2010 Christmas Knits

These are some of my Christmas knits from last year. There is no way I'll produce as many as these. As this is also a knitting blog I decided to update my knitting projects. I've not even started any gifts for this Christmas.

Autumn Colours and Reflections

Thought I'd share some gorgeous autumn colours with you. I took an early walk this morning by the canal near where I live. It was a cold frosty morning with sun shining and it was truly beautiful. I love this weather with that lovely autumn crispness and freshness.

The mist was over the water as the sun heated up and the colours here of the trees and the barge reminding me of a Constable painting. This indeed is a real likeness of the colours although it's hard to believe.

Futher on the walk the colours and reflections are so different as the sun is directly shining through the trees. It would be lovely is these scenes could just stay as they are, but of course that's not possible and we would be tired of it, and wanting change.

The berries on this tree are so red and they reflect really strongly in the water.

And here we have a really different colourscape.This is only a 5 minute walk away from the last picture and the colours are so different.

Hello again! I'm back but with some photos this time of flowers in my garden. It's been a very stressful year up to now, and it's been difficult to find time to post on my blog. I realise that I haven't posted since January last. I've been doing lots of knitting. Some good and some not too good at all. However I hope to return to my blog, my knitting and some crafting. Recently I've been having difficulty with my camera, at least I think it's my camera, but I can't justify a new one at the moment and so I was in the garden taking a few macro shots to see if I could improve. Hope to upload some knitting project photos next and keep my blog alive.

There's a hole in my sock!

I've just discovered a Very Large Hole in my handknitted sock and I've no yarn to darn!

Oh I'm so sad and I'll have to knit myself some more. They were not on my list at the moment, but I'll have to put them there!
Anyway even if I did have some yarn, I would not be able to darn a hole that size. When you've knitted yourself something it's really annoying when it wears out. You think you 'll have it forever.
