|Six days to go!|
I'm starting to get really excited about Christmas now. We're on the final string of the advent calendar, just five more ornaments to come out of the box. I bought the chocolate decorations on Saturday and they are now hanging in their proper place on the tree. Even Fidget is getting into the Christmas spirit.
|This is as close to clothing on cats as I will go.|
The tree has created its own problems though. I cannot access my stash shelves without serious risk of tree-related injury. I have had to be creative, and find an alternative place to keep all my active WIPs so they remain accessible.
|There is a very handy space between the cushions and the wall,|
now stuffed full of acrylics for my granny blanket.
There are four WIPs nestled in that space. The granny blanket, obviously, but if you look closer you may also spot Jamie's hat, a second pair of Saartje's booties and my latest cast on - the ribbed lace bolero. Now, when I find myself sat on the sofa in front of the TV, I can just reach up behind me and grab something to keep my hands occupied.
|Fidget remains unmoved by the proximity of yarn. This is good.|
It's another one from my Year of Projects list, and I've been itching to get started on it ever since I acquired the perfect yarn. You see, a fellow Raveller was having a destash, and one of the items on the list was five balls of Rowan Calmer in black, for a wonderfully cheap price of £15 for the lot, including postage. Mooncalf alerted me to its existence, so I bought it to prevent her from breaking her yarn buying ban. It is lovely yarn! I just hope I've got enough. I'm sure I have, but you never know!
