The dark days of winter are here in Scotland and 2013 is coming to a close. Christmas this year has been a lovely family time after a long struggle to this year and brought a lot of closure. The man who killed my Uncle was convicted and sent to prison for a long time so we can now start to move on.
One thing that I've found a love for this year is colour or more specifically colour work. It's really not as scary as it seems. I've dabbled a little before but decided to dive in full force and knit Little birds by Ysolda Teague.
Which involved steeking or cutting knitting for the non knitters. Again not as scary as it seems.
I utterly love the cardigan and have worn it a lot.
The other big thing for me for the end of this year was the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who. I started watching Doctor Who when I was very small and have loved the show since I first hid from the Daleks whilst they fought Tom Baker. So when it was announced that there would be an anniversary event in London on the day of the anniversary, I booked my ticket straightaway. There was of course, some pre event knitting.
Police box mittens in OMA Tardis and Dreich
And of course the scarf - which was finished off for the event a little shorter than planned but will eventually be fully finished
The scarf even got to meet some Doctor Who companions - Lalla Ward aka Romana II who was my favourite.
Louise Jamieson aka Leela
And Jenna Coleman aka Clara Oswin
I met and listened to many other Doctor Who people which was really cool.
