Catching my tail on Mid-Week Makes'

A bit of a catch up for the last couple of makes in the midst, this week showcased knitting, yes I definitely said knitting!! The lovely art of sock knitting, it can be addictive this going around and around, and using four double pointed needles keeps the mind very occupied. 

This  lovely sock yarn is Wendy - Happy it contains bamboo to let your feet breath.  They will be a Christmas present for my Dad, he has a thing about socks.  Mind you he may only get  one for Christmas and the second for his birthday!!  I have given myself half an hour a day,  but fear it is going to be one of those projects that on Christmas Eve,  I am going to be there frantically knitting in the round with a schooner of sherry at my side!! 

For my next 'Mid-Week Makes' I am in the throws of making myself some fingerless mitts.  It has been on my to do list for 2014, to make myself two crocheted items to wear; one being a cowl and the other some mitts.  I am terrible when choosing colours as I just 'willy nilly' choose away with total disregard for what items are in my wardrobe, so I have decided that multi coloured is the way to go, they will go with everything.  I am using Katia Basic Merino which is so lovely to use and comes in a an array of happy colours.  

I am now in full swing making for my new Christmas Window display, so lots of Christmassy makes in the midst.  Hope you have a good week and keep crafty xx
