If you love knitting and reading and having a peek into what others are doing, then head on over to Ginny’s marvellous blog, Small Things, and check out all the wonderful Yarn Along posts for this week.
This photo was taken yesterday and everything was finished up last night! The blue is a feather and fan cowl knit from handspun merino, cashmere and silk mix which I dyed, carded and spun myself, all a little rustic but quite beautiful and warm. Yet another pair of socks using Poems sock wool, beautifully soft and knitting up well. Both are part of Christmas presents, the cowl will be heading off with another pair of socks to somewhere cold and blustery, so I am certain it will be appreciated! On my Kindle I am reading, or rather have just finished, Bronwyn Parry’s “Darkening Skies” – one of those edge-of-your-seat-who-is-going-to-get-it-next Australian novels. Big body count in this one in a very short period of time, but a wonderful read.
So how is everyone else going with their Christmas preparations?
