A Wee Gift To Myself

After all the handmade goodies I crafted for family and friends for Christmas, I felt it was due time to make a little something for myself.

So on Christmas Day in the afternoon my sister and I sat down, got our crochet needles and wool out and spent the afternoon crocheting.

Yes, I'm sure you're thinking it sounds like a bit of a 'nana' thing to do {or maybe not?}, but it was in actual fact an incredibly relaxing and addictive activity to do!

In the days following Christmas any spare moment I had I could be found with my crochet hook and wool out.

At the Italian restaurant we went to for lunch I whipped it out while we waited to be served and while the others sat and read newspapers at the end of our meal.

On the tube on our way home out it came again.

I am not ashamed to be a little on the crafty side.

And the result? A slouchy beanie/hat/beret.
I think I like it...?
I'll definitely wear it cos it's cosy and warm and the temperatures have been flippin freezing around here lately.

Did you 'Gift Yourself' with anything this Christmas?
