Christmas is coming

Cold and frosty days really remind you that the inescapable fact that Christmas is coming!

My lovely daughter, a very talented lady in her own right, called me yesterday to borrow a mix of threads, it is so handy being closer again few minutes driving and voilĂ , sure beats hours of driving!!!

The thread was to finish off Eloise's Santa sack...Santa will find them at my house on the night :D *yippeee*

Mean while I made my first crocheted  woolly hat, which Em also took a liking too, (I have since made a second one). I am still working out this knitting lark and have a pattern I would like to do one day, but need to spin the wool for yet, mean while I'm just doing a simple scarf....

The scarf I am knitting, is being done with this, with a little inspiration from something I saw on a shopping trip to York....its got more Alpaca in it so spun up finer and really lovely, if I do say so myself.

One skein of which I sent to some very good friends......;)
