WOYWW #229 - not quite a pair!

Hi woyww'ers. How are we all today? As usual please go here to find out what this is about. In the meantime I guess you want to see my desk.

A slightly different angle to normal. My bag, which was given to me by my lovely friends in England before I left, and it's contents looking very 'pink' with the snake not too far from being finished. Next to that is my sock. One is completely done (thanks to the wonderful Donna at my knitting class who put me right) and the other is progressing well. I managed the fiddly wrap and turn stitches and am now working up the leg. You can see the finished one posing next to my ever increasing pile of socks for Christmas. Apart from my Union Jack bunting glass of water I think that's it for me this week.

We have visitors about to turn up from England and their 'space' is the other half of the loft I work in, so I may not be here next week, or I may be on a different table.

Can't wait to see what everyone is up to this week, there were some truly amazing desks last week and I struggled to get round all the people that visited me, some I wasn't able to leave comments which is a shame.

Lovely pink desk, that snake would make a great pair of socks too. That's a pretty bag too, it certainly holds a lot!

Visitors - a good reason to be distracted - hope you all have a great time. Loving the news on the socks, the turning bit seems so tricky, am so admiring that you don't give up. Your lovely bag is stuffed full of stuff..you aren't daunted by that ever present 'to do' feeling then?!
