A birthday gift and an ornament

Happy Birthday Clare

I hope you've had a lovely day, and received lots of lovely goodies from your family and friends.

I knitted these funky socks for Clare as a birthday gift, i can show you as i know she has received them. I've still got 4 more balls of this lovely wool and DH has requested a pair in the blue, so i guess i had better break out the knitting pins and knit him a bigger pair, you never know i might just try the 4 needle pattern and see if i can do that too.

The monthly ornament i chose for September is A Touch of Holly by Teresa Wentzler, it's from the Dec 1996 issue of Just Cross Stitch and was sent to me by Carol, thanks Carol for sharing this with me. If you scroll a little down on her blog you can see the Christmas Tree version she stitched. It really was a nice design to stitch, there are 4 different ones and i may do another at some time.

Seymore and Rose have sent a lovely postcard from their honeymoon in Dartmoor. They are having a fun time with Barb and her hubby and Ollie the dog.

Happy Stitching and knitting, thanks for visiting
