Time is running away

Well time really goes fast at this time of year with Carols to go and play as well as the prep for Christmas parties and feasts. Our lights are up and I do have some new additions that are yet to be photographed. But it also signals its show time just around the corner.
Show time means a carousel of projects. I have coat hangers done and a suitable jumper for one show. So UFO's include a pink jumper, a cream cardi, a tea cosy, a baby set and a scarf.
This week maybe get as much scarf done. I am knitting the Raha scarf from Nancy Bush's well researched Knitted lace in Estonia. It is possible that my Great Grandmother may have knitted these patterns. So there is this weeks focus with a mint baby set as well. Yes I knit on Christmas Day as I need something to pass the time when nothing happens. I am working also.
So I will get back to photos after I get back on track properly.
Have a safe and Happy Christmas.

Day is done... gone the sun... out the needles... on the show stuff...get it done....

Well despite I needed to go and get landscapes for Dapto shows photography sections I need to get a big wriggle on on the show knitting. I Have things starting to arrive so items can be made and the tea cosy is in my mind and starting to flow to the needles.

So a quick look at some Christmas lights at the famous Porter Ave Mt Warrigal and Ill get back to it and try to churn thigs out.
