Just a quick look at my latest effort. I'm not at all sure about this one. The pattern and colour selection came from a pattern book but it is very bright and I'm not sure that I will finish it although I love strong colours. I rather feel for the poor little person that might end up wearing this. What do you think? In my corner of the world yesterday was last year and didn't it go out with a bang. The noise of fireworks, in the housing estate oposite us, started at about 9.pm and continued with great enthusiasm until a couple hours into the morning. We weren't dog sitting this year but if we had been I think I would have been under the bed with them. I'm not a fireworks fan. I know they're very pretty when they're not being just plain loud but I grew out of them a long time ago - they terrify animals, not just dogs and cats but horses can do themselves injury running into fences in panic - they waste an awful lot of money and can be downright dangerous in the wrong hands. "Bah Humbug!" I say. So there. Now that I've nailed my colours to the mast, you'll know what an old sourpuss I am but I still want to wish you all a Happy New Year filled with all sorts of good things. Bye for now until next time.
