Christmas decorations.

My Christmas decorations are not really coming along well ive brought the wool but because of a very old and slightly broken washing machine ive not been able to felt the wool. 

since then i have been able to felt my pieces in the machine and it did not go well they over-felted to a massive degree.

The noro shawl that never ends.

My noro shawl never ends it keeps growing but is never big enough, being a circle it does need to quite large to be used as a scarf or shawl but i predict that i wont have it finished before Christmas it just seems to be eating up the wool and i think i may need a third ball of yarn meaning it would have taken over 1800 meters of yarn to finish the project.
I have really now been working on it very much at all as one row is so long and takes so long to do, also with Christmas not very long away and im very busy with making christmas presents.

christmas presents.

My Christmas knit list seems so be increasing by the day currently it stands at,
dads jumper , toms mobius hat, Emma and jacks socks, Christmas decorations and the children's knitting as well as Christmas cards.
Emmas socks are coming along well but dads jumper is taking quite a log time.

yesterday i finally found a pattern that i liked for jacks socks on ravlery which is a spiral sock but i need to slightly adjust the stitch count to make them ever so slightly bigger.
