I'm in full Christmas mode now that school has finished! All the cards have been written and posted, presents wrapped and delivered (well, almost all - more of that later!) and tomorrow I'll be making sausage rolls and mince pies! Mr JK is getting some mulled wine on the go too. We're going to have some when we get back from church this evening. It's the Nine Lessons and Carols service, and I love to go along and join in the carol singing. No matter how many times I hear them, Christmas carols always give me a tingle!
I know that I said that I wasn't going to start any new projects until I'd got some of my long-standing ones out of the way. But I decided that I had to knit a couple of Christmas presents! I'm a huge fan of Anne Hanson's patterns, and last week she tempted me into buying this pattern. I knew that it would be perfect for Charlotte, my teaching assistant, who often suffers from a bad neck. Just the thing for keeping your neck nice and cosy, without the bulk of a scarf. It only used one ball of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino DK too! I think that I'll definitely be knitting more of these.
Nothing much else to show you on the knitting front, I'm afraid. I've got lots of things that need finishing before the Big Day, so I'll be back with a daily post to let you know how I'm getting on. In the meantime, here's this week's Innocent Smoothie Hat of the week, using up the remains of the cashmerino yarn. See you tomorrow, and keep warm! xxx
