Christmas Favourites 2005

Favourite gifts

An orange bag filled with strange and wonderful goodies my sister sent me. It is going to be my "knitting bag".

Sock yarn!!!!

Bedlinen in an outrageous, lovely, lobster colour.

Favourite music

"Set yourself on fire" from the "Stars". They are based in Montreal and make good music, uhm, that is, we like it!

"...we drove in silence across Pont Champlain..."

Favourite movie

I haven't watched it this year (yet) but ever since it came out "Love actually" is my favourite Christmas movie. It replaced my childhood favourite Three wishes for Cinderella" which I still like to watch once in a while. (Yeah, I know, I am such a girl.)

The "Lord of the Rings" trilogy will be forever lodged in my mind with christmassy feelings, it's a close runner up.

Favourite food

Mary's Santa cookies. They not only taste good but look fantastic. I have no picture because I had only two and they were gobbled up too quickly.

Favourite moment

Yesterday when we played "Cranium" and I couldn't hum "Take on me" by A-HA for the life of me. I just had to laugh so hard, it was impossible to do it!! Well, the time Cerrie guessed "babysitting" correctly when I had just drawn something resembling a face - that's a close second!

Favourite knitting

Ahem, yes, that would be this:

Made on Saturday, it was a gift for Cerrie so it had to be finished on time, no?

And this:

That would be mine. Started yesterday and just finished before dinner. The black one is actually for Rolf.

Talking about an OCD knitter, having to do everything thrice in three days time...

Hi Mona,
thanks for visiting my blog and leaving such a nice comment! And thank you so much for a beautiful sock pattern, it's really well-written and easy to understand, even for a sock-knitting-beginner like me. :-) I can't wait to have mu both socks finished.
take care!
