My favorite place in winter........
Something new to wear........Hooray!

I'm so pleased I have finished my latest knitting project. A cashmerino jumper for myself!...(double knitting and cable) It is so long since I knitted anything for myself, as I'm usually caught up in projects for selling on. So now I can wear this and stay warm, I took the pattern from a favorite hand-me-down which I loved, I have the lucky ability to be able to copy knitted garments but the unlucky fate of not being able to read a pattern, not sure which way round that should be. I blame my dyslexia although I believe it is also my greatest gift, being an optimist most of the time, anyway anything that feeds creativity must be a gift as far as I am concerned. I am now planning the next project and want to do a cardigan, I'm going away for Christmas and it will be a perfect opportunity to take some more knitting with me. I might not be able to blog as much, but I'm sure I will have plenty of tales to tell when I get back. Happy Christmas!!!

  1. Ooohh - it looks so cosy, I wish I had a fire in my living room!

    As for being able to follow a jumper and get the pattern you are very lucky - I don't think I could do this, at least not with knitting!

    It is a gift, as you have a real eye. turning your perceived disadvantage (by others) into your advantage is the best thing! Very inspiring
