So, over Christmas, I had a cold, as I think half the population of England did. It started on Christmas Eve and I didn't feel well again until the afternoon of New Years Day, and I was back at work on January 2nd! So much for a nice relaxing break! Still, much knitting was done - see the never ending lace jacket is finally off the needles! I didn't get the hood I'd hoped for, just 2 pattern repeats of madeira sunset which made a decent collar.

I'm so pleased to get this finished; it's taken 10 months - with many breaks from it to make other things - but a final push was better than lemsips and paracetamol!
I seem to be having trouble with all these photos - they won't stay where I put them, so sorry if things seem a bit muddled!
I also managed to finish this scarf in Schaeffer Ann. Looks very effective and the colours are beautifully rich. However, so much dye came out in the wash! And when I wore it for a couple of hours, the sweater I had on and my neck, turned a delicate shade of purple!
I scored these 4 skeins of Posh Yarn Amelia DK in Dee's half price sale. The first yarn I've bought for 6 months, and as always from Dee, it's absolutely gorgeous.

Lastly, this is a consolation Christmas present. Mr.Diviknitty ordered a Jordana Paige project bag, at the end of November, but it didn't arrive on time. Indeed, we're still waiting for it! By way of an apology, the online store we were dealing with (I won't name them because I don't want to give them a bad name, and they have been very apologetic and helpful) sent me an Opal sock kit. So while most people have opened all their gifts, I still have one to look forward to!

That Posh Yarn looks like the most eprfect way to break your yarn diet. Love the FOs (but how frustrating about the dye!) and looking forward to seeing shots of the knitting bag when it arrives.

Hope the cold is well and truly gone now!
