We are nearly a week into this new year already. The weather has been mixed and the snow that appeared on Boxing day night had just about gone by New Year's Eve.
Yesterday I took down all the Christmas decorations. They take me several days to put up and then it's a bit hectic getting them all down in one go before the 6th. I cheat though and keep the snowman out until Spring.
I have lots of projects in the offing for this year. I have plenty of yarn to knit up or weave. Some I bought at the Knitting and Stitching show back in November and then I went to the betwixt event at Texere on 27th December. I chose patterns and yarn to make small things so they will get finished. The weaving on the loom has been there for months and did not grow very quickly so I am taking that off and going back to chunkier yarn with a fancy one thrown in.
After reading Terri's blog I have decided to have a go at the Book Riot Read Harder Challenge. You choose books from different categories and I thought that this would get me away from the enevitable detective books I read. Though saying that I could use detective stories for many of the categories I will try hard not too. It is 24 books in all so roughly two a month. You can link it in to Good reads but I am gopin gto do it informally in a nice notebook and maybe keep track of it all on here. I am looking forward to getting started.
This maybe the year I get to grips with crochet but on the other hand it probably wont be. pathetic I know. My excuse there are only 24 hours in a day and plenty to keep me busy.
Happy New Year
