I'm knitting some woolly socks for my sister because she lives in a cold house (rented). That's it for my Christmas knitting projects. I'm such a slow knitter I don't think I can commit to anything else!

Hi Millie

I'd love to be able to do socks but I just cannot get the heel part. I've tried so many times and have given up for now! However, I bought a big sock knitting book about a year ago so might have to look at that in the new year if the weather tuns really cold.

Hi Sara

I remember my grandmother knitting scarves for me for Christmas and birthdays. It was always in k2p2 rib. I now know how long and involved it is to do that much rib and I wish I had appreciated her more for knitting them for me.

Martin's granny was an amazing knitter - she could do proper fairisle in all the primary colours from memory and without a pattern!
