tick!

At last, I have ticked the first present off my list. A cowl knitted for my aunt in this lovely wool. It feels quite luxurious and has a subtle sheen from the silk content. So, progress has been made, and that's a relief.

The socks (actually, let's be honest, sock one) are coming along. A touch of indecision about the heel has been replaced by the start of an afterthought heel, after all. This has helped me on my way. And I'm rubbing my hands with glee to think I don't have to turn the heel in quite the same way as before.

Other things today - a burst of the midday sun. Always so uplifting.


Can you see that little wired decoration just catching the light? That was the finishing touch on my present from Pipany. Just beautiful.

Card stock and envelopes have arrived. Tick!

My daily blogging seems to be going more smoothly than my christmas preparations....

And now to make you smile.
