This year, in addition to the usual non-risky presents (mainly bottles of wine and chocolate truffels), I have also been given some no-calories treats, which reflect my rediscovered passion for all things knitting and crochet:
1. A subscription to Simply Knitting magazine
2. A book on how to crochet flowers, Crochet Bouquet by Suzann Thompson
3. A Cath Kidston flower suitcase with yarn and wooden knitting needles
At my age, the excitement could only be kept under control with a few glasses of red wine and my son's persistent nagging to help him build the Lego sets he was given, which I dutifully did, so I could think about my forthcoming yarn projects whilst building pirate islands and space ships.
Anyway, the colours of the Cath Kidston set would go very nicely with our 50s style kitchen, but what can I make for the kitchen except potholders? I'd love to get your advice. Please do leave a comment with your ideas. Thank you so much.
Wishing you all lots more festive cheer and a wonderful New Year.
