Happy Holidays

I'm just dropping in to make sure the blog stays active. I've just read on Ravelry about someone whose blog disappeared without warning. (Gulp)

I don't suppose that anyone is still reading this as I've been so very bad at updating it but I'll start by wishing everyone who is a very

Happy New Year.

Hope you all had a good Christmas (if you do Christmas) and jolly holiday of other variety if you do that!

I seem to spend all my spare time on Ravelry nowadays which is why I've not blogged in a while, it's even more of a time suck than this is, and having a laptop doesn't help as it's there all the time unlike my old pooter which I had to go upstairs to use.

Since talking to you last I have started going to meetings of the Bradford Weavers Spinners and Dyers Guild and have met many lovely new people (in real life!!). I'm planning on joining this year. The Online Guild was great and some of their workshops were fabulous but I wasn't taking proper advantage of it.

My latest knitting is a pair of Pararie Boots to keep my poor cold tootsies warm. Because they're quite long they should stop the drafts that whistle across my living room floor from biting my ankles. The first one is a bit loose around the foot so I'm doing the next one on smaller needles. I may have to scoot over to the Texere open day and get me another 5.5mm circular.

Love to all
