Christmas is coming.

I made a start on my SSCS gift, but no pictures yet, sorry.
This year as a part of the swap we also have to make a Christmas ornament, something suitable to hang on a tree. Thinking about that led me to thinking about not only the swap, but also gifts for others. This morning I went digging about in my drawer and pulled out all my Christmas fabrics.
I also had a dig about in my scraps box and pulled out any likely looking scraps too. I've got something planned, whirling around in my head, now I just need to let it out. Time to play.
As well as Christmas gifts and swaps I've also made a start on some knitting. DS Joe is getting a new jumper. He is growing so fast!
He loves the Aran style, so I've set off on a very simple sweater for him, no fancy cables this time, just a fancy rib. The way the weather is here I figure the sooner it is finished the better.
That's it really, that's all my news. I'm off to play.

I love that yarn, it looks very similar to what I have used for DS2. Having the fabric out certainly does help to get ideas into your mind

Joe will be nice and snug when you get his jumper finished,and, knowing you, it won't take too long either.

I'm intrigued with what you will make with your Christmassy fabrics.

I just had the most perfect summer day, I don't WANT to hear about Christmas yet, lol! But you're right and I should get busy. Can't wait to see what you come up with!

I'm glad to see you're doing this swap - it's a fun one. I'm sure Joe's jumper will be fab!!
