I got some truely wonderful Christmas presents which included a new camera bag, an external flash, a year long subscription to Practical Photography magazine, Skull Candy headphones (yes my very own pink ones so I no longer have to steal Mark's!) and loads of other wonderful things.
So what have I been doing? Well mostly learning to knit! My Mum gave me some vintage knitting supplies that belonged to my Nanna and my Great Grandma (as well as allowing me to liberate many of hers!). I think the most beautiful is this stunning vintage stitch counter that belonged to my Nanna... it's so pretty.
And yes I have also been knitting... not just taking pretty photos of knitting things! My first completed item was this chunky ribbed scarf, wonderfully simple and quick to knit. A win win situation!
And next, some (very simple) hand warmers. Got to love these (especially in all the cold weather we've been having) and again, very quick to knit up. Even for a super slow knitter like me each one only took a couple of hours.
