Hello to 2016!

Another year is here - 2015 most certainly flew by!  I'm trying my hardest not to reflect on any of the negatives of the last year (indeed, the last few years!) and whilst I don't make New Year resolutions as such, I am determined that I will be happier this year. 

I didn't seem to finish a huge amount of projects last year in comparison to previous years and definitely didn't achieve half of my planned project list!  I've stashed a lot more yarn though and popped my Yarndale cherry.  My #bestnineof2015 from Instagram was a rainbow of yarn, that's for sure!

I was very lucky over Christmas to receive several skeins of Wollmeise as gifts (well, funds to purchase Wollmeise!) and managed to get the skeins I'd been lusting after in the last update of the year.

There's a skein of 82 Pb, Fuchsia, 2 x Xaverl und Rosi and a skein of Xaverl.  I've been tempted out of my semi solid yarn shell just lately and after seeing a fabulous picture from Woolly Wormhead of the Xaverl on a FO, had to stash some! 

I also broke out one of my favourite skeins of Wollmeise Pure in Wasabi to make the December Woolly Wormhead release, Rosalind.  I absolutely love fingering weight hats and this is the perfect combination of lace and slouch.  I'm already planning another in hot pink but also eagerly awaiting the new release this week!

I was also gifted the most uh-mazing pair of long fingerless gloves from Carla for Crimbos - sparkly, lime green and black!

I still have loads of WIP's to finish and have, as always, added a few more to my list.  I'm determined to finish my Aisling first though and am just working my way through the last raindrops section before starting the border - I've estimated a should have 10g or so of the Truly Hooked OMFG grad left (below shows it last week as I'd just started the 5th section, that bottom yarn cake is MUCH smaller now!)
