Blogmas Day 1 - Time to put the tree up

Blogmas Day 1Hello, I thought it might be fun to blog everyday until Christmas Day.  Christmas is one of my favourite times of the year although I am not a big fan of winter. (We even had some snow yesterday!)

Putting up the decorations We tend to put our decorations up on the 1st December mainly because we have to get the boys advent calendars out of the garage.  Mam knitted these calendars for the boys when they were little. George came straight downstairs to check his calendar this morning, Oliver on the other hand wasn't bothered and didn't eat the chocolate. Oliver is seven and has autism, he is just starting to understand Christmas. He even helped to decorate the Christmas this year, it was a truly magical moment. Totally made my Christmas.

What I am working on This week I have been designing some yoga leg warmers, I have had to pull them out a few times but think I am making progress now.   I am making them using the Stylecraft Head over heels in Etna.  I love this sock yarn, so soft and I love how the colours change.
