Oh Christmas Eve, oh Christmas Eve......

.......I can't believe it's bloody Christmas Eve!!!!!!!!!!!
Well that big day is almost upon us, I'm just about to pack my machine away for a few days so that we can actually all sit around the table, without my poor husband trying to pass it off as a centre piece!
I have accepted that what is not got, can stay not gotten and what is not made, is staying well and truly unmade!
Although I did have a making session yesterday for a bit of selfish sewing and made myself a Festive Sock Sack.
I haven't made any socks in ages and saw that Dani from Little Bobbins was having a Christmas Eve sock cast on, so being the Sheep that I am I had to jump on board too! Baa!!
I used Michael Miller Gnomes for the outer with Clown Stripes in Fire for the casting.
Inside I used a pale blue dot from Makower, a red and pink dot for the tabs and red and white dot for the pocket,  but I used buttons instead of the snaps as I didn't have any.
With robins lining the pocket.
The pattern was so so easy and it even has video's for any tricky bits, the whole thing came together so quickly, I must say a damn lot quicker than the socks will!!!
I've bought myself a skein of Malabrigo Sock Yarn in Lettuce and caked them into two balls all ready to cast on this evening.
And if all goes to plan I should be knitting a pair of Diamond Gansey Socks, from Socks from the Toe Up, with a small glass of fizz....anything more and I will get it all wrong!!!
So, all that is left to do is mop the floors, get the children to bed and to wish all of you a very merry, fun filled and enjoyable Christmas from me and my crazy bunch!!! I
 hope you have an amazing day what ever you are doing!!! I hope you get all your wishes and a bit of crafty goodness too!!! 


  1. Merry Christmas to you and your family and what a great holiday post! Yes, what were all those projects I had going for myself before the Christmas rush came upon us? I adore the sock bag and love your choice of fabrics! I may have to do one of those for sure! Happy Holidays! I hope you get what you wish for!

    1. The gnomes are perfect (although I dearly love the runner-up reindeer!) and I'm going to check out that book! Have a very merry Christmas!

  2. I am LOVING that bag - what a great design - I would never have thought to put a zippy in like that - so cool! Love the gnome fabric - I have some myself :D What are the tabs inside for - needles or ???

  3. Well of course you needed a new bag :oD Hope it was a great day!


I know time is precious, so thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a message xxx
