(Of socks, no filth on this blog!) Oh yes, I regained my knitting mojo and finished the other sock. I’ll be honest and say trying to create 2 identical things is actually quite tricky and at times frustrating. Sock #2 was on a lifeline for over a week as I couldn’t bring myself to start…… Continue reading What a lovely Pair!
These weeks to Christmas seem to be flying by, but luckily this week I have managed to do a bit of crafting amongst other things. The advent calendar is coming along nicely.

It was possibly one of my crazier crazy…… Continue reading The Non Avengers Party
