A Happy end to January

Well, January is over now and we welcome February, the month of love and it is actually Chinese New Year's Day on the 14th too, so it will be a double celebration. I received some good news at the end of January. First of all I've won Lisa and Sarah's (A Spoon Full of Sugar) giveaway. Yay! I can't wait to see the lovely craft goodies, that they bought from Japan, with my Rascal. I'm so happy. They are such an inspirational mother and daughter team. I love all the crafts they make and the goodies that they bake. Check their blog here.

My thyroid condition is getting better too, the doctor has lower my medication (a little, but any progress is good).

I've also finished some small knitting projects.

A colourful pair of fingerless mitts. I bought the yarn from I-Knit, it is self patterning and I love the result. Cool huh. :)
I used Debbie Bliss Cashmerino chunky to knit this slouchy cable hat. I'm not sure about the colour, I should really stop buying purple yarn. :) I'm so tempted to buy more yarn in cream, grey, pink or blue yarn this time. Hmmmm.......I can see a yarn shopping trip to the Stitch and Craft Show at London Olympia next month. :)

You know purple really suit you. I love the hat. But then again you have to try other colours too!
