Hi everyone and firstly a Happy New Year!
Hope you all had a good Holiday season - ours was quiet as we stayed here in the UAE - but there was one very good thing about that ......... gave me lots of knitting time!
Therefore I have finally finished my Arrowtown shawl! I am absolutely delighted with this shawl! Its really simple, just garter stitch and a ruffled edge but I think the simplicity of the pattern works so well with this yarn. Not only is it beautifully dyed, but also is as soft as clouds and as warm as toast! If there is enough interest I will write up what I did - it really was childsplay!
So I introduce my first official FO of 2014! Photos courtesy of my lovely model Flo - who has just turned 17 - where oh where did that time go!
In other news I have decided to start a blog for my other obsession in life - beauty products! Now I know there are literally thousands of blogs out there covering beauty - but not that many for those of us who are over 40 (well quite a bit over 40 in my case!!). I really don't see why we should not continue to celebrate being a woman and deserve to be as gorgeous as those under 40! Who does not like to pamper themselves from time to time! Anyway please do pop over there and have a look - I don't take myself too seriously and I will tell it like it is when I review a product! Expect some tips and some journeys back into the past to reminisce on beauty products of old............

Who says you cannot be gorgeous whilst you are knitting :)
Welcome to 2014 and lets have some fun...........
