So what better way to spend a cold dark evening than with a choice of new wool?
I took a little trip to the wool shop looking for wool for making Christmas presents. I came back with some more Mirasol Miski (top of the pile in the guise of a half finished scarf), some Debbie Bliss for fingerless mitts (bright pink), some Debbie Bliss silk (pink skein, for nothing in particular, just 'cos I liked it!), some beautiful Chilean Araucania hanks - camel and silk mix (purple, grey, green mix) and some 100% Merino (purple) - all for scarves.
I'm really enjoying my knitting but do like to mix it up with a bit of crochet, making some 9 round grannies with the leftovers and Sunday afternoons are currently devoted to sewing with my sister. We had quite a family affair going on with Mum involved too. More on that in a later post nearer the time of the grand reveal although some of our makes can already be found on Anne's website. I don't think we'd make much on a piece rate but it's a lovely way to spend an afternoon.
No more photos today - youngest son had to go out at midnight to buy the latest X-Box game that has just come out and I don't think my nerves can face the possibility of an all out tizzy turn as my uploading interferes with his game! Oh, the joys of parenting teenagers.
Hoping you are all keeping warm and well.
