CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS.











i've just finished my wrapping par one item i need to finish off! though i have a strange nagging feeling i've forgotten something.. carl made us some nom as fuck chilli con carne with his best ever recipe, which i can't find on the internets anymore but it's in one of my zines. it's been a while since he's made it.

we're going to carl's mum's house tomorrow evening for the weekend. i'm planning to start knitting a proper big project while i'm there. i've just bought & downloaded the pattern for this cute as fuck bed jacket / cardigan from ravelry and i'm going to go buy some wool & possible new needles in town tomorrow before i go meet emma & natalie for coffee in rochester in the afternoon. i think i'm going to go for dark purple. i'm aware i've got a fuckload of wool at home, but not enough of the same colour and kind to make a cardi, they're more for little projects like mittens and berets. we'll see if i ever actually finish this one. i hope so. it'd be my first big thing i've finished knitting.. just need to stick to it whenever bored / watching telly.

y'all have a nice xmas weekend. i probably won't get on the internets again proper til we're back home. unless i manage to sneak on carl's mum's laptop while the boys play their new games or whatever.

Ahah, i actually never finished any knitting goal too! And always start a new one. Maybe the most important is to wish we'll do it once!
Enjoy your week-end.

I love that snowy felt hanging over your bookcases (it's maybe not felt, but I think it is...?).

I just learned to knit! I can crochet already, but never mastered knitting. Not that I'm a master at either yet, but I have the hand of it more than I have previously.

Hope you had a good xmas <3

I used to knit when I was a little girl but I don't know how any more.

Lol I feel you with the whole nicking his mums laptop while they play games...here my boyfriend and his two brothers have been playing games for an entire week straight now.

SO BORED. I nicked his brothers laptop :)
