So, I thought I'd join in the yarn along, especially as it includes books. The last few years I've not read much apart from parenting/home education/aspergers/autism/crochet/cookery type books and these days I'm finding I do have the time for more indepth reading, be it fiction or not. Pre-Rye I loved fantasy, thrillers, romances, historical novels and crime. I feel the need to widen my repetoire.
So I smile as I upload this photo:
And the crochet. It's going to be a snail for Rye, I never did get it finished in time for Yule or his birthday, and there's not much to do. I reckon this month will mostly be about finishing off any hang over projects... and there's a couple. Oh, and as I like to give hand made gifts for Yule (and birthdays too) and always end up trying to cram a dozen things into the last few weeks. I have promised myself I will make at least one item each month and pop it into a "gift box".
The item I will make this month will be the Sweet Eleanor Scarf by Qunice Tart
Oh and the first finished make of 2012 is a dolly blanket. The squares were originally made for a different project, but were not needed in the end, so they've been sat around for ages. Not really "my" colours, but mindie likes pink, the pram has pink sides.......so it works.
