Monday 3rd January
May I wish you a HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!
I've been trying for quite some time to put together one of those clever photo mosaic thingys and I'm sorry but this is the best I can come up with. A few images that made me smile when I looked back.
I am persevering to learn how to make a mosaic and I am hopeful that one day I will be able to.
Today has been 'take the decorations down day' ~ a job I enjoy nearly as much as putting them up. Everything gets wrapped in tissue paper and stored in strong shoe boxes so they're all snug until next Christmas.
Mr Clicky Needles and me bundled up the tree in a tarpaulin and took it to the local council's tree recycling skip. Mr CK was a sight to behold ~ he decided not to put said tree in the open door bit but to throw it over the top into the skip. It must have been 10 feet tall. It took him 5 attempts, not helped by me one bit because I was too busy howling with laughter.
It's in there now, so all's good.
Whilst we were having fun at the skip, snow was falling again. It snowed whilst we put the tree up and it snowed when we took it down, which it sort of poetic I think.
I've just realised I've not shown you the present I made for Northern Monkey in the Phoenix Forum Christmas Swap. Northern Monkey just loves green so I made her this green shawl in Drops Delight (another nice sock yarn from Scandinavian Knitting Design!!!!!!!!) it is quite loosely spun so has a bit of a halo. (I'm making some gloves in it at the mo' I'll show you tomorrow.)
I also tried to get some green pressies to go with it, Green and Blacks Choccy, green Knit Pro stitch markers, a shawl pin, a black sparkly purse (we all need a bit of sparkle) and a Christmas Mug with felted characters on it.
As I predicted on my last post, dancing on the Wii did me in so I obviously need to do it more often.
I've another day off tomorrow so I'm going to my LYS ~ Along Came Polly's knit group morning, to indulge myself!
See you soon! ...........Clicky Needles.
