For once I am on top of Christmas in advance. My knitting book arrived today, and with some coaching (thanks for the offers, Emma and Jasmine, I’ll see you soon!) you will all surely receive knitted scarves and cushions. If you strike really lucky, you may even get something advanced like a hat or a tea-cosy.
My personal ambition is to be able to knit the perfect hand bag. Unfortunately the beautiful green Jaeger one I saw advertised the other day has not a hint of yarn about it.
Apologies in advance if this has blown the surprise, or if the finished result is a bit scratchy. If it is, I promise I’ll go back to the chocolate cake, both as presents and personal solace.
