Finally catching up on posting pictures of things I have knitted...

This is the mystery object in the really bad photo I took -- it's a scarf with gloves at the ends -- a bit difficult to photograph one's self wearing it! :)

I knitted these socks for Greg for Xmas -- my first socks ever!

And I finally finished my 2nd square for the Tŷ Hafan quilt:

I will admit I had some slight trepidations about the brawn, but it smells yummy and tastes delicious -- very nice with mustard.

It is clear and cold here tonight.

Blwyddyn Newydd Dda

Not much news to report. As usual, I am going to start this year by promising to post more frequently -- we will see if it happens!

Some time ago, we bought half a pig for the freezer from our structural engineer. At the time he asked if we wanted the head as well and of course I said yes. It has languished hidden in the freezer since then, until the other day when Greg accidentally defrosted it thinking it was a leg of lamb! So we are now making brawn...

The recipe began by telling us to remove all the bristles on the head. We eventually discovered that a razor works much quicker than tweezers!

In other news, I had a small little accident in my car before Xmas on an icy patch of road and Jon has wonderfully been fixing my car for me -- so I made him this lovely apple pie -- I hope it tastes as good as it looks!

Other than that, not much really... Some rain, but what else is new? :)
