It's almost Christmas time, and I am so very excited! I have mostly all of my sewing projects for my nieces finished, I've bought some new books to read over the festive holiday, and I have set myself a challenge.
For all that don't know, I am a complete novice when it comes to knitting. As in, I have never picked up a pair of knitting needles....until recently.
Over the past couple of days I've been teaching myself how to knit. I was given a ball of this beautiful alpaca wool from the lovely ladies at Let's Knit! http://www.woolwarehouse.co.uk/rico-creative-twist-tweed-super-chunky-lilac-mix-002-100 and got stuck in
Well. I see why people love this craft so much: I've not been able to stop! I've ordered a few more balls of this yarn, and have set myself the challenge of making a big scarf over Christmas.
And so I thought, what is everyone else doing over Christmas? Is anyone else seeing these few days off as a window of opportunity to teach themselves something new, or to tackle that project they've been saving?
I'd love to see what you've all made post-Christmas, and to update this post with your progress along the way!

I and the CB team have some very exciting news to announce: we're reintroducing the Member of the Month to the Your Space section of the magazine!
Not sure what all the fuss is about? Let me explain.
Our wonderful mods will have the task of flagging up one member who they feel deserves a little recognition. This will happen every month, and I will announce the winner in our 'Hall of Fame' too.
So, who's excited? I know I am!
Have a lovely weekend crafters
