Back in the Crochet Saddle!

I have realised recently that I don't seem to have been devoting too much time to me recently. By 'me' I mean spending the time doing the things I love - mainly reading, crafting and running.
So I have made a conscious decision to try and fit more of this into my life and started by doing a bit of crochet. For those of you that have read my blog before, you will know that I taught myself to crochet a couple of years ago, but so far I have limited myself to cushions and granny squares, so it was a pleasure to have a go at making something from a pattern, and here's what I came up with

It was really nice to make something that will be very useful at this time of year too (plus it matches her coat!)
I got the pattern from this book, and to say it is the first time I have followed a pattern, I found it really easy to follow!

The snow continues to fall here, and only 25 days to Christmas - lots to look forward to!
