…coming to you from under a blanket…
First things first, photos of all the holiday knitting I’ve been keeping secret.
This is for my niece, a miniature version of her very own pet chicken!
And this is for a good Monty Python loving friend of the family! Pattern is a ravelry download that can be found here.
For those not in the know, its featured in the movie ‘The Holy Grail’.
And lastly, advent stockings!
Never. Ever. Again. Ever. That’s five sets of twenty four stockings, that’s a hundred and twenty stockings! I was dreaming of knitting these things! For anyone out there mad enough to attempt their own, the pattern can be found here. From the top, red, white and purple for my niece. Green, white and blue for my nephew. Dark red and sparkly white for my mum. Black and grey for Engel. Red, green and white for me.
Sadly, the hardest part wasn’t the knitting or sewing, but assembling it together. Here is a photo of me trying to do so:
Wool everywhere, stockings everywhere, cat trying to ‘help’…the moment I gave her a sacrificial extra stocking, she lost interest and decided to go play with her catnip mouse instead…
Anyhow, a good festive season has been had so far by myself, Engel and Felix. Engel has actually been festive and put christmas music on yesterday, in the 6/7 years I’ve known him, this is a first! He blames Felix on being the christmas spirit…
How about you guys?
