Yesterday Susan came over for crafty Tuesday and we continued on our sock knitting journey. We are on to knitting with our "good" sock yarn and what we hoped would be a pattern for a more refined looking sock. The yarn helps to give a delicate look but sadly this pattern for yet another "basic sock" seems a bit bulky.
Here is where I was yesterday morning.....
and here is where I am now!
Not sure what I was thinking when I chose this colour of yarn? Although it was purchased last summer, I must have been in an autumn mood. That or I was preparing for a Halloween costume as a witch?
In other knitting news, I have been knitting basic garter stitch scarves with this chunky Lion Brand yarn. I knit one for me and this one is for charity.
Lastly, I have been knitting up some vibrantly coloured dishcloths for Lisa. She is my vibrant girl.
I have started doing some Christmas preparations. It will be upon us before we know it. Most of the shopping is finished and I have already started wrapping. Next I will be getting my Christmas cards all signed up. I have decided to do minimal baking this Christmas. I only plan on making gingerbread cookies for Lisa and some special squares for Diane. When I bake, I end up being the one in the family eating most of it as Rob doesn't enjoy baked goods. I am ordering pies for Christmas dinner from my favourite pie shop and picking up some Bliss Bars from Starbucks. Christmas baking made easy! ;)
I'd love to hear how all of your Christmas preparations are coming along!
I have recently picked up some BG "Nordic Holiday"
and some Pink Paislee "Snow Day".
It is calling my name to come and play. I do love me some snowmen. My scrapping mojo might finally be returning. ;) Also, Pink Paislee is starting their 12 Days of Christmas giveaway tomorrow. You may want to check it out for a chance to win some of this fun wintery line. I always enjoy seeing all of the daily inspiration that their DT comes up with.
I'll be back tomorrow with a LO to share for Scrap it With a Song.
Happy Scrapping!! Jen :)
