New year, new start

It's been an absolute age since I was on here so i'm not sure if anyone is still taking an interest.  Happy New Year if you are reading this, if not then I guess i'm talking to myself - won't be anything unusual there. ;-)

In the past this has mainly been about my cardmaking, I still make cards but not nearly so many as I did and usually write and seal them before realising i've not taken a pic. More than likely i'm now to be found now with knitting needles and yarn in my hand rather than scissors and paper.

My daughter's friend had a baby on the first of the month and over Christmas I knit a couple of hats for him. I also did a pink one just because I liked the design. I intend to do more blue though as our neighbour is expecting a little boy next month.
The design is very easy to knit and has a nice textured pattern which makes it look and feel quite cosy.
 At the moment i'm knitting little preemie sized cardigans in pink and purple fair isle type yarns. 
Check back as I always take pics of my knitting and fully intend to make more regular use of my blog in the future. Thanks for looking.

They are lovely and look super cute on Wilf. They'll definately keep him warm on his outings xxx

*waving my hands in the air* Yes Sue I am reading your blog and Happy New Year to you too. Love the hats and I think you are really clever to be able to knit, something I cant do. My mum does so I buy the wool, the pattern and leave it up to her. Glad you are back in blog land Tracey xx
