I won on EuroMillions last night!!

Alas it was not the £44 million top prize (what, you actually think I'd be blogging now if I had!!) but a massive £5.50!! It was a profit on the cost of my ticket so I cam very, very pleased.

Where did the year go??!!

Wow - where has the year gone? It's already April & I've been a bit rubbish at updating my blog although I have actually been doing things without telling you about them.

So, I'll start with the knitting that I'm doing at the moment. I've been working on my Central Park Hoodie with James C Brett Aran with Wool, it's going well. The pattern is fairly straight forward & the yarn is lovely to knit with.

I've started & finished a pair of socks for my husband. These were knitted in Kaffe Fassett's designs for Regia Sock Yarn in Mirage Fog. They have a unique 'design feature' - for some reason I put the decreases for the gusset in the wrong place. It seems that it's okay & has worked as I just couldn't bear to rip them back.

And this shows them half finished & I think shows my tattoo off nicely...

My Pomatomus' are resting as I've had a bit of a disaster with them - I did have to rip back about 20 rows as I was losing stitches somewhere. So a brief hiatus for them, back after the CPH I think.

Next post, I'll update you on the other things happening in my life.
