Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you are all having a lovely time :)
We had a little change of plans this year, I suddenly got quite sick yesterday, probably a virus and I have been miserable. I'm really disappointed because I had promised my mother that I would do all the cooking this year and she ended up doing all of it after all. She is wonderful and I can't thank her enough for making this day a wonderful Christmas after all :)
I always bake something at Christmas, a cake or a pie, it's become a tradition. I really didn't feel like making anything, so I'm glad I bought these:
We've been busy these days and at least I managed to do a few things yesterday morning.
We also started cooking a few things yesterday :) With hindsight, that was an excellent idea!
I got some last minute presents for my parents (although I didn't see my father today as planned) and something for my mother. Her real present is a pair of socks (and more pairs as I knit them!) but I haven't grafted the toes and I don't trust myself to do it with a high fever. It could be a disaster!
Here's my new yarn: a lovely package with glittery snowflakes in the bag with the yarn.
Two skeins of hand dyed sock yarn from Laughing Yaffle.
and Violet Creams
I can't wait to knit with these, they look amazing! And I'll definitely be ordering more yarn from Laughing Yaffle soon. She has some lovely colors.
New socks: knit with Regia Kaffe Fassett Design Line in Exotic Easter. I'm knitting these two at a time and I think this is the cure for my second sock syndrome. Also, it's a lot easier to match up the stripes.
We've been listening to Christmas songs...
My mother made an amazing turkey...
And we watched our favorite movie for this time of year...It's a tradition, we've been watching it every Christmas since I was little. We know every single line. And we laugh every time.
