To keep in with the Christmas Knitting Theme, I decided to do this months WI Competition - a Christmas Bauble. I decided last night on the pattern in last months 'Lets Knit!' and used some freebie yarn, I think from the same magazine. I've not done any fair isle for a bit and was pleased to feel that I still found it straightforward and enjoyable to do. Even on dpn's. This was how far I'd got by the time bedtime arrived. I didn't think I'd get it done today. We were out most of the morning. So when Mary-Jane went up for her afternoon nap, I got the needles out pronto and carried on till job done, which was about two and a half hours in total.
Following being nominated and seconded, I am now Secretary to Beckermet Womens Institute. The Treasurer gave me a big welcoming hug, that was nice. More stories getting ready for the telling there. HK is very dubious about me taking on this role as he thinks I will be greatly put upon. Time will tell.
As we had to go out this morning, I put Mary-Jane in her Reindeer outfit. HK says that she'll get her own back on me one day. I think she looks gorgeously cute!
