Scavenger Hunt

It's 2013!

Well hello there.

I hope you've had a lovely Christmas.
We had a great time.  On Christmas Day we went to visit Mr Clicky's Mum and Sister and then it was just the four of us at home; Boxing Day at my parents.  My Mum cooked a fabulous lunch for nine of us.

I did well for presents.  As well as all the usual candles/body lotion/sweets from the children in my class my Mum and Dad gave me a garden kneeler and a pair of edging sheers.  The kneeler is somewhat of a revelation, it has memory foam in the centre.  Kneeling on it is like being in marshmallows ~ I can't wait for the weather to cheer up so I can use it.

The weather has been very dingy and it's rained most days so I've been unable to get photos of my latest FINISHED project ~ it seems like ages since I've actually completed anything.  Today was crisp and sunny for the first time of what seemed like weeks, so here we go.

TA~DAH!!!!!!!!!!
I proudly present my Beach Stripe Surf Blanket.

I love this end of the blanket ~ lime green and purple *sigh*
and the whilst the other end doesn't make me sigh quite as much
I'm very, very happy with the end result.
Sorry, no 'big' picture, I could only get a small bit at a time in the sunlight!

Mr Clicky has been off work all Christmas so we've been drinking cups of tea together in bed rather than rushing out to work.  He reads the papers on his iphone and I've been carrying on with those large Granny Squares.  He glanced over at me yesterday and asked "Why are you making squares, you've just finished a blanket and we don't need another one."
Curses, I've been rumbled.  I knew he'd catch on.  Oh well, these are the ones I've finished so far.

So what will I try and do in 2013?

A few bloggy things:-
I've joined another Photo Scavenger Hunt over at Made With Love which I'm very excited about.  
To Blog every week and not fall behind.
Get back on track with Monthly Mosaics.

Knitting wise:-
Finish one thing before starting another ~ this is a perennial aim, only sometimes achieved.
Finish off a couple (!) of things in that naughty corner.

I need to loose some weight and get fitter and I've also decided I'm not going to be ill in 2013.

I'll be back with a review of my knitty year soon.

As always have fun.

Bye for now...............Clicky Needles.

  3. You (and others) have inspired me to crochet again and so I joined a ravelry CAL. I then decided I couldn't be doing with blocks in "American" language and having to add rows to make up to size so am now devising my own blanket using others' ideas!

I have just embarked on my own the last week, in French Style..... keep inspiring me! As for the bed scene, that is our house too ;) Kindle and tea and crochet...bliss, teens like to sleep too ... nobody can understand why I have started another blanket either, we have 2!! Fiona
