Yarn along - last minute Christmas project

~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs. I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well. So, what are you knitting or crocheting right now? What are you reading? Take a single photo and share it either on your blog or on Flickr. Leave a link below to share your photo with the rest of us! ~ Ginny



running out of yarn...
using the last bits of that fabulous red you liked so much and FINALLY FOLLOWING PATTERN!!! ..it would be hard to crochet s... something without pattern (at least for the first time :) - I already know I'll make some changes with the next s... something I crochet but for now I'm following the rules :)


it wouldn't be a "last minute" project if I didn't start it for 3 times - not able to decide which color(s) I should use...
so here we are, few days before christmas, lots of baking and cleaning and wrapping to be done and I'm still not finished with this...


oh, and there's a postcard from England which I opened yesterday ( when I came home after almost one month ) and I love it, so I wanted to share...

can't say what it is and who will find it under the tree, but you probably already know - it's on the photo after all...

well, let's keep it a secret and say that it's s... something christmasy :)

and I'm reading "Nancy and Plum" by Betty MacDonnald -my favorite Christmas story - which I read every year, several times before christmas :) - this copy is in Slovak, I got is a couple years ago when it was still normal for me to get books in slovak :D now all I get/buy is English or French :P ...and I LOVE THAT BOOK!!! YOU HAVE TO READ IT!!! I know it's a story for kids, but it's perfect for this time of the year! SERIOUSLY READ IT!!!

and visit Ginny's blog to see the most beautiful set of mittens I've every seen... I WANT ONES TOO :) please...pretty please :)

UPDATE: TWO MORE CARDS CAME IN THE MAIL TODAY!!!! ONE FROM IRELAND AND ONE FROM MY HIGH SCHOOL CLASS TEACHER!!! CHRISTMAS IS ON THE WAY!!!

  4. All these socks make me want to make a pair, too! I could almost read the slovak title (similar to Polish, but a little different).

  7. The Christmas Box is a lovely little inspirational story. It's very short, but a good read. Nice project!
