Winter woolies

The climate "up North" can sometimes leave a little to be desired in the winter, the cold is not cold as in seriously below freezing for days on end, but the sort of cold that creeps in to your bones! In weather like this what could be better than these-
Finished Nether Garments
Hand knitted using 75% wool, 25% nylon, wonderfully soft, machine washable and super cosy!
These were my project for this years Tour de France knitalong, 2 months after starting they're finished, and I think they're wonderful, the waist just needs a little elastic to make sure they don't fall down!
They were knitted using The Yarn Yard Bonny dyed in special tour de france colourway and scraps that people very kindly sent to me. I have lots of scraps left so am planning on passing the love by making something special and letting you lot have chance to win said object. More on that later, I've got some other stuff I want to get done first. Keep checking back though if you don't want to miss out.

I'm going to whisper this for fear of jinxing this, but I love my school, the staff are all wonderful, and even the Year 10s who I taught in my first ever lesson are no where near as bad as I feared. I'm going round doing all the things I need to do, like get keys, sort out computer passwords and wonder why my school email refuses to work...
Tomorrow I actually have to teach 3 lessons, and I get to meet my little Year 7s for the first time.
So basically saying nothing to report, all is going well, long may it continue.

PS. I love my job!
