Finished: Diagonal Cross Rib Socks from Favourite Socks in Lorna's Laces Tuscany knitted on 3mm and 2.5mm needles rather then the given needles to make them slightly smaller for my large but girl sized feet.
The pattern is fantastic if you have beautiful coloured yarn that you want to show off without just doing a plain sock - smiles all round:
And now the chicken is stuffed (to Great-Grannie's receipe), the mince pies and cookies are made, the fruit cake is decorated (I abdicated on both the making and icing and left all that to Marks and Spencer); and the main Christmas cake.....? Well it looks a bit like this:
The Good Lord created many wonderful things - I am particularly grateful for Williams-Sonoma!
May the joy of the angels
The eagerness of the shepherds
The perserverance of the magi
The obedience of Mary and Joseph
and the peace of the Christ-child
be yours this Christmas
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL, AND TO ALL, A GOOD NIGHT!!!
