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!
