|Hat: rescued from the charity shop for £2.50|
Girl: made her myself, priceless
With a week to go until Christmas Eve, the children are incredibly excited. They have been singing songs from the pre-school carol concert on Friday and watching the video clip of My Boy's poetry recital. (Unfortunately there are too many other kids in most of the pictures so I can't share them here.) We have seen one Santa or another for four consecutive days - needless to say they realised it wasn't all the same person, and have sussed that there is in fact a Team of "Santas" at this time of year.
Our Primary school doesn't finish until Friday (!!!) so it's just Little Miss and I at home this week and there is still much to do but we are slowly ticking things off the ever-expanding list, between laughter and cuddles. I've packed up a few parcels ready to post today, the fifth load of drying is in the tumbler and the grocery deliveries are booked until the new year. It's a start.
There are a few crafty things on my list too, the first of which is to block 22 Little Clouds which I think will go nicely with that hat - which incidentally is mine! This is a really cute little knit and worked up quickly even though it needed additional rows after using 4ply for the DK pattern. I'll add a better picture later in the week when it's blocked.... beter add that to the list. But it's finished.
My other YoP Project, February Lady Sweater, needs the second arm to be finished and that will be done too, but you may have noticed that I always slow down when the end is in sight. Not sure why....
