MERRY CHRISTMAS.....


Well, we're nearly there! Not long now until someone, somewhere in the world will be unwrapping their presses and sharing good times with family and friends. The end of term couldn't come quickly enough for me, but at last I can now catch my breath and enjoy some well earned relaxation. All preparations are miraculously complete, except for some present wrapping, sausage roll making and mulled wine concocting later on this afternoon.



The younger Miss Snoops is already home and Miss Snoops the elder and her husband arrive on Boxing Day. Our son and his wife, with little Sophie arrive on New Years's Eve. So, we have a two week flow of visitors, which will be really lovely.

Knitting has become an all too rare treat these last few busy weeks. I plan to make up for lost time, that's for sure! My 'new baby' blanket has had a few more stripes added.....


......  and I've started 'Potter' from Rowan's new baby knits book. All the patterns use the new DK merino wool and silk mix. It's really soft and is knitting up beautifully so far.


Hopefully, Father Christmas will deliver some little woolly treat to make Snoops Christmas complete!! Ha ha!

Wishing you all a very merry Christmas!
