Good Morning Bloggers,
This morning we have no rain !…I know shock isn’t it lol, we’ve got some frost and even had a touch of snow the other day which caused great excitement in the children.
With a week to go to Christmas I’ve been up late trying to get things finished and ready for gifts.
Last week you’ll remember I’d just started the Ravenclaw scarf and had only a stripe and a half done, well this week I can tell you that it is finished down to just needing its fringing…yayyyyyyy am so delighted, it took many late nights but its done ! 🙂 and it still has not been seen !
Here it is
You’ll also remember the debate as to whether I knit some headscarves for Caoimhe and just cast on her Hufflepuff scarf well with having finished the Ravenclaw scarf in record time (not even a week! ) I decided I’d carry on with my original idea of doing the Hufflepuff scarf and I cast it on. This is the progress so far.
Needless to say the aim is to have this finished and leave enough time to fringe the four scarves and wrap them up !
The other thing I was working on was some dishcloth sets.
I also finished the circle cloth I was working on and now have that set complete. I like these but had a bit of a love hate thing going on with them while knitting them. Perhaps that’s why I didn’t knit them up so quick !
This is the link for the Circle Cloth

|I cast on my next cloth which I’m enjoying as its got some lace going on in it and I love lace and knitting it, again probably why I’m half way through the first one ! I chose this nice bright cheery yellow and its partner shall be in green, very spring like colours but that’s what appealed to me when I opened my cotton tub.

I’m hoping by next week I’ll have this set finished and the scarves and that will complete the gift knitting. I’ll be thinking about what I’m going to move onto next on my list, something with a bit of pattern perhaps just to break up the monotony of what has been just a knit stitch constantly.
I’d like to wish all my knitty bloggers a very Happy and Peaceful Christmas.
