It’s been a lovely month of snowy mornings, a rare occurrence here in Devon but becoming less so it seems! That first day was magical and the girls rushed out in their nightclothes to sample the cold, only to come back in to find that the last day of school had been cancelled :)
The run up to Christmas was a little more chaotic than usual with lots of pressie buying and wrapping left to the last minute, still, a bit of pressure never hurt, right?
now dyed a sort of sagey green. I think I preferred the natural but the colour was a request and the recipient very happy, which is what counts.
then of course, we move on to Christmas itself. We were away this year staying with family and we all had a lovely relaxing break, (well, it was for us – not sure about our poor hosts ;)
new toys were played with and introduced to old timers……
and knitting carried on as usual in the background, the comforting feel of needles and yarn accompanying me wherever I found myself.
On a side note, I actually managed to clear a very hip bar/club once, after I got a sock in progress out to show some friends (non knitters, not such a good idea). No place is too cool to knit in, I say!
And on that note and with this very apt last picture, I wish you all a most wonderful , happy, peaceful and prosperous New Year! x
