel that you should be able to make changes in your life at any time rather than just at the beginning of the year. However, next year, I’d like to use some more of the materials I’ve been hanging onto for too long. That includes cutting into the Taj Mahal tapestry fabric I bought from eQuilter a long time ago. I’m still not sure what I’ll use it for, and I think I only have a metre of it, but it’s been in my stash too long. Any suggestions on what to use it for would be gratefully received!
