Jen and I had a lovely walk after the kids had gone to school.plenty of time to catch up in the last ten months and plenty of sunshine.

Blankets and throws are the easiest as you get to learn new stitches and the tension isn't that important because you aren't wearing it size doesn't matter. I made one baby outfit which I found very difficult but got there in the end.
Crochet is much quicker which means I am more likely to finish a project. I generally do not like to make two of the one thing but with all the various wools available thanks to Lulu's stash I have been repeating bunnies.
I am working my way through the range of Wondersoft of which you can see marshmallow above. I also have two throws on the go as well and a Christmas cal.
Time for me to finish my own projects. I am never one for repeating projects as I get bored easily and need a challenge. However because the Wondersoft wool comes in a range of variegated colours I have enjoyed making bunny after bunny. As soon as I completed the candy rock one above I started a blue/yellow.
Lulu had shown a Christmas cal on her Facebook page that drew my attention.i have been wanting to do a corner to corner project and thought this would be ideal as approaching Christmas. Well even to have it complete for Christmas 2016! I love working on it and although generally C2C should be quick there are a lot of colour changes and I like to tidy threads as I go which slows it up. The squares are quite big so just on the decreasing part of the Santa one so far.
I have been having treatment for my hip so walks have been short but we still get to Mountstewart even if just for lunch.
