Our social calendar has been quite full this week, more next week aswell. Most unusual for December in Yorkie land.

So my knitting has been confined to trains and therefore socks, just for a change. Recently I have been asked on 3 separate occasions what I was knitting. once by a 5ish year old, once by the Turkish gentleman train guard and once by a Spanish chap. Both men said they liked to see sock knitting because their mothers used to do it. Wonders will never cease.

Forest Canopy

Yarn: Yarn Yard Sock club.

So the Christmas knitting has slowed somewhat, I don't think this was helped by the fact that I've almost knit myself 3 scarves in the meantime.

Debbie Bliss Cable and Lace scarf from Pure Cashmere.
Yarn: Wensleydale Longwool Aran

What I am itching to do is mitts, not gloves because the fingers drive me mad.
This is not helped by this gorgeous arrival.
Yarn Yard Glove club yarn, just delicious.

Finally here's a giggle for you, my Camper shoes bought from the outlet in Majorca. Don't know why they were reduced. There are many theories mainly regarding the tadpoles. I will say no more and hope none of you understand this or you will stop reading my blog!

Out to lunch at The Grand (Eastbourne) tomorrow.

Have a lovely Christmas shopping free weekend.
