Thanks for reading. My blog's going to get a little quieter for the next couple of weeks as I'm off on my holidays. I've got some posts scheduled though sharing some details of my holiday projects and reviews of some of my favourite knitting and crochet books so I hope you can pop over for a little look some time :-)
Hope everyone has a lovely Friday. I'm off to do some more packing and have a look at the other FO Friday posts on Tamis Amis
