Countdown to Christmas

Advent week 1 004
Hello there! I can't believe that it's Advent Sunday today. Christmas seems to have crept up on me all of a sudden! There's still presents to buy and wrap, decorations to be brought down from the loft, Christmas food to prepare and of course, all the cards to write! I thought I was being organised when I bought my cards a few weeks ago, but I somehow can't bring myself to write Christmas cards before the beginning of December. It just doesn't feel right!
I have done some knitting this week, mostly on the second Fishbone Gansey sock. The trouble is, I just don't seem to have found time when there was enough decent light to take photos. By the time I get home from work, it's hopeless! I know, Bad Blogger josiekitten! I will try harder for next week! Mr JK and I are off to Liverpool for the weekend, so I may well not blog until Monday. I'm looking forward to the trip - I've only been to Liverpool once, many, many years ago, and I think it's changed a lot since then. I wonder if there are any yarn stores there?! Must do my homework before we go! Have a good week and I'll see you soon! xxx

I know what you mean about the poor light. I'm now having to wait until the weekends to take my photos.

I love Liverpool, I went to uni there and it's my husband's home town so we visit often to spend time with his parents. Sadly it's a bit lacking in the yarn shop department though there is one in town and of course there's yarn in John Lewis :) I hope you have a good time there, if you've not been for a while you'll be surprised at the changes, they're pretty impressive. It's so different to when I went to uni there and that was only 6 years ago!

I really love your latest handspun yarn. I am sure Mr. JK will be very pleased with his German socks ;-)
Have a good weekend! Can't wait to see your latest knitting.
Yours, Julia

It's scary that it's December again already! Know what you mean about the light - there's about a two hour window at midday when I can photograph yarn. Argh! Absolutely love your spinning below - the colours are just gorgeous, great idea to N ply it :) xx

Glad to hear I'm not the only one in denial about Christmas and failing to blog.
