Time seems to have been a bit of a blur since my last post at Christmas. Lots of things going on - lots of knitting, beading and some sewing. I have one less tooth that I did the last time I posted as the dental problems I posted about last time got much worse and I was pretty ill for a few days. When you combine that with lots of horrible weather, work stress and lots of other things including an issue from my last job, it adds up to several weeks of me not really coping with life so well. I had a very down spell which I've thankfully come out the other side of now.

Life is onwards and upwards now and I'm looking forward to some time off that I've got coming up courtesy of the Easter Holidays and the Royal Wedding. Hopefully that will mean lots of knitting/sewing/general crafty time. Meanwhile here's a picture of the Laminara shawl that I finished in January. It definitely converted me to Estonian lace knitting. The yarn is some Shetland laceweight that I bought at the Iknit day 2 years ago for the bargainous price of £2.99 for 640 metres.
