Welcome to the last Knit and Natter for 2018. Thanks go to everyone who has read one of these posts and especially to those who joined in with the natter. Without you these posts would be nothing, as I know the natter is the best bit.
So did everyone have a Happy Christmas? I was reminded the other day that whilst every day may not be a good day, every day has a good part. So true, if we just stop a while and think.
Our Christmas was lovely. It started out hectic, with the baking of the chocolate mince pies.
And then there was the stollen I made on Christmas Eve. Let’s just say there was a bit of an issue with the yeast, and the whole procedure ended up taking twelve hours.
Mr Humbug loved making up a stocking for me. He was positively beaming with the thrill of it, and I am now the happy owner of a fairy glider, a large glitter balloon and some unicorn chocolate currency! If I had known all these years that Mr Grumpy would become Mr Happy just by filling a stocking, well it would have happened ages ago.
Boxing Day was the chance for a walk. The fog lifted and the sun came out. I spotted a mug tree in a garden, I kid you not.
I would just love to know the story behind that.
As for knitting, there has been none. Bit of crochet, little bit of stitching, but mostly not.
I fell to wondering what my favourite piece of knitting for this year had been.
Maybe the dragon, who went to school with Little Miss F on St George’s Day, with the comment that her Nana can knit anything.
Or maybe the Unicorn?
And who can forget Morgana?
The jumper for Master T or
Yes this, maybe not the most fun, the grey(groan) jumper for Toddler J, but oh the compliment from his Mama, worthy of a baby boutique in Wimbledon! Indeed.
Changed my mind. Morgana wins!
Did you have a favourite project you made in 2018, what was it?
So, that’s the last Knit and Natter for this year. Do so hope you enjoyed this one.
Have a very Happy New Year, and see you in 2019.
