See- I have been making stuff....

I am in the midst of Chistmas present creativity - see! As I have been stuck in the house for a couple of weeks with this bronchitus thing - which has finally seen fit to leave - yay! Rather than waste the time, I have been knitting. I'm aiming for a pressie a week, and so far have managed it. Just remember, none of them have yet been washed and blocked, thought I would leave that until I could stand up-right (wrestled the dog last week & lost, back now in spasm... Never rains, but it pisses down!!). The latest mittens are directly below. I have learned a lot from knitting them and really am looking forward to the next pair (did I mention I was missing colourwork...). But I think another couple of pairs of socks this week would probably be a good idea. Hmmmmm, two pairs in one week, it's a challenge. I really am looking forward to next week, when I should be well enough to be off down to the workshop for a couple of hours at a time if nothing else. In the mean time.... thockies!!

The blue ones....
Lana Grossa Meilenweit Mega Boots Stretch. Fabulous stuff to work with and to wear afterwards. I tend to collect balls of it across the year to knit for christmas.

Oh, lordy, I've just read this back, I must be mad!!!
