When I called in at the local craft shop at the weekend I was gifted these two comes of yarn. They are acrylic which I don’t like but for my purpose they were fine.
The wreath is models own, made by my sister in law
I have knitted 7 of these tiny sock decorations, a pattern from Little Cotton Rabbits, which I returned to the shop to be sold for charity or gifted to good customers. Of course I should have thought about doing this months ago not a few days before Christmas, remind me in June to start again as I still have a lot of yarn. I might even make a few more now and do a secret Santa round our building.
This week we visited my brother briefly and safely after negative covid tests to exchanged our gifts. We also saw two of our grand nieces which was lovely even if they got over excited about their parcels and did a lot of squishing. I asked the 11 year old is she was pleased that Emma Raducanu the young teenage tennis player had won the tv sports personality of the year award. No she replied I wanted Tyson Fury to win, if you don’t know he is a heavy weight boxer from the travelling community.
So we are set for Christmas apart from buying food which isn’t a major concern, it will be the two of us as usual so we shall have a piece of beef or I might bake a ham. And it may be time to stop the mince pies. I got on the scales this morning and seem to have added a few pounds, maybe making up for last year’s deficit wasn’t such a good idea
Have a happy and peaceful Christmas, keep safe and well
