This is my end of 2014 review… a chance for me to look over my shoulder and reflect on the last 6 months…yes…this little sanctuary of mine is 6 months old and as we trip in to 2015, I feel both excited and content, which I think is a good place to be.
June 2014 saw not only the birth of ayarnyrobin… but the completion of my friendship blanket.
and the Robin’s nest!
In July I completed charity headbands
a happy ripple blanket
a vintage tea cosy
and wrote my first tutorial
as well as spending some ‘down time’ on the river
August saw me settle outside to crochet in the warmer weather and do a spot of blog hoppin’.
I also broke into my sumptuous alpaca stash
and enjoyed the summer holidays with the boys, making some special memories
and completed a light weight summer scarf
and wrist warmers ready for the autumn
and a much needed Summer break away was enjoyed also.
September saw the struggle with my hook to complete this basket weave baby blanket
which led to a frivolous yarnpom in the park
and the arrival of Jess!
I lost my crojo completely in October…partly Jess’ fault
eventually finding it, after much help from some lovely readers, and completed a couple of beanies for the boys.
and more than a few poppy brooches,
and Summer turned to my favourite time of the year…Autumn.
In November I hooked myself a beanie
and had a great time at the circus
and was very kindly nominated for the Leibster award

I love it, and can’t wait to read about the covers for your Mom and Dad. I got my 7 completed for my 7 grandchildren just in time, and am now making one for my Mom for her Feb. 4 birthday. Also making a heavy lapghan to use when navigating my power chair to the grocery in this freezing weather. Happy New Year.
Wow you sound busy….definitely a good idea to make something for your self…. If you are any thing like me then making items for your self are Always on the bottom of the list xx
I love your look back! What a fantastic idea … and look how much you’ve done! Brilliant! xx
Love this Blog, and the pictures you take are lovely. The summary is awesome, I was thinking of doing one but it wouldn’t be half as good as yours. All your projects are amazing I love the hot water bottle cover and I love the choice of colours you use. I made some wrist warmers for my Mum and my Sister in Law, and they look similar to the ones you did. I wonder if we used the same pattern. Anyway I just wanted to say Happy New Year and keep up the awesome blogging 🙂
Thank you so much for your kind words. May your 2015 be filled with happiness and yarn.
You should write a review… I would love to read it xx
