Christmas Eve

A pair of hand knitted socks in rainbow stripes broken up by blue stripes are fitted around sock blockers with the Winwick Mum logo on them.  They're resting on a pale wooden table next to a gold charger plate with green leaves and a white candle on it.  The yarn is Marine Rainbow by The Yarn Badger

The gift socks are finished, the mince pies are in the oven and I’m ready for Christmas.

It’s another strange year for those who celebrate and I hope that you are able to spend the holiday with the people that you love and celebrate in the way you want to.

Whatever you are doing, I wish you peace, joy and love, and the happiest of days.

Merry Christmas! xx

    Merry Christmas to you and your family. The socks look fab, such a cheery combination of colours. Well done on the mince pies and general preparedness; I’ve done all the veg ready for tomorrow (never done that before), so I’m feeling very smug and ready for an afternoon of sock knitting while listening to the festival of nine lessons and carols on radio 4.

    Wishing you and yours a merry and peaceful Christmas and a healthy New year; today my grandson (age 7) asked me to make him some socks…I fear he wants them completed before we return up North so I’ll be doing a lot of knitting this week! Thank you for your inspirational book and blog; socks have been my go-to these last couple of years, still basic stocking stitch but perhaps I’ll try a fancy pattern in 2022!

  28. Julie says:

    Hi Christine! I’m slow getting on the sock bandwagon, but have high hopes for 2022, as I’ve learned to cast on the John Anderson Kilt socks on a very long circular needle and am READY TO LEARN THE TAAT sock knitting skill!! I love learning new skills and this is my 2022 project! Merry Christmas and Peaceful New Year to you and your family! Shirley, Wayne, Mich. USA
