Woyww - a roving

I am joining in with Whats on your Workdesk Wednesday? That means it is Wednesday (in the UK) and people all over the World post photos of their crafty desks. It is very inspirational and quite amazing how many very talented people there are out there in the big world.

My desk.....

On the left is a new sock I made in just two days and it is for me to wear in my snow boots. I needed something think and warm and the cosy work sock was just the thing, plus I can make this one in my sleep now. My boots and black and cream and white so they should go very well. I haven't started the second one yet as I have found a new project to start. I have been asked to crochet a Monkey hat for a child. Watch this space (hopefully).

At the back is green wool and some blue stuff in a bag. This is for my new sock project. It is a thrummed sock and uses a fleece roving in between stitiches to create an almost fleecey lining. They look lovely but I need to go to the technical day for this so will not be knitting past the rib for this one yet.

Next to the green wool is Leftover Leo waiting to be wrapped for Christmas and on the left is my Christmas Stocking that actually looks better now I have blocked it. All handmade presnts have been wrapped and sent apart from the ones for this house. And that's me for today. I apologise for my lateness in replying and commenting on last weeks post. I don't know where the time went.
