These are part of mum’s christmas presents, a pair of Fetchings knitted with Louisa Harding Grace wool and silk. It really is lovely to knit with.
This is the pair of socks I was working on whilst hubby was in hospital, they are made from Fortissima Socka Mexiko Color 6 ply in colour 0027.
I do like the thickness of these socks and when I get a chance would very much like a pair for myself. At the moment I’m knitting a pair for my Dad’s birthday which is in a few days. Its going to be tight. I was knitting him a cable scarf but I realised that it was going far too slowly for me to stand a chance of meeting the deadline. Also Dad has now got a date for his knee replacement operation, which will be in January, I thought a nice warm pair of socks would be more useful in hospital.
Hubby’s is improving. At last the infection is starting to go down, I can’t actually look at it, its quite gruesome, but at least its going the right way.
Hubby likes to potter in the kitchen and did a fabulous job of cooking Christmas lunch. I realise in this photo what a motley crew we are, I was the only one that dressed for lunch and you can’t see me!!
Lastly, a picture of our Christmas tree with treasures from years gone bye.
