DH now has his second pair of cosy socks so is very pleased.
My DBro and SIL were attending a function in the city last night and stayed over in a hotel, so they called in on a surprise visit this morning, and a lovely surprise it was too.
SIL asked me how early can you send a request to santa?? She wants to send him a note that she would really love another pair of handknitted socks in her Christmas stocking this year as the ones she had last year are by far the comfiest and cosiest she has. As i told her, you really have to a good girl if you want something special, i wonder if she has been good this year and will get her wish granted LOL
Grand Marquoir was out of the workbox this week again and 3 more motifs have been added, i do love the little owl. Another 3 to go and page 4 will be complete. I'm not sure it's going to be completed by the end of this year as planned, there seems to be some hook and wool that keeps calling to me each evening. The new autumn schedule on the TV has some good programmes i like and i'm finding it harder to concentrate on needle and thread and watch, whereas i can knit or crochet and watch much easier ..... that sounds a terrible excuse doesn't it!
Amy's granny square blanket has a few more rows added to it, blame Strictly and Merlin on TV last night for that. Whilst i was wondering how Matt Baker can dance like he did on week 1 of strictly and trying to stop laughing at DH's comment about Paul Daniels i hooked lots.
A beautiful day yesterday weatherwise, so different to Friday when it persisted down all day and was so cold in the evening. Today was dreadful too, damp and miserable, but as you can see, there are some in this house who seem to have found a nice warm and cosy place to dream their time away.
Just look at Mr Moe's face, it was so funny when he opened up his eyes to look at me just as i pointed the camera at him, i wonder what thoughts were racing through his mind when i took this picture? Midge as you can see is totally deaf when asleep, unless the words 'dinnertime' are being shouted and he's soon wide awake and first in line then, that boy certainly loves his food!
Better sign off, DH is awake himself now after watching the bike racing though the back of his eyelids! Does anyone else have a hubby who can do that? How come as soon as you try to change the TV channel when they are asleep they automatically wake up and say they were watching it, must be a man thing .....
