Santa's waiting patiently to make his journey down the chimney
The advent candle's waiting to be lit...
But as I look outside, the sun is out and the sky is blue, all is calm its a beautiful day.
Looking outside Its hard to imagine we are approaching Christmas and Milly is running around the garden like a spring lamb
Now I couldnt have achieved these photos with my old camera, Milly is a fast mover.
The fire was lit and DH and myself made homemade bread. For a change my mixture was spot on, the bread was soft and fluffy, however DHs mixture didnt turn out as good. Normally he makes excellent bread. I ordered some presents on the internet, and a did abit of knitting.
The Christmas bed socks for DD are completed. Oh how I wish there was a way you could all touch these lovely socks, they truly are incredibly soft and fuzzy. The wool was bought in a local charity shop, vintage Jaegar Angora Spun.
The pattern which is on Ravelry had a lacy panel but I couldnt see it because of the pile, so I left them plain. I didnt find this pattern easy to follow, too little information, I do like it when a pattern states how many stitches you should have left after decreasing, just minor points like that, that were omitted.
So onto the scarf. After knitting such soft wool this sock wool feels like rope, I assure you it isnt. It is a great little pattern easy to knit. Im so enjoying knitting this scarf, its so different, and the colours in the wool are not disappointing me. Ive completed 15 points, the pattern says I should be able to make 40 with my 100gms. I had to go onto 3.25mm needles as my tension was too tight, it will be interesting to see how many I get from my ball.
Hope you had an enjoyable Sunday
