Changes here

These socks are finished, they are the last pair I needed to make for gifts, again it's for a large men's shoe size. I will knit another pair of socks, but these  are not for a Christmas present.
 Two Christmas cakes, the one in the front has just had another drink of brandy, the one at the back is covered in marzipan, this cake had less brandy, so Will can eat it. I will marzipan mine in early December. 
 Just to show the shades, they are so pretty, I have done more to this. 
 Hubby went out and won a couple of raffle prize's, the tree I will keep for our downstairs bathroom, I will give Will the Santa. 
My brother drove home to Somerset on Friday, it was a long slow and very wet journey, but he now has a couple of days at home before he is back to his part time work on Monday.  I did the cakes on Friday afternoon, it was just too dull and wet to go anywhere, I finished the socks in the evening, I unpicked back until I reached the dropped stitch and then worked carefully until the end, I had very little yarn left over, so I was pleased with them.
Will came over at tea time for a sleepover, mummy went into natural labour in the afternoon and baby George is born, no photos as yet, but we are very happy at the arrival of our 7th grandson.
This morning is an early start, Will is always awake at 6am, not a time I am normally awake. Mummy and George will be home today, we have offered to keep Will for another night if they want time together, but I can't wait for a cuddle.


  1. Oh, how exciting. Many congratulations to all concerned. Enjoy your baby cuddles, looking forward to some photos.
