a colourful end to 2013

Happy New Year everyone!

Did you get all your festive knitting done on time? Or were there a few IOUs...?

I had a colourful end to 2013 and managed to get a few personal projects finished during the holidays...



My first crochet blanket started in March and hibernated during the hot summer but I managed to get it finished in December. It's a Lucy of Attic 24 pattern - Granny Stripes. You can see more on my Ravelry project page. I'm already planning my next blanket...

The Magic Zauberball Socks knitted up really fast! These are a very addictive way to knit socks as the colour combos can be very surprising. Read more here. Each sock took less than a week but as I suffer from one sock syndrome there was a bit of a gap between finishing sock one and starting sock two...

Robyn also knitted up very fast (which I think is down to my Karbonz needles). She is a friend for another Arne & Carlos doll, Elizabeth. These dolls are abit fiddly to knit. Because of my 'looseness' I have to use 2mm needles but there is no sewing up!

Now on to 2014 projects!
