Time is flying and Christmas is drawing close! Today's weather here is definitely more Winter like - very cold and was slippy in places on the pavements - as I discovered while dog walking! Now I'm wondering if I'm going to be ok cycling tomorrow (I worry in case the roads will be slippery) so I think the plan tomorrow will be to give myself enough time to walk to work if need be. Will check the 'slippiness factor' at around 7.30am.
I've had a nice weekend. Got the baby blanket finished so will get that posted off with the hats this week.
Today I made a face cream for myself. I am finding that my skin is so dry with cycling now that the weather is getting colder. I put in some nice oils - wheat-germ, almond and some hibiscus extract and also some glycerin - it feels lovely on. (If anyone would like the recipe let me know).
I made a star decoration based on this crochet pattern . Instead of the suggested wool and hook size I used very fine crochet cotton and a 1.75 hook. First time I'd really crocheted with this size - very strange! Like using a needle and thread! I added a few sparkly beads and a little bit to hang it up at the top.
I again adapted the pattern and made a little ring -
Thought it might be nice to wear something a bit festive!
Well that's been my weekend. Pop over to 1st Unique Gifts to see how Wendy is getting on with her campervan clocks and to catch up on the other blogs.
Have a great week (and start searching for your hats and scarves now - Winter is coming!)
