Somewhere I can let out my inner crafter without being labeled as even more insane.

Second post of 2014!

So, we’re a little less than 2 weeks into 2014, and since this is as far as I’ve got with the cat alphabet, I’m guessing that my plan of doing a letter in two weeks is a tad optimistic!

alphabet1I haven’t got much to do left on him, just his ears and then all the backstitching, I think. It’s just that I was kinda sidetracked by Susan, and all my maths work and things, so just having this as a WIP may be better, rather than stressing out about it 🙂

Speaking of Susan, here she is so far

The pattern is called Lucy, and was published in a Let’s Knit, several years ago. It’s knit in a sport-weight yarn, and is supposed to be done in a plain colour! But as we all know, boring plain colours are, well, boring! So I’m using a very variegated yarn, and I think it works out well together 🙂

I’m having a bit of a love affair with Susan right now- my January plan was etsy things, and so I’ve decided to swap January and February’s ‘aims’ around a bit, so January is for summer things, which Susan fits into nicely, and February will be for the Christmas market here in York. I think that will be a more sensible plan, rather than diving into etsy. I know, I know, I’m just putting off opening an etsy shop, but hey ho.

How’re everyone elses New Year plans? Still going strong?
