A new year, same old challenges. ..

January has been a month full of challenges. We have had floods and heavy snowfall as well as being locked down.

COVID-19 has been rampant so other than work and a bit of walking life has been spent indoors. A great excuse to attack the stash some might say? But my time has been spent finishing off Christmas presents and doing bits and pieces.

Not the first place you’d look for a fox!

I have been making little woodland creatures from a kit supplied by Let’s Knit.

And I have been dabbling in storeage:

Cabled cosies covering jam and pickle jars

Pattern taken from Let’s Knit issue 166.

Moss stitch little and large baskets

The larger basket is made with double moss stitch and the small one is made in moss stitch. They are both made from one cake of Aldi yarn originally bought to make a cowl.

New month looking for new inspiration with the stash ๐Ÿค”

Taking matters into your own hands ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿ‘‹

My partner has made himself a mask for when he is out shopping. I think he was fed up waiting for me to make him one.

He is too shy to model it himself !!!

And how did he make it?

He has used 2 men’s handkerchiefs, 2 rubber bands and a bit of tape. He can hook it over his ears, whereas the ones I have made are tied at the back.

Meanwhile in other news I have dyed my hair. There wasn’t a great deal of choice and I wanted red so here goes:

A bit brighter than I was expecting but an improvement on the roots. And hopefully my hairdresser can sort it out when she is allowed to reopen ๐Ÿ˜‚

Have you been tackling anything yourself during lockdown?
