Wool on Sundays – 148 (After Christmas)


Welcome to the first Wool on Sundays of 2018. I hope you had a lovely Christmas and that the new year will bring you days filled with happiness and yarn :)

So far, 2018 has brought us Storm Eleanor who emptied our recycling bin over the drive and has made a hole in our roof but, unlike her fellow winds and rains, she doesn’t seem to have broken the internet so, given the horrific weather events others are suffering around the world, I’m counting us quite lucky.

As the last day of Christmas was just on Friday and I didn’t post anything Christmassy, I’m interspersing a little bit of Christmas with my latest 1/2 Pi Shawl (now finished and gifted) including Mrs Hare who was the life and soul with her new antlers!

In case you would like to make one of these shawls, you can find a ‘how to’ here


Fiona and the Christmas Tree

So far this year I have resisted starting any new knitting or crochet because I know if I do I’ll just keep on knitting or crocheting in every spare moment until it’s finished and I’m hoping to be more organised with my making and blogging this year…

We will see how that goes. I have, somewhat belatedly, decided on my ‘word for the year’, which I hope will help. Here is a clue:


If you have any wool/yarn posts to share, I’d love you to link up. The rules, as usual, are: 1). Posts must include some content – makes or musings or photos – related to knitting, crochet, felting, spinning or yarn. 2). Projects sewn from felt or wool fabric or stitchery using wool are also welcome but please don’t link posts that are exclusively about sewing, quilting and fabrics. 3). Posts don’t have to be from the past week but please put a link to WOOL ON SUNDAYS or grab the button from my sidebar and include it in or at the bottom of any posts you link up. 4). MOST IMPORTANT visit anyone else who links. The next Wool on Sundays will be on Sunday 4th February.

    It’s a lovely shawl. Thanks for the link. When reading your post, I realized the reason I am not crocheting right now is for the same exact reason as yours. I am trying to focus more on sewing and hand stitching. For me, to pick up a crochet hook would completing absorb me in yarn work.

    Adventure opens a spectrum of thoughts. I’m wishing for you to find joyful adventure in 2018.

    Very Happy New Year to you and your blog Janine. Your shawl is absolutely gorgeous and I am in awe. I have never mastered lace work. I think it requires too much concentration that I don’t have. I had a look at the first post to link up with you. kat Kat Katkoen. For some reason I cannot see a translate button on my iPad but I love the bird she has done.

    I hope the roof damage from Storm Eleanor was not too severe. I like your ‘word of the year’. The drawing is wonderful. Lovely photos too. The Christmas tree looks so beautiful. With Fiona sitting on the windowsill, the photo looks like a Christmas card. She is much taller than I had imagined and she has a very beautiful tail :)

    Happy New Year!
