Still here, still knitting!

OMG, January is just flying past! I can't believe it will be February this time next week, and my little baby will soon be 17, and out on the roads driving!! WATCH OUT!!!!!

As I was warned, January working for Weight Watchers is truly manic, and it certainly has been. Running three groups a week has meant kiss goodbye to three days a week, as all the paperwork is doubled and the preparation time is trebled!! I still love it, though, but I'll be glad when it calms down again!

Of course my house has gone to rack and ruin, we are all wearing unironed clothes and I have managed but a speck of knitting. I joined the Debbie Abrahams Mystery Blanket Club and have done 4 of the 5 squares for this month. I'm not LOVING them yet, and they are in Roman cotton glace, which isn't in my top 10 yarns, but I'm giving it a chance.

I also finished my neckwarmer. I literally loved it so much I cast off and put it around my neck, loose ends and all. It is beautiful and the Malabrigo Silky is just heaven, thank you Stacey!!!

I have also done a little sewing. I had a cool idea for a quilt, and have cut some of the pieces out today.

I'll try and take some photos of all my projects so at least you can all know what I'm talking about!

Lily is at a party tonight, so Rob and I plan to go over to Cambridge and have a wander til we find somewhere nice to eat.

Have a great weekend!

lol You've just reminded me that my diet was meant to start this month too!! Glad to see others are sticking to their resolutions better than me;o)

Hope things quieten down a little to allow more knitting time soon.

And know what you mean about not believing our babies are as old as they now are! My elder 'baby' was 20 on the 14th!
