There hasn't been much in the way of knitting done around here lately because I've had a cold. I won't bore you with the details.
I did manage to put the Christmas tree up before the germs kicked in. Here it is in all it's loveliness, I've never had a real tree before, and it's just lovely! I've hung the decorations that I made, and everybody thinks they're great!.Mr Blackbeard and I put it up last Saturday while watching Ice Cold in Alex. I hadn't seen that film for years, and had forgotten how brilliant it is.
I was hoping to have my blanket finished, but t'was not to be. I picked it up again on Friday, and here is how it's looking: There are supposed to be three bands of the lighter colour around the edge, but I think I'll do four. It should (hopefully) be finished really soon, so I'll post lots of photos then.
We still have snow, it arrived on Thursday evening. There are 5 inches of the horrible stuff at my house. I am completely fed up with it. Hope it's not too bad where you are, and you're keeping warm,
