The Christmas Season is upon us, in honour of which my
beautiful granddaughter plucked the stars from heaven to
create this splendid Advent wreath which gives us all great joy.
Apart from catching possums which came down the chimney
like Santa into our house on the mountain and needed to be
evicted on a couple of occasions, my time has been taken up by
speed knitting a queen sized blanket.
Here it is being tried on for size on our bed.
My No.1 granddaughter has been wishing for one for some time
and since she has just attained her honours degree in mathematics
with first class honours, it was fitting that I finally sit down no
matter how hard it was on my hands, and knit her one from
the lovely lustre wool off our own Leicester sheep. The wool was
commercially spun and hand dyed by her mother and knitted by
her grandmother. If that does not keep her warm as toast, I don't
know what will.
Finally finished! Now maybe I will find some time to visit
some of my bloggy friends again, at least when my hands
recover enough to write comments as well.
At last I feel that I have achieved something this week.
