2 days to go..

and nativity is coming along nicely. Mary, Joseph and Jesus are knitted, just need minor surgery to attach arms and hands. Hopefully I will post pics by 25th

Knitting has been slow this week due to my kids generously sharing their cold germs with me, think I got 2 sets of germs as was just getting over the cold when another one came.
I am now concentrating on knitting gloves and scarves, we had a frosty week and have loads of gloves, sadly not many pairs so going to sort out the mismatched ones and knit new sets.

bye bye NOvember

Yes, I completed NOvember, no new projects cast on last month at all, though very little finished, (bayerische and gloves and scarf to match the dinosaur hat), just closer to finishing 2 shawls and a cardi. I am going to cast on something new soon, going to knit a nativity, I have been thinking about doing one for at least 20 years but now have loads of leftovers to use. Still deciding which pattern to use, Jean Greenhowe or one from Simply kintting last year but have decided that this is the year it gets made. Hoping to get at least Mary, Joseph and Jesus done so watch this space.
