|Arc de Triomphe|
The Eiffel Tower is never far from any of the views, peaking up in the back of photographs but we decided to leave our visit til dark so we could see it lit up, it was worth the wait. The walk up to Sacre Coeur nearly did me in, so many steps - 270, but the view was worth it, coming down was a piece of cake!!
That was the first week of this new year. Now we are home we are getting to grips with the quiet and slower pace to the day. Not many plans for this year as yet apart from the usual. I have plenty to knitting and books to me occupied and there is always walking should the mood take us.
I don't make resolutions, easy made, easy broken, but I do want to try and master crochet this year. Last year was socks and I managed that, in fact have a new pair on the needles. Today I have pulled apart a cardigan I made a few year back, I was never happy with it so why not reuse the yarn, especially as there is 400 grams of it. I'm nearly done with the sweater for Dale, just the neck and sew it up. I then need to decide what next to make. I do have yarn aside for another cardigan for me, and I do want to make a ten stitch for our bedroom and to be honest I think I have enough yarn in my stash to make one. I really want to shift some stash this year, some of its been around far too long.
So there you have it, up to date. Maybe I will try to blog more often, especially as we have a new laptop and it won't be so painful to make a post. Until then bye for now
