Fifth and Sixth of Advent
Happy St Nicholas Day! The joys of childhood illness have made the weekend a bit tough, but the festive spirit is not beaten yet- we're just getting the bugs out of the way early, that's all. Taking a break from meeting the ongoing demand for Union Jack teacosies (!) by knitting these little stockings, from a free pattern on Ravelry. I'm planning on making a half dozen or so to make a garland for our mantlepiece. They knit up gratifyingly quickly (e.g. in an evening in front of 'Strictly Come Dancing'), even when the knitter is struggling to keep her eyes open due to baby-related sleep deprivation!
