Hello there! I'm sorry that I didn't manage to post on Sunday evening as usual. On Saturday all of our family arrived, with Scott and little Sophie too. As you can imagine life has been very hectic in the Snoppydog household. I did feel I needed to pop in and say 'hello' to you all, however briefly. Do you like the reindeer card? My class made them for their families. Rather cute, I thought!

This scrummy yarn arrived from Great Northern Yarns on Wednesday. It's a mixture of  70% mink and 30% cashmere. I'm hoping to make Anne Hanson's Infinity Monkey Bread Scarf. No sooner had this delicious little package arrived than the December Knitspot Club yarn dropped through the letterbox. Guess what? It was another skein of the same yarn. HOORAY!

Isn't that colour just gorgeous! The pattern to make a lovely keyhole scarf and mitts set was released on Saturday. I can't wait to get started.

I'm desperately trying to finish the hat that I started for Mr Snoops last weekend. He's not a geat fan of presents and so far, his little stocking doesn't have a great deal to go in it. The pattern and yarn were the Knitspot October offerings.

Here's hoping it will fit, as it's looking a little on the small side at the moment. He'll have to wait until after Christmas for the scarf.

I know this has been a rather short visit, but I am on an imporatnt mission this morning. We are off to sort out bridesmaid's dresses for little Sophie and the younger Miss Snoops, in readiness for the elder Miss Snoop's wedding next Easter. Not the most ideal time to be doing it, but there may not be many more occasions when we are all together before the big event.

So I'm going to have to love you and leave you. I'll try to pop in again before the weekend, to show you the finished hat.

Wishing you lots of Christmas fun!

The reindeer card is very cute. I shall have to remember it for next year! I LOVE the club yarn and am very frustrated that mine hasn't come yet! Have a lovely time with all the family! xx

Sarah said...

It all sounds very busy but fun! I hope you get it all done on time. The yarn you got in the post is lovely colours. I like that blue especially.
I have not blogged since last Wednesday! It has been very busy since then with various things and I just don't have any energy. Today is work day-planning, transfering my assessments to the computer, timetabling-all most time consuming! Ah well, once it is out the way I will be happy!
Have a lovely week and find some knitting time!
