That Didn't Last

Image result for oops

Remember how I said I did not have any socks on my needles since last week Thursday.  I changed that yesterday and have a look.

I cast on TAAT (two at a time) toe up magic loop last night.  When my brother passed away, his wife told me how much she was enjoying the bed socks I had made for my mom.  I knew that was a hint that she would like some that fit her a bit better than my mom's did.  

I had a lovely skein of yarn I received as a gift from ruthmckeon over a year ago.  It is Green Elephant hand dyed yarn.  It is 75% superwash Merino and 25% nylon.  I am unable to wear it myself but am enjoying knitting with it.  I know my sister in law will love them and they will keep her feet nice and toasty at night.

I still have not found my advent wreath but made a make-shift one with 4 electric candles.  Hubby and I are not able to remember where we put it last year.  I seldom put it with my Christmas decor since I want it available before all the decor is done.  We finished up the inside decor today and did not find it in any of the boxes.  I went through all the boxes we did not use this year and still not advent wreath.  I am sure it will show up about week 3.

I am just glad to have the decorating completed and now I can sit back and enjoy the rest of the season.

Until next time........................happy crafting!!!!!


  1. Oh, your SIL is going to love her new socks - made especially for her. :)

  2. Love the pretty blue color and your SIL will love them. Too bad about not being about to find your advent. I've not even thought about decorating yet, and you're all done. I'm feeling way behind now.

  3. What a lovely gift! What happened to Ruth BTW....she dropped out of YOP. I can't find my little plastic bulbs that go in my ceramic tree that sits in the window every year...i sthis old age? I wish I was all done but I'm not! You could come over and help me!?!

  4. Love you got a "hint" and how it shows how much your handknitted socks are appreciated.
