I hope you all had a lovely festive holiday. We’ve had a wintry few days here in the UK, only ice and rain here on the farm so far, but the snowy weather looks to be turning our way this week, so I’m hoping for at least some by new year. I do love snow.
This Christmas I treated myself to an iPod touch. It’s very shiny and lovely and I can write blog posts on it as well as surf ravelry, check my email and listen to my favorite podcasts.
My inner geek is very happy 🙂
I’ve written part of this post on my new toy, although the picture editing side was done on my laptop as I’m still figuring out how to drive the iPod…
This is a photo of one of several knitted Christmas gifts I made this year.
It’s a set of ten mismatched mittens that I made for my brother from leftover scraps of yarn. He likes wearing mitts for typing on the computer, but he’s always losing them. So I decided to make a set that wouldn’t be spoiled if he lost one or two. But to prevent the mislaid mitts scenario in the first place I also made a ‘mitten dispenser’ to store them in.
It’s like one of those dispenser bags you can get for recycling supermarket carriers, only designed specially for errant mitts. I’m delighted to report that my brother loved his gift!
