Welcome 2015!

Christmas has been and gone and we are now at the end of the second week of January.  For the last half of last year (well since last May really) I have felt that I have been on catch-up without actually catching-up with myself!  Maybe I will feel more organised and in control in 2015.

Since mid December I have been crocheting the Attic24 Cosy blanket, its a vibrant blanket in true Lucy style.  I love it.  There's a pack for the stylecraft colours from UK based Wool Warehouse.
I am on row 46 and I made good progress over the Christmas break, but now I am back at work am slowing down (inevitable really).  Here's some of the stripes.

It's an easy pattern and I am enjoying the process of making it. 

What else for 2015?  
Coffee making has undergone a transformation, I was given a Dualit Milk Frother for Christmas, it heats and 'froths' the milk (only takes a couple of minutes while the coffee is brewing).  I had thought about getting one of the Dolch Gusto machines, but when I looked at the footprint they were a bit large and the pods seemed expensive, I also decided that it is just the frothy milk that I wanted so a milk frother seemed like a good alternative.   I am looking for the ultimate coffee though and decided that I would make a note of my thoughts about the ground coffee that I try - and explore some different flavours.   I have promptly lost my first two reviews scribbled on a bit of scrap paper, the first was Taylor's of Harrogate Guatamala   and is much nicer than the second pack - which I can't remember what it actually is!
I have also started Bullet Journaling in an attempt to get organised - it is working well so far, but it is early days. 
I would like to get to grips with lace knitting - will this be the year of lace I wonder?   I am in awe at some of the wonderful Boo patterns on Ravelry and would love to try using some beads.  Maybe I will actually manage something this year!
