Hi dear readers,
I am beginning to get quite excited about the upcoming festivities, are you?
I think I love the build up more than anything.
I have been busy gathering gifts for my swap exchange www.sewchet.com organised to exchange a gift on christmas day. Here is a very small snippet of what I have been working on.
www.attic24.typepad.com has set my creativity in motion when I read her recent post regarding sock knitting. I love knitting socks ( even though I am very much a beginner sock knitter) and when I read her post it started that itch off again to knit up some more. I have ordered some scrummy sock yarn Regia Design Line 4 ply - Somethin'else and will be knitting up plain socks. Will show you the wool when it gets delivered.
I have always knitted socks up on 4 dpn's but really fancy knitting two socks up at the same time using the magic loop method. On Ravelry in a beginners knit group there are really good instructions by silvers sock class which I shall have a go at.
I have also had this sock pattern in my ravelry list for a whilehttp://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/honey-badger. I have some lovely purple wool so need to do a sample square soon for this to get my tension right.
This week I bought a couple of christmassy things, one being this lovely Poinsettia.
I also found this really sweet candle with foxes on it.
This afternoon I have been sorting through my craft stuff as I wanted to try and hunt down my purple sock yarn. I really need to start by finishing one project (unless it is super huge like a blanket) before beginning another.
Look at this lot...
One last thing to share with you is this sweet little purchase for my little niece. How adorable are these...
Have a lovely week dear friends xxxxxxx Leah xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
