12 Months of Pinterest

OMG I can't believe we have completed a whole year of pinterest makes!
Our new years resolution for 2015 was to make one thing from pinterest each month and blog about it.
it could be anything at all. This only feels like a couple of months ago but no, its December all ready.
So here is my last pin of the year....
Grumpy looking old woman!
what do you think? I'm so pleased with this cowl because i'm not a knitter so it was a real challenge. I really don't like a circular needle LOL its the first time ive ever seen one never mind used one!

spot the mistake.
Yep I went wrong. I don't know how to pick up stitches if I drop them or have to undo some so when I go wrong I have to undo the whole lot and start all over again. hmmm I did this three times.
you can see my mistake in the photo but I didn't notice it till I was a good few rows past it and I didn't have the will to  start again so ive left the mistake. lets call it character!

second one is work in progress.
I was so pleased with it that I popped out and bought a ball of brown wool to make another one.
I'm going to add these to a family members Christmas present. I hope they like them as much as I do.
I'm going to make myself one but can't decide what colour combo to choose.
What colours do you like together? I'd love it if you could leave a comment telling me what colours to use next.
Please pop over to Margaret's blog to see what she has made for December and also Carollyn's blog. these too ladies have soooo much more talent than me and I'm sure you will love their December projects.
We are going to start this all over again with a pin each month so if you would like to join us just drop me a line. It can be anything you want.... knitting, crochet, gardening, cards, papercrafts, glass painting, cooking..... even a housework cleaning tip. (yeah right) I don't think you will find any of those on my blog LOL
thanks for stopping by and thank you for any comments you might like to leave. I'd love to hear from you, even if its just saying hello so I know you stopped for a visit.
hugs Suzanne xx


  1. This is wonderful, I don't think it is grumpy at all. I think it has a professional look great knitting!

  2. I don't think you are grumpy, I have the same look when anyone takes my photo.
    Yes it really is 12 months since we started, time has flown by so fast, I look forward to 2016 and wonder what it will bring for us.
    Your cowl is lovely and you took on a hard pattern, and then you say you are a knitter, this pattern has made you a knitter. The problems you say you have are not that hard to do, when we meet I will show you.
    I think blue and white, or grey and white, even two shades of grey.
    Thank you for being my partner over these last 12 months.

  3. Hi Suzanne, I think this is fab, and to think you have never done one before, wow...well done..saw Margarets and she is a little wonder isn't she, I am thinking of joining in the fun next year...
    Have a lovely Christmas..xx

  4. Suzanne, you are a really talented and patient crafter and I certainly can't see a grumpy woman! This is a fabulous project - pink and navy blue would be my choice ! Wishing yu a very lovely Christmas time.
