I usually like January, a bright new shiny year stretching ahead, not this year though as I managed to catch the flu! I’m seldom ill and I don’t take kindly to being so either but this knocked me off my feet and my energy levels were low. I’m ok now and my energy is coming back but good riddance January!
On the plus side I’m happy to say spring is happening with little buds and bulbs appearing outside and little pots of daffs inside AND Creme Eggs are back in the shops! We have had snow though and as I type this it is snowing again but it’s wet snow and is disappearing as soon as it hits the ground, thankfully!!
I have managed a little crafting during the month to keep me sane.
I have started my Carbeth Sweater by Kate Davies Designs which I hope to have finished in time for Edinburgh Yarn Festival. The yarn is Kate’s Buachaille in Squall.
I also finished my ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas Socks‘ by Dani of Little Bobbins, the yarn I used was Frosty Pines by The Little Tailoress.
There have of course been some little creatures too, all off to their new homes now. I have decided that this year I’m focusing on bunnies, they’re my favourite and they always sell first too so I think that others like bunnies best too. I’m not saying that there won’t be the odd fox, bear, hare, mouse or fawn appear at some point but mostly bunnies this year.
