4 Sleeps

Last week my preparations for Christmas reached critical mass - you know when you go from having some nice outings planned, looking forward to Christmas shopping,  planning some baking and imagining yourself spending a jolly hour wrapping everything up and putting it under the tree - to realising that you're out every single night and then waking up hungover on the one day you have free to do shopping, everything taking hours and hours longer than you thought it would and having every project started but nothing finished?

Yesterday things finally started falling into place, the baking got finished and most of the gifts are now bought and wrapped up. Still though, 4 days to go? Where has December gone? I've taken Thursday and Friday off this week with the aim of having everything wrapped up and ready to go and a clean house to come back to after Christmas.

I've bought the wool to make these Nordic mittens over the Christmas break - The pattern is available as a free download on Ravelry. Search under 'Winter Cottage Mittens' by Dee Bamford.

Good luck to everyone racing round trying to finish their preparations!
