Woyww - a collar and two feet

Today I am joining in with "What's on your workdesk Wednesday" which is the brainchild of Julia at Stamping Ground. For all the information, please go here.

I photographed my desk on Tuesday afternoon after I finished clearing it after a mad 11pm sewing job was needed on our shower curtain (that Grandma grabbed before falling over in the bath! It was ages ago and she is fine). I really should have taken the photo before but I needed to orgainise my knitting so I could see what I was doing.

On the front left is half a collar for my cardigan but I ran out of wool so had to stop. Middle front is my Christmas Stocking, coming along well though I haven't done too much more, just the foot needed now. Front right is Grandad's sock. No1 done, no2 just the foot needed again. In the background is the poor snake and my dishcloth which hasnt really moved since last week.

I think I got round to most who visited me last week but there were still some I coukdn't leave comments on which is annoying but I did visit you I promise.

Right, I have two soups simmering ready for tonight's dinner. Toodlepip x

I can't believe how you crack on with socks, you're like a sock maniac!! Love how the Christmas Stocking is shaping up, it's going to be fabby. I have to admit that after the dentist on Monday I popped in to the yarn store in the same town, must have been the happy drugs lol! But I came back with some stunning lilac wool for a cowl I want to make. Just as soon as I finish those darned cabled socks (which have now gone wrong and need unpicking, grrr).

No linky yet, if it's not up in a few minutes I might be leaving it to you again!

Two soups?? Ah, that reminds me of the classic sketch featuring Victoria Wood and Julie Walters!! I Love going to the volunteer run Cathedral cafe in Winchester. There are many Julie Walters types in there but it's great fun!
Love your socks, you're a virtuoso now :-)
Hugs, LLJ 41 xx

A hand knit Christmas stocking--how awesome is THAT??? Fabulous! It's dreary and cold here today, I was going to put on some soup, too. (Too, but not two.)

Happy WOYWW to you,
