I’ve been manically busy for the last 2 weeks knitting Christmas presents – and hopefully I’m finally making progress!
I have finish my mummy’s hot water bottle cover using a lovely Alpaca/Wool mix which is so soft I don’t think I’m going to want to give it away! It’s a little out of shape in the picture as well. I found the pattern on KnitRowan for free, they have a whole range of free patterns so it is well worth a look.

I am also officially half way through the beanie I am knitting for my brother – HURRAY!
I found the pattern on Ravelry.com and it has been so much fun, and it has taught me how to double knit (I am now completely obsessed with double knitting!).
If you knit, crochet or spin (or anything else you can do with wool and yarn) and you haven’t visited ravelry.com you simply must! I came across it by chance and it is a wonderful hub of information, socialising and inspiration.
