Undeterred by the bitter winds coming from the Baltic states, Mr Josiekitten and I donned all our woollies and set off down to the town to pick up a few bits and pieces for the weekend. The sea was much rougher than last weekend, and we decided against a beach walk - it really was freezing cold!
I popped into my LYS to pick up a couple of balls of yarn for a 'must-do' project. I've just started a pair of wrist warmers, after seeing a completed pair on the Phoenix Knitting Forums. The pattern is called Rose's Wrist Warmers, and looks lovely. The cables are making the knitting quite slow, so I won't post a photo until I've done a little more.
I've just finished a little project-ette, taking inspiration once again from Lucy at Attic24. I've made a Teeny Tiny Flower Posy brooch, using oddments of Rowan yarn left over from the Debbie Abrahams workshop. I'm not usually a broochy type of person, but loved this, and shall wear it on my jackets to bring a little touch of colour to the dull winter days.
Cute, isn't it? Here's a closer look at my little crocheted posy. Lucy's instructions are so detailed, with lots of photos to help.
My new buttons barely cover the bottom of it, so I am on the lookout for some more treasures! You can be sure I'll let you know if I find any! Enjoy your weekend, and I hope it's not too cold where you are!
