I HATE writing Christmas cards, hate it with avengence, so for my work colleagues I came up with another idea
Rudolph cakes which were a very popular and much tastier alternative
The victorian aran weight shawl is coming along nicely, I`m now part way through ball 4 (of 8) and on the third type of lace. DD thinks it looks like a forest of trees, and I can see her point - quite seasonal (or they would be if they were green with tinsel and baubles!)
And because the rows are getting rather long, and I`m still having trouble memorising the pattern I have started a piece of `I-don`t-want-to-have-to-think-about-it` knitting in the form of the babies shawl from February in Elizabeth Zimmermann`s Knitter`s Almanac - though you could be forgiven for thinking that I am knitting a beret!
Just lovely mindless knitting, with the odd yarnover for shaping, so I can chill out when the festivities get a bit much.
Happy Christmas to you all.
