Lacy Snood

Well it's 'proper' name is Old Shale Smoke Ring.
Love it and easy to make on circular needles.

Christmas presents

All my presents are wrapped and under the tree. Sorry can't post pictures until after Christmas. All I have to do now is have my hair cut - tomorrow - and buy all the fresh veg. Last minute clear up and we're ready to go. I hope everyone is enjoying the snow, we had a fresh load this afternoon. I hope it doesn't effect anyone's travel plans.

As well as restarting my blogging, I have also opened a Blipfoto account which allows you to post one photo a day - thanks to Helen C. I only have two photos there so far, one for yesterday and one for today. You can see them at Gandalfstitcher's Journal you can flip between photos on the calendar.

Buzy Bee

Yes I've been quite buzy knitting recently.

First a bag I've just felted although I knitted it a while ago. 

Then a hat I've just completed but it looks awful on me. 

The last bag is one I crocheted quite a long time ago.

My Red Christmas Tree

I thought you might like to see my tree this year.

Above are my twigs which stay up all year but are decorated for the festive season with this years hand made baubles, felt birds and beaded stars


Here are some pictures of a Citron Scarf I've knitted for myself.

It's really warm when wrapped around the neck and tucked into my coat.

More snow

Well the snow has caught up with us in the NE - with a vengence! The snow is still falling.

New Snow

Well we had just got rid of the last lot of snow and today we had some more. It didn't last long but the forcast says there is going to be more. There may just be snow for Christmas! This afternoon the sun came out but the house is really cold. 
I hope you are all having a good time and that Christmas is going to be a good time for you all.

Prague in the snow

So sorry I have been away for such a long time, nothing much to say I'm afraid.
Just come back from Prague to see the Christmas markets. We nearly got stuck because of the snow but all went well and  got home safe and sound. Photos can be seen on my webshot album.
