Hello. It is snowing here and -3*. After a brisk walk in the forest I happened upon my desk, realised it was nearly Wednesday and took a snap. Surely you know what all this is about by now, but just in case you are new or just happened upon this post, click here to find out details and how to join in.
At the back of the desk, looking like a big mess of wool, is my baby snake - ahhh now I feel I guilty, this should be finished and sent by now (eeeeekkkk). Next to that some wool for the sock front left (this is a Christmas present for Grandad). My tin of 'bits'. A big pile of socks, all waiting to be blocked, wrapped and given away. My Denby coffee cup with coffee in to keep me going. Some Christmassy cotton I picked up yesterday to make another dishcloth (not sure if I like it or not!). Centre Stage is my Christmas Stocking. I am so very proud of this. It is being knit on two circular needles and is fair aisle, which I have never done before and I AM LOVING IT. I started it last Friday and I can't put it down, hence everything else is just sitting there. Left is Grandad's sock, coming along nicely. I am actually on the foot part now so will hopefully get it done before the UK posting date. And that's it except if you want to see the Stocking up close or the pile of socks.
Ridiculous - there are fourteen socks there (okay 7 pairs!).
....and my good friends, I leave you with a photo from my forest walk. The floor was amazing, like all the individual leves had been frozen and coated in a dusting of snow. Just lovely.
