Yesterday I finished one sock.
It's the first sock I've ever knitted and I'm quite pleased. I did a short row heel and managed to not have any gaps or holes (although I did unravel it a few times to achieve that!). It's self patterning sock yarn just incase you thought I'd used loads of different colours - it's clever stuff. I think the 2nd one will be quicker and easier.
A few weeks ago I went to the local silk mill sale and bought silk in the sale for £15.00 a metre and made one curtain for my dining room door/window.
It only needs one curtain as it's really window dressing as the window/door is internal. Apparently the silk would have retailed at over £100 a metre when it was sold commercially a couple of years ago so I got a good deal. It hangs beautifully and drapes onto the floor looking very opulent.
And today I spied one hellebore peeping up through the snow.
A sign of things to come.
