Jumper or Cardigan?

DSC_0321s

For Christmas I got enough yarn to knit a jumper…or a cardigan.  I mentioned this in my last post but at that time I had no idea what I wanted to with it.  Now I have decided I want to knit another OWLs (Yes! I have finished my first owl jumper, but that is another post :) but I can’t decide whether to knit it as a jumper again or as a cardigan… decisions decisions!

 

I’m trying to join in with Hannah‘s #homebakedgoodthings and posting a little accomplishment; I tidied my room!  I have no idea how to use a hashtag though.

Christmas

DSC_0069

Yesterday we put up our christmas decorations and brought the tree in from our back yard. I was a bit worried that it wouldn’t fit through the door… DSC_0110

Prim enjoyed the tree and the tree-decorating

Every year we go to Gran’s house for Christmas.  Yesterday Billy and I made chocolates for her.  There are about half of them on that photograph, we made some in a chocolate mould too.DSC_0149

A few days ago I made marzipan for the cake (we don’t have icing, just lots of marzipan), I’ve put the marzipan on the cake but not really decorated it yet; so far I’ve just written Merry Christmas around the edge of it.DSC_0061s

With the leftovers Billy and I made balls of chocolate dipped marzipan, but we didn’t put enough chocolate on (!) so Dad added more chocolate to them and also made chocolate brazil nutsDSC_0144s

The only christmas crafting that I can show you are the crochet snowflakes that I’ve been making over the past month or so…DSC_0153

Three of them were made using the Attic24 snowflake pattern, the rest I made up myself.  I blocked them on cardboard using a mixture of water and pva glue (thank you Hannah!), they are pretty much dry now and they look really nice when they are stiff

There has been lots of kitten-loving since we got Prim, but don’t worry, Apple and Blossom are not being neglected :)

Introducing Prim!

We have a beautiful new kitten, called Prim!

Tommorrow, it will be two weeks sincce we got her (the 14th), she was nearly eight weeks old when she came home, so now she is nearly ten weeks old!  She is a rescue kitten from Bentham and District Pet Rescue, from the center in Horton in Ribblesdale.

She is amazing.  She runs about and plays with us with lots of excitement and energy, and then she just gets tired really fast and goes to sleep :)

It is fairly easy to take a photo of her when she is asleep…

But not so easy when she is awake!

She is very good natured, and has settled into her new home really well.
