HAPPY NEW YEAR 2014
It's Wednesday (somewhere in the World anyway) and time to play along with What's on your Workdesk Wednesday. I have been away for a few weeks. A small break to Montreal, Christmas, New Year, kids off, Huffle off, Mum here from England..... Enough excuses?
So my desk today was a mess as it has not been touched since I wrapped my Christmas presents.
Just rubble which I have now tidied away (does it count as tidying if you put it all in one basket to put away another day?). ........and now it looks like this....
On the left is a hat my Mum (Moo) is knitting. It is a sock monkey hat and it was intended for Smallest but also as a test to see if it is worth making to sell. It won't fit Smallest but I'm sure it will fit one the tinies I know. Next to that are a couple of bags of gorgeous big beads which Moo bought for me to 'tinker' with. A pile of Mollie Makes magazines which Moo brought with her from England. On the right is my new sock. It is a Thrum sock, based on the 'Newfie' mittens of Newfoundland, Canada. Every third stitch on every third row I add a piece of 'Roving'.
My knitting lady says the colours remind her of DrSeuss Horton hears a Hoo
It makes a lovely fleece lining which the more you wear the more it felts down into an almost impenetrable layer.
Believe me, we need them at the moment. We are currently experiencing -35* windchill, have had two Ice Storms, one of which took out our power and water for 50 hours but luckily came back on Christmas Eve and several Frost Quakes since. The weather seems to be crazy everywhere at the moment so I hope everyone stays safe, dry and warm.
Anyway, I am now off to see what everyone else is up to.
P.s. I had a great response to all the Christmas makes I made.
