CHRISTMAS IS COMING.....


In that case it's time for a little Christmas pressie for moi, don't you! So here we are, all ready for the Christmas holidays and a little spot of Christmas sock knitting. I've been wanting a lovely pair of bright red socks for a long time, so now is the time.

The yarn is one of my favourites for socks, Hazel Knits Artisan Sock in colourway 'poppy'. I think I'm going to knit a second pair of Anne Hanson's Fishbone Gansey Socks. I love the design and the fit of these.

The second skein, also for socks, is Sweet Georgia's 'tough love sock', in colour way 'mulberry'. Looks like there'll be some cosy toes this winter!


The fantabulous 'Unruly Reindeer' Christmas project bag is another of Michele's wonders from Three Bags Full. An irresistible design, especially as it has a red and white spotty interior!

I made a little more knitting time last week, at the expense of school data collecting, but never mind, there'll be time enough to get it all done this week. So, I steamed ahead to complete the second of the pair of Kim Swingle's Roxy Socks . Love this pattern! Loved the pretty yarn too, but this pair are for the elder Ms Snoop's Chrissie parcel.


Hope she likes them!

We all need presents for us! I have been slowly crocheting myself some socks but have put them on hold to make presents. Looking forward to getting back to them. Hope your last week goes well!

I LOVE your project bag! And what's not to like with those fun socks! I always get myself a gift and it's always craft related! Have a good Christmas.
