Festive Knitting and Reading

This week I am really enjoying reading the final Discworld novel by Terry Pratchett. I'm only a few pages in but it's rather gripping! I've been saving it for a while to treat myself, and this is just the right time to dive in.

My first pair of socks are going well, and I have cast on for another pair. This time for my tiddly toddler, a much smaller task! The red swatch is for the boys' bluejay cardis. After the socks I will be more than ready for a l bigger project.

Wishing you all a happy and holy Christmas, and joyful new year.

  2. Love your colour choice for bluejay - I used that same yarn for another sweater for my boys, it knits up lovely.

    1. I know, such a great texture, and colours too! I used it for the lego mittens. Sausages chose the colour, and buttons too!
