Me and Mr Clicky Needles had a super night out. Thanks for all your lovely comments regarding our attire! We have now both finished work for the Christmas break.
The tree is now up and decorated.
Pink and black again this year.
I'm so pleased with the tree.
It's very bushy which is how I like 'em.
I've discovered fireworks mode on the camera, so here it is at night!
It was my birthday yesterday, so we celebrated with a glass of pink (to match the colour scheme!) fizz. I do love using all of the decorations we have, so spare baubles get piled into vases.
My Mum and Dad came to see us and she gave me this lovely pin and button from Textile Garden.
I'm going to use the button on my Woolfish Jacket. The frog ~ incase you were wondering ~ is a tape measure.
I received my squares for December which was great, but I'm having a bit of a knitting impasse at the moment.
I'm really not sure what to do next. To fill the gap I've cast on a Pimpelliese ~ a triangular scarf with a border. I'm using some Araucania Ranco Multi, a lovely sock yarn which is kettle dyed in Chile. It is more purply than the picture shows.
Despite Mr CN telling me 'less is more' with the decorations, I have gone totally wild so I'll try and get some photos so you can see unfortunately the light has gone for the day now.
A few tidying up jobs to do and a bit of cleaning, but I think we're there!
Now, where's the sherry?
Bye for now ....................Clicky Needles.
