Wooly scarves and cute teddies

During the day I am a hive of activity, working on my secret Christmas makes. But during the evenings, when everyone's home, I'm back working on the usual projects. To make the evenings a little more interesting, I've started a new project! Using yarn leftover from my Paisley jacket (James C. Brett Marble chunky) I'm making a lovely warm scarf.

The pattern is Haven by Kim Hargreaves from Heartfelt. I only started it last night but I'm a quarter of the way through already. It's a nice easy pattern to follow and with The Grand Slam of Darts on the television, I had plenty of time to knit.

At the weekend Eve and I went into Liverpool. She needed to buy a sewing pattern for her project in school and I 'needed' to buy more wool! I didn't go mad - just an assortment of balls for my Christmas projects. I did however spot a great new book, Knitted Bears by Claire Garland.

The bears are so cute, it's all I can do to stop myself forgetting everything else and making them all. I shall have to restrain myself until after Christmas - the list of things to do gets ever longer!!
