I’m on a sock knitting mission to knit a pair of 4 ply socks for both granddaughters for Christmas. And then……. my daughter mentioned that she would like a pair too. Don’t know if I can get three pair done in time, but I’m coming along well with the first two pair. I’ve completed a pair for granddaughter number 1 and just started on the pair for the younger granddaughter. No, I’m not showing the socks, they are secret after all, but I’ll show the wool I’m using. The girls have quite different tastes, not that they know exactly what they will be receiving.
I’ve completed the purple, black and grey socks and just started with this colourful yarn
Also, I’ve been looking through my stitchery projects, with three already started and two more traced out I’ve got plenty to keep me busy. Two are for gifts, and this one is for me. It’s a tea towel for the caravan using the iron on transfers from the wonderful Stitcher’s Revolution Camping Adventures series. I haven't got very far with this one, but I’m working on it! So far I’ve done a lake, campfire and trees. There's a caravan in there somewhere.
A little slow stitching
I like these designs so I’m thinking of doing a couple of camping themed embroidered placemats for the caravan too.
So I’ve plenty do do while we are in Lockdown for a few weeks. Our planned caravan trip has been deferred, but Gemma enjoys us being at home, laps to sit on and plenty of cuddles. She certainly keeps us entertained with her antics. Deciding on a change of view she jumped up to the top of the wall unit, we didn’t even see how she managed that. And getting down was no trouble either, jumping down from the top in a single leap.
How did she get up there?
Gemma loves her colourful snakey too. During the day it is usually wrapped around on her cat tower, but at night she pulls it down to play with. And often leaves it in her water bowl – we are not sure if she is offering snakey a drink or trying to drown it!
No, you cant have my snakey, she is saying
