Merry Christmas

I feel incredibly lucky that the current restrictions in Sydney haven’t had a considerable impact on our Christmas day plans. Unfortunately, we were planning on travelling down to Victoria in the New Year. And as there are now border closures in place we need to be patient.

On the upside, I finished my Christmas socks and last night for my Christmas Eve cast on I started a pair of Frasier Fir socks using Wren and Ollie.

Pattern: Vanilla socks with an afterthought heel

Yarn: Must Stash Yarns – A Very Hobbit Christmas

Needle: 2.5mm

I hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday.

December 1st

December 1st marks the day when it is acceptable to watch lame romantic Christmas movies and drink hot chocolate even though it’s now officially Summer. It also starts off the advent calendar season. I didn’t take part in the fun last year. However this year I am joining in with a mini skein advent calendar by Halfbaked hand-dyed yarns. Each day I get treated to a mini skein dyed up to knit up a mini sock in self-striping yarn. I’m looking forward to having my mini sock garland hanging up on Christma morning.

Happy Christmas knitting!
