Hello blogging friends
I’ve decided to take a little break from my blog. I don’t know how long, but I’m sure I’ll be back. Previously I blogged a lot and got a lot out of it, but this year as my job has got busier, including lots of evening meetings, I’ve found myself doing it less and less. This has been a source of such pleasure in the past I don’t want it to become a chore or to feel guilty I haven’t posted. So, in the same way I’m acknowledging what I do and don’t want to knit, I’m being honest and saying, I don’t have blogs in me at the moment.
I don’t want to lose touch with my blogging friends, so I can be found (for now) at @mollieandclaire on Instagram and mollieandclaire (at) yahoo.co.uk is our email address. I will still get notifications of postings so here too.
See you soon
Claire & Mollie xx
PS: I’m taking part in Stitching Santa so I’ll have to blog at Christmas!
PPS: here are a few hats I’m making:

Our family have had a glut of pompoms ever since we made loads of pompom decorations for my sister’s 40th birthday party in August 2015.
Today my niece Jess was tasked to make a wreath out of them…
And she certainly delivered! Fab isn’t it?
Since I last posted I’ve been to the wonderful town of Loule, swum, eaten, frolicked in the sea, injured my knee, gained crutches and had enforced knitting time yesterday. Consequently I’ve finished granddaughter Emily’s Christmas present in record time!
What I was contemplating yesterday morning. Everyone else had gone dolphin watching. I was very happy!
Such pretty detailing on this pattern!
