WOYWW #216 - new socks, more socks, undone socks.

Today I am joining in with WOYWW which is Julia's brainchild. A very nosy way to look at people's workdesk and craft spaces. It's very addictive.

I have been away for some time. Mum was visiting from the UK for six weeks, then our friends were here for a few days. Lots of entertaining, laughing, walking, playing, but no crafting. So today is the first day I have been able to get up to my lovely craft room and although I haven't really done anything, I have been able to put stuff on my desk ready for doing. So, my desk, not in the middle of work but about to worked on....

My Sleepy Seep has finally been finished and is reading to be wrapped and sent to its new home. A new baby boy here in Canada but of English parents. One of my new friends from the ex-pat group I joined. I am thrilled for them. He was born on the same day as the new Royal baby.

On the left is a pile of Mollie Makes bought over by my visitors wi lots of new projects to do. Left corner front are two new patterns for socks and new wool and needles. Who knows when I will get round to doing them. One of the pairs is for my Mum for Christmas or Birthday depending on how quick or slow I am! The boys chose the wool for her which is nice (especially as they agreed and didnt argue about it). The other, I am not sure.

At the front is the sock I started on ages ago. It is a work sock, red, grey marle and cream. I undid it all because I decided I wanted to knit them for Huffle for Christmas and the rate I am going, I better start now.

I think that is it. Hopefully I will be able to get round to more people this week as the kids are on holiday (actually thinking about it, that might mean I have less time - we'll see!).

Right I am going to crack on with this work sock now.
