Knitting


It feels like I have been in a knitting frenzy these past few weeks.  I had to finish off certain projects by the end of this week to deliver them ready for Christmas.  I have managed to finish most of them they are waiting, wrapped up, for when we travel south to family tomorrow.  When you spend time and energy creating something it can feel strange wrapping it up to give to someone else can't it?  Maybe it is just me but it feels like you giving a little bit of yourself a way, which I suppose it is!  I will share pictures later in the week.  The slippers are still waiting for a sole, I was going to sew on leather but I have abandoned those plans I have two more ideas which I am going to investigate today when I pop into our local town I will let you know how I get on....

...meanwhile I am still knitting slippers...

I am loving the wool for this pair, beautiful greens, it was really hard to get a good picture this morning in the November gloom, it goes rather well with my reading matter this week don't you think?  I have this one and it's pair to knit, along with one more pair and an a half and that is all my Christmas knitting left to do!  Hopefully I won't be knitting on the way to our new year gathering with friends like last year.

I am still reading Woodsman by Ben Law, rather slowly at the moment with all the knitty distractions.

Joining in with Tami and Ginny for sharing of all things yarny.

  1. Great green color. Hope you get it all done in time! Puppy got hold of my lace fern knit this morning - managed to get it off of him with out and rips - could have been very messy. It's for my aunt of christmas so I'd have to finish it asap to get it mailed to the UK. Enjoy your visit with your family.

  5. I know what you mean about giving away things you have made. They are very special to receive though.

  6. I know exactly what you mean - I did some Christmas wrapping this morning and it felt weird wrapping things I'd spent hours making. We just have to hope they will be well received on the day... That yarn is the most perfect shade of green, I love it. x
