Scavenger Hunt

Tuesday 28 December 2010


Hope you are all having a lovely holiday.
We woke up to beautiful sunshine on Christmas Morning, it looked stunning in the snow.

I got that digital photo frame that I was after and I've loaded it with pictures of holidays, friends, family and the garden. Now I need to get scanning in photos that are pre the digital camera.

We didn't go wild on present buying this year, DS' best presents were probably a fire steel (to start a fire when you are stuck in the wilderness!) and a Swiss Army Knife and DD's a flappy ski hat.
Not made by me I'm afraid.

A few finished bits to show you. Firstly a triangular shoulder shawl with an eyelet pattern.
This is Drops Fabel sock yarn in a colour called Candy Mix.
I would recommend this yarn ~ it's £2.20 for 50g so you need 2 balls for a pair of socks. It's available from Scandinavian Knitting Design in Reading and they are very quick and efficient with orders.

The other thing I have to show is my stripy waistcoat. This is made in King Cole Riot and that green button that B sent looks great with it.
Finishing these things left me in a bit of an in pass, I couldn't quite decide what to start next. Another Baktus? a sock? a jumper?

In the end I've plumped for this scarf.
I got this roving yarn at Alexandra Palace last year. I'm making a crochet mesh scarf with it and I will then felt it in the washing machine. I've been promising myself this for a long time so it is nice to be making something with it at last.
That snow is starting to go, slowly turning into slush, the temperature now being above zero degrees instead of below.

Right I'm off to have a go on Wii Dance 2, so wish me luck!!!!
Bye for now.....Clicky Needles.


  1. Your shawl looks really nice, the colours are lovely, and I will be very interested to see how the scarf turns out when you felt it.

  2. Oh you are a naughty enabler! My yarn diet begins on Jan 1st, so if I order Drops yarn now, does it count if it arrives in 2011?! Lovely colours in that shawl! Happy New Year to you!

  3. ....but Josiekitten it's sooooo cheap and sooooo lovely. ;-)

  4. Hi there, I just added your blog URL on my blog as a favorite! ((hugs))
