Cold and dark evenings

Well,it is that time of year. THE clocks will go back in a few days and Winter not be far behind. So out comes the gloves, hats and scarves. Must not forget to add cowls and snoods to the list of winter warmers. I spent some of day sorting through my stash of yarn and I have searched for patterns that I could uise with the stash I have available.

At the moment, I am knitting a poncho. It is looking lovely. I will post a picture when I have finished it.

Here is a picture of it so far.

January Knitting projects

Well! Knitting was slow for me in January due to not having time to knit. Work and visiting friends took priority. I knitted a few little things. I made a small toy dog for a knitting swap I was involved in and a balaclava. Yes, I made another one. The first I made back in Decemeber was in a burgundy colour. The second one was knitted with a tweedy like DK yarn. It was nice to knit with but slow. It took longer to knit this one than the first one.It looks lovely though. Will post a picture soon.
