Happy Christmas!

I'm not going to stress that the repair man came today and couldn't fix my washing machine ( parts are to be ordered) because the heating is still going... and

The Christmas tree is up and decorated...

The cake is made and iced...

Several knitted presents are completed.
A Fan Neckwarmer in Rowan silk wool...

in gorgeous Noro Kureyon

A rather silly ski hat
that no one would model for me!

And... oh dear...
perhaps not everything was finished!

But I'm as ready as I'll ever be. Tomorrow I'm cooking Christmas lunch for twelve. Then they are all going off to various other places and Stewart and I are having a blissfully quiet Christmas to ourselves before they all return on Boxing Day.

All that remains is for me to wish all my blogging friends a very happy and blissful Christmas of your own.

    Great handwarmers too, I have a ball of that floating around - perhaps a gentle knit for after the storm!

  6. Gorgeous cake, lovely decorations and fantastic knitted gifts. You'll just have to spray everyone with Febreze until the washing machine is mended! Happy Christmas and 'see' you in the New Year.

    Love the scarf, Gina, realy cosy! Are they your feet - if so, you must paint the toenails red. Mine are ALWAYS red and they cheer me up and make me smile!
