First of all a little Giveaway. I am having so much fun with the King Cole Tinsel Yarn I decided to make this little cutie and offer her as a Giveaway.

Hurrah, I have finished the back of the scary cable cardigan I am making for my granddaughter. This is the start of the left front. The orange thing, well that is part of my next King Cole Tinsel creation. Any ideas what it’s going to be?

Continuing my personal Read through the Alphabet challenge I have now reached M and the wonderful Kate Mosse. A suitable gothic tale for this time of year.

Thanks so much to everyone who left comments last week, about the knitted village. I took your advice and wrapped it up individually and carfeully put it into bags to be opened in a certain order.

So what happened? Did Little Miss F like it? She opened the blanket bit first and gave a great whoop of joy and put Cinderella to bed under it.

Sometime later she opened the rest of it.

So it’s back to the white cable cardigan which requires my total concentration. I have already made two mistakes, but one I didn’t notice for weeks and is so far down that if I have frog back to it I know it will be the end of the project. So now I regard it as a wearable training project!

L is for Marina Lewycka. I loved her first book and her second book and in my opinion this one is the best of the lot. Plot summary- what happens to a group of people and their grown up children after their life in a 1980’s commune. Very funny in parts.

But wait, who is this?

Not as Mr E said a hamster in a christmas decoration but a hedgehog. Yarn is King Cole Tinsel. Such fun to make. And an antidote to scary cable pattern.
