Countdown to Christmas

My goodness it's only 13 days until Christmas.
Have to say this year is a little different, we have had family coming all month.

My middle daughter and her family have been here already and  my oldest brother and wife will be here this weekend. Then next weekend my other daughters will be here.  

Everyone is here to share Christmas with Mom. She now has hospice and we all want to make the most of what time she has left here on earth.

Needless to say my time for a while now has been away from home and such but I have been taking still small hand projects to take with me when out on appointments and visits.

I started a pair of advent socks

It's been a few years since I've knitted some socks.

I debated whether I would use double pointed needles or circular needles and I went with the DP needles. And have no regrets.
I have missed knitting and I am taking it slow so my wrist doesn't act up.

I had already knitted 2 cowls. 

One for me

and the other for my youngest daughter 

Love the feel of the yarn, it's like rabbit fur, so soft.

I'm also still weaving on the latest set of dish towels and I'll get more into these in the next post.

Plus I want to share what I'm reading right now and it's a change for me and a fun read.

I learned about this book on Diane in Denmark's channel. She like me loves mysteries. Just couldn't resist reading this.

Has some very well know writers to pick from.

I feel that I will have a little more time to write in the future and look forward to sharing here again.

Until then,
take care


  1. Very interesting yarn you have to knit those socks out of!

    1. It was yarn I had laying around but the label was gone. I too would like to know more.
      I’ll be sharing progress. Thank you


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
