Hello Everyone, how are you All doing? I hope you are well and remaining sane in the run up to Christmas. I seem to be on track thankfully, with Damian working from home last week it meant I had time to catch up with things at home, and shopping. I even managed to get some parcels wrapped up, but my sellotape wasn't sticking so had to call a halt till I bought new sellotape. These things are sent to try us, lol.
Thank you all so much for your visits and kind comments on my last card, I know how much time it all takes so it's all very much appreciated.
I'm sharing some of my knitting today,
These socks are for Damian, and the colours just happen to match his Football Team, Glasgow Rangers so, I expect they well go down well. Yarn used is by Arne and Carlos.
More socks made for a friend in fabulous Noro Kueryon sock yarn, a fabulous slubby yarn and knits up so well.
A cowl for Moreen, The Fisherman's Wife Cabled pattern, knitted in Stylecraft Chunky yarn. Knitted on size 10mm pins, and although it's a lovely piece I hat knitting with such large pins and thick yarn, I much prefer 3or 4 ply.
Now as some of you know I was taking part in the Carolthon with the Choral Society today,
Here is the only photo that Alistair took that turned out, battery ran out, so unfortunately, he has not captured the whole group, there are around 25 of us, anyway, here I am with my choir buddy Fiona. There was a good buzz in the shopping centre, so I hope we collected lots for our chosen charity.
We have a break now until January when we will start to practise for our Spring concert.
I was soooo tired this afternoon, I could hardly keep my eyes open, I had made a start on commenting and realised that I'd dozed off when my laptop landed on the floor. I had to go and lie down, now that is not like me, I did sleep though with Teallach beside me, and Alistair made the dinner. I have been so incredibly tired lately, not sleeping well at all, can't think why really, perhaps one just has phases like that. Best not to worry about it though, just go with the flow, but I felt it such a wast of time going to bed in the afternoon.
Anyway, that's all from me tonight, my card making is all but stopped for present, just Alistair's card to do and I'll have a go at making some tags for the gifts. so until next time, enjoy your weekend and take care of yourselves,
