The end of year break is always one of my favourite times: for 3 days leave I’m getting ten days off work, and they are going to be such fun, relaxing days. On Sunday we have Leon’s family Christmas. Since Leon is the youngest of 7, no one actually expects us to take any part in planning, so that’s a relaxing day. Then on Christmas day itself Elise is hosting brunch. A chance to hang out, relax, catch up.
Then the day after Christmas it’s five days of cricket. Even though we’ve already won the ashes, the atmosphere is always great when we play the Poms.
After that, a couple of days to relax. The most important question is, of course, what are you knitting?
I’ve swatched for Stasis, and knitted most of the colourwork, so that should be very smooth sailing, perfect for social and drinking occasions. I also have my secret project to finish. A little more complex, but it will be perfect for the evenings after knitting on the jumper all day.
I’m also doing more of the “plying things up to make them thicker” thing. I will write a full post about that when I’m further into the project and have something to show you.
Enjoy your Christmas and new years, however you celebrate.
