Christmas is coming

The Christmas knitting is continuing apace, so much so that I have a certain level of confidence that it all might get done! (Though Dad you might have to watch me knit your socks while we're on holiday, at least they'll fit!)
I'm starting to get excited about Christmas, so I thought I might share a little of my anticipation with you. Thanks to Bloggers post on the date you say feature I'm going to set up a bit of an advent calender on here. What will be in each post will vary, just like the content on this blog, I hope you'll enjoy it.

PS. I've written all the posts in advance, if a picture doesn't appear because it's moved I do apologise.

PPS. Thanks Sam, If any of you want to join me in this that would be lovely, so far I've used video, websites, how-tos recipes and pictures, who knows what else

Yarnanimals posted a link to this video in The Garden shed on Ravelry. I couldn't resist sharing it with you. Unfortunately it's not on Youtube so you need to go look on the BBC site to see it as I can't embed it here.

The reason for the posting silence was yet another weekend away with the uni club. Yes I know I've graduated, but all my friends are still students, and besides it's a good laugh.

There were games

and fireworks

and even some walking (sorry no photos, as usual I took my camera and it never left my rucsac, I'm waiting for someone to upload some on to Facebook!)

There was also some drinking, minibus driving, and a broken leg. However we don't want to go in to details about that, it all worked out ok, and it's a risk we accept when we go climbing.
