Happy mail

I’m so exciteeed! As an early Christmas present, the Fiancé has bought me my very first yarn advent calendar from Bluebell Yarns!

Each teeny parcel contains a 10g skein of Falkland Corriedale 4ply, and I went for the non-Christmas colourway option so the colours will be a total surprise for me as I open them. I have some ideas for what to make using my new mini skeins, but I’m waiting to see what they all look like together before making a definite decision.

I just can’t wait to start opening them! Is it December yet??

FO Tuesday (because if I wait until Friday I’ll forget)

The Mandalorian bandwagon has been out, done its rounds, and got back to the station, so of course I chose now to jump on it.  One of The Fiancé’s nieces loves baby Yoda and she had a birthday on Saturday. I mentioned that I could crochet one in time, and he came out with possibly the silliest thing he’s said to me so far: “do you have the yarn?”

Do I have the yarn??  I probably have enough yarn in my stash to make a Death Star, the whole crew, and a 3D landscape to display it in.  Of course I had the exact colours I needed and he turned out suuuuuuper cute.

I will definitely not be making any more though; he’s smaller than my hand, and my amigurumi is very tight, so the sewing together was not a fun experience. But hey, I made a baby Yoda that stands up on its own and the recipient loves it so I’m happy!

When we went to Crewe

We saw little Miss Phoebe, of course, and she is even more teeny tiny and perfect in person!

The jumper I made will probably not fit for a loooooong time, but it was always meant to be for when she’s older so that’s okay. I also took a lot of baby books down because I will always be the Aunty who gives books for any and all special occasions.

Speaking of special occasions, during one of the short breaks we squeezed in between visiting everyone I’ve ever met, The Boyfriend proposed and got upgraded to The Fiancé!

He was mean and started off sounding like he was going to break up with me, so when it took a turn and he got the ring out I didn’t quite believe him!  Obviously I got over the shock and said yes, and now I just need to get used to saying “my fiancé” when I talk about him. It’s a transition.

We’re going to sort out somewhere to live first because I’m so tired of renting (and having upstairs neighbours) so don’t be expecting too much wedding-planner chat just yet. All that will come later 😀  In the meantime – on to house hunting!
