With a Little Help from my Friends

Hopefully this is the first of many posts this year, that is if I can get my head round some of the changes here on Blogger ;-)

It's been a busy few months since I was last here. Life has gradually returned to something approaching normal but I have to say it has taken a while. I think I was on automatic pilot until Christmas, but I have definitely turned a corner now. Planning and getting ready for my daughter's wedding in May has been a most enjoyable way to concentrate the mind. And work keeps me very busy indeed.

I have been knitting a little, and for anyone who might be interested everything can be seen on my Ravelry projects page. This however is my latest FO, it's the Falling Leaves Wrap which seems to have taken me a very long time.

Several people helped me in the making of this by sending me their leftover yarn, you know who you are and thank you again. The yarn was a club yarn in the 2009 Socktopus sock club and is Toddy from The Yarn Yard a lovely mix of merino and nylon, great for socks and equally lovely for wraps too :-)

I used 4mm Aero needles and around 1.8 skeins of yarn.

This is beautiful and I'm thinking of adding the pattern to my queue.
