Rose has gone down for her morning nap so I'm catching this opportunity to have a little 'me' time on the laptop without her trying to join in!
I'm also enjoying a coffee in my new cup and saucer which was one of my Christmas presents from Mum. Isn't it gorgeous!? I'm trying to be good with food at the moment as somehow I managed to put on 5.5lb's over Christmas! Of course I know how I put it on... by eating an awful lot of food and quite a few Bailey's! So anyway, I'm back on the Slimming World wagon for the new year.
I've finished one of my WIP's for 2011, this is my new headband. I wear my hair up in a bun quite often but then I can't wear a hat when I go outside so I thought this would be a nice thing to make. I found the pattern here on Ravelry and it was actually really simple. Cables always looked so complicated to me before but now that I understand what the instructions are telling me to do, it's not that difficult at all. I've worn it alot so far as the yarn is so amazingly soft, it's called Miski from Mirasol and is 100% baby llama.
(Sorry about the cheesy grin picture... it's Really hard to take a photo showing me wearing the headband when no one else is home!)
I've almost finished Rose's cardigan, I took this photo a couple of days ago and am now in the process of threading in the yarn ends and sewing on the buttons! :-) It's such a sweet little cardigan and fits her perfectly, so it'll be lovely for her to be able to wear it right away.
Okay, she's still sleeping so I'm going to dash and try to finish it off now. It would be lovely if today was one of those day's where she has an exra long sleep!
