Well, it’s been a fairly quiet week, mainly due to wintry illness and lethargy! The television has been watched, most notably ‘Wolf Hall’ – gosh, that is good – books have been read, and yarny crafts have been in hand whenever possible.

My version of the Sophie’s Universe CAL is looking lovely. I had a few colour qualms earlier in the week but once I fastened off at the end of part 3 and took a photo I felt a lot better about my choices so far. I am using the Stylecraft colours suggested but I placed them in order myself, based on the other yarn colours. I think it’s coming together ok…

Another WIP is now complete too!! I saw a hat I liked in Simply Crochet magazine which used the crocodile stitch but unfortunately it was a toddler-sized pattern. So, after a bit of faffing about, I came up with this…

Please excuse the poor photo – there was no one around to take one of me so this not-so-good selfie will have to suffice! It’s lovely and warm though, and made in Stylecraft Extra Special dk with a 4 mm hook, my usual weapons of choice!

I finally finished reading ‘Love, Nina’ this week too, It’s been my book at bedtime in January, nothing too heavy, you can dip into it, read a couple of pages, leave it until the next night, ideal for me. If i read nothing else all day at least I know I have read a page or two at bedtime! So tonight I will begin something new, not sure what yet.

And it’s Friday! Hoping to get out for a stroll this weekend, breathe some fresh air, maybe find some snowdrops, oh and cast on for the Sous Sous KAL too, but more about that next week!

Happy Friday xx
