God grant you the light in Christmas, which is faith;
the warmth of Christmas, which is love;
the radiance of Christmas, which is purity;
the righteousness of Christmas, which is justice;
the belief in Christmas, which is truth;
& all of Christmas, which is Christ.

Socks

Finished a pair of socks today I started back in April.  They languished unfinished for several months.  I only had to sew up the toes, but I have a mental block about that.  They only reason they got finished today is I needed the needles for another project   : )

Nice socks and a lovely fire too. We have an enclosed wood burner which isn't so pretty to look at but does power the central heating for the whole house.

They look fantastic! I still haven't figured out how to knit socks, so this is inspiring. Hope your toes are nice and cozy! :D

What pretty socks!! You did a great job there! And the fire looks nice and toasty warm... Has it been cold there? It has been rainy a lot, but not cold cold yet. Big Hugs!

So nice to see you are settling in and knitting which is always good for the soul. I had contacted you sometime back about purchasing wool yardage. Do you still have any for sale? My "work at home" Friday winter project is to work on and hopefully finish a wool braided rug started 20+ years ago. Thanks in advance. Susan
