More stash for the Christmas Wool Pile

Brr - it's cold and winter is not even here yet. Yesterday Vicky came for me and we sallied forth to see DKY at Bolton market. I picked up the colours for the men's socks I have planned for Christmas. We met up with Sylvia and Kath and had a coffee in Cafe Nero. I finished the last premature baby blanket and gave it to Vicky for the Bliss appeal. I am going to concentrate now on my Christmas knitting. Charities will have to wait now for a while.

I wasn't going to start any of my Christmas projects until I had finished the purple crochet cardigan but I thought I would make the black shawl as when Buster comes he sheds hair over everything I am knitting or crocheting and I didn't want a Buster hairy black shawl. I am missing him not being here but at least my work isn't hairy. I am making it in Woolcraft Crepe DK which my niece bought from Bury market and it is really nice to crochet with. Quite firm for an acrylic.

Last night I joined Facebook as I seem to miss out on any news and photos that the Kings Arms Knitters post. I just hope that it is not another thing I get dragged into like Ravelry otherwise I will never get anything done!

I need to do a bit of housework today but the windows will have to wait for another time. There is no way I am going outside with wet hands in this weather. There is only me looking out of them anyway and I have learned to ignore the marks.

Vicky has just e mailed me better photos of the Blue Curacao shawl I made a couple of months ago so I will post some tomorrow. She took it on her holidays so you can enjoy a bit of sunshine albeit in photos!
