KNITTING is FUN !!!

Luke's pullover was my first completed knitted project. It was not too hard to knit (phew!) I did get into trouble though as I did not use enough red. But he has worn it twice now and is still intact. I heard him telling his Dad that he likes to wear it as mummy put a lot of hard work into it!

And here is my first sock - I am about to cast on to begin its partner now. Next time I will make the foot slightly smaller - but it is all a learning curve isn't it !
The funny thing is I never thought I would knit! Now I have a cream / beige jacket for me on needles, a pull over for Anna-Kate and another sock! So I am a busy bee.
Greg left for Syria this morning so have to keep busy to keep out of trouble!
Stay well.

The Family Christmas Party.

Here we all are ! Me, Abigail (my sister), Mum, Dad, Tom and Benjamin (my brothers). We had our family Christmas party yesterday as Mum, Dad and Abs are off to Barcelona for Christmas - if the fog behaves !!!

Anna-Kate and Luke having a quick cuddle with Granny before the party began. Luke is wearing the first item of clothing I have knitted. I did get into trouble as it does not have enough red in - as red is the best colour in the world ever - apparently.
Granny is reading a letter from Father Christmas explaining why he had delivered a few presents early....

Here is Luke with his BIG packet FULL of presents. He was a very happy little boy. Plus there were loads of balloons flying around the room.
Luke loves his fort - here he is re-enacting various battles.
