my first trendychale







So Christmas is a distant memory but despite all that was going on with my dads hospital visits he is ok and we had a great Christmas. Lots of nice memories and food! We popped to London on the 30 December to see War Horse, brilliant night we all loved it.


my first trendychale
I've seen so many trendychales on Instagram that I had to join in and knit one during my time off, 11 days, lovely break. Here is mine finished, knitted in Debbie Bliss Cashmerino DK in discontinued Tomato. It came in handy this week on my first day back to work, heating not on over the Christmas break so the office was so cold.


second trendychale
I'm now knitting my second one, in Grey, same yarn, so soft and warm but not itchy. I think I will knit one for a gift for my sister but need to find the right colour, maybe duck egg blue?

Oo, love the colour, it looks so warm and cosy. I have a shawl that I keep in a drawer at work, it's so useful on those days when it is a bit cooler in the office.

The name is great and I had a lady come up to me in a shop tonight to say how much the colour suited me!

It's not a colour I would normally wear but I'm glad I did, I love it
