A very Merry Christmas to you! I am really enjoying this extremely relaxing break from work. I have been knitting and crocheting and winding wool; watching movies and playing board games; and of course, eating yummy Christmas food! It’s been the laziest Christmas we’ve ever had and today we woke up to snow! We don’t often get snow here so it was such a lovely surprise and Cosmo got to experience his first outing in the snow. He wasn’t very keen to go out to the toilet this morning, but after much coaxing and standing outside in my pyjamas, he finally braved it!
Before Christmas Eve, I managed to finish another three of my projects:
Zooming Home for Christmas socks that I cast on on 1st December and was able to wear on Christmas Day…
The long-term Disney castle cross stitch…
And after much faffing, my Tilda Santa…
I’m so pleased to have got these lovely things finished. I have made progress on my Elton cardigan but I haven’t picked up my Cheering socks so I think these will be in the January WiP pile. It’s fine. I’m so happy with the things I did manage to finish and getting all of them done was just an arbitrary goal I’d set myself.
On Christmas Eve, I cast on the Silent Night socks using yarn from West Yorkshire Spinners. I decided to use the free pattern that came with it for the Comet socks. However, I only did 40 rows in pattern as I want to get them finished before the end of the year and I was having a little trouble focusing and watching movies!
I was a very lucky girl for Christmas and got some yarn and knitting books this year. Here are the books I received:
I would like to have a Christmas Box of Socks and currently have 6 pairs, so one of my goals for 2021 is to add to this box and over the next few years, I would like to knit enough to have 31 pairs of Christmas socks to wear through December. I love wearing my handmade socks so much.
I will share some of my other plans for 2021 next week. Until then, I hope you enjoy the rest of 2020 as much as you can xx
