Christmas is really coming

With Christmas hot on my heels ,I am in a bit of a panic. So what does a girl do?????? Well, she buys wool of course.I am allowed it is the only way I can cope with trying to get all those bits to come together before it's D Day. I know we will but it doesn't feel like it.
Saturday just gone, I somehow found myself at the IKnit london shop .I have been making granny style slippers (see pic above) for my family and friends.We all have wooden floors in our homes and giving these slipper socks without a bit of liquid latex ,would be like giving everyone an evening invitation at A&E.
So, with liquid latex in hand, you can't just walk out of a yarn shop can you? well, can you??????? So a copy of interweave knits , Designer Knitting mags and a ball of opal and a few balls of Noro later, Mr and I spent a very boozy evening with my cousin with not much crocheting , I,m not stupid Jack Daniels me and a crochet hook are not a pretty sight.


  1. It sounds like a perfectly wonderful afternoon!

  2. LOL, I'm with you there! Intending to sit down with my hook, I decide to have some hot mulled cider with a splash (ok shot) of brandy. It's so good and puts me to sleep in the coziest way. 3 times in the last week. Absolutely no crochet work, no blogging whatsoever. Oh well, 'tis the season :-) I love your Noro. Bought a number of skeins myself and looking for that perfect project...

  3. Hi, I just stopped by to say I am giving you one of the "Stylish Bloggers Award". Here is an explanation of what to do if you wish to accept.
    Thanks so much for the networking opportunity. Hope 2011 is great!
