On the Needles

I had hoped to show off the finished Deco this week but I haven't been able to source the clear snaps used for fastening locally so I need to order some online and it hasn't been high enough up the priority list with the Christmas holiday's looming.  Instead here are the projects I currently have on the needles.

First here is my current sock project.  Knit in Regia Stripe yarn using a basic top down pattern, these socks are for Rosie.

I have also cast on a new cardigan, another Kate Davies design - Manu.  I'm also using Wensleydale Long Wool again for this one.

To finish with here are some pictures from the weekend when we took our annual ride on the 'Santa train' at the Middleton Railway, a heritage railway here in Leeds.

what a sweet photo of the children with Santa and Rosie with your DH - a treasure! Love the socks - and a new start WOW - I really should try one of Kate's designs - I love her things but some are a bit intimidating for me. Hope you are enjoying the pre-Christmas busy-ness. Cheers Mel
