December marches on relentlessly. At school our first nativity has taken place, another tomorrow night. I am getting a bit Christmassy but as yet, we haven't got any decorations or the tree up. This will happen later on in the week when Mr Clicky has a day off work.
The advent candle is disappearing, though if I'm completely honest, I don't always remember to burn it every day.
We have been into Cheltenham, the Municipal Offices looked rather splendid.
We've also done some Christmas shopping. Mr Clicky was looking for a decoration for his desk at work and we found a suitable snowman. Obviously I had to knit him a new scarf.
Now, I'm not sure about you but I think he looks a bit cheerier with this stripy little number.
Ridiculously I loved making this. Just a nice bit of garter stitch.
Mr Clicky asked me to make something 'Christmassy but discreet' for one of his work's Christmas Meals. I had a trawl through Pinterest and (several hours later) came up with a crochet Rudolph broach. I am quite pleased with him. The pattern is here if you're interested.
Of course, Christmas cards have been dropping on the doorstep, the usual collection of robins and trees. A few have been more unusual, like this one, a sprout wreath.
I've been making two pressies for my colleagues using these pretty fat quarters but more about that in my next post.
Righto, I must get off now and write some cards!
See you soon.......Clicky Needles.
