New year, new projects

Half the fun of Christmas is, for me, planning and making gifts for friends and family.  It always gets a little hectic, but I love the challenge of thinking of what people would like and trying to match it with what I could feasibly make.  That said, come January, it is fun to be selfish and think only of what I would like to make for myself.  And there’s no deadline!

After much umming and ahhing on Ravelry, I’ve chosen a beautiful pattern designed by the talented Kate Davies.  The pattern is, inevitably, far more ambitious than I’d initially realised, and as you can see I have yet to get beyond swatching!  But, the pleasure of selfish knitting is that if it takes ages or goes a little awry, it doesn’t matter a stitch.   Wish me luck!
