Sock It To Me Twice Contest
The new contest is about Holiday memories and knitting. In Norway the main day is Christmas Eve when many people go to church, have a family dinner and Santa arrives bringing gifts which are opened that night. Rest of the days are spent visiting family and friends or having them here for a visit. In my family we use to gather in my parents home, three sisters with partners and children. Recent years we`ve been 12 people celebrating together. The only Christmas away from my village was in 1990 when my dear grandmother died a week before Christmas. We stayed in her village 800 kms away over the holiday. It was a strange holiday, very emotional opening the last presents my grandmother had choosen for us.
I started my Christmas present knitting already between Christmas Eve and New Years Eve last year. Most of what I`ve knitted this year and posted in my blog are Christmas gifts, so I don`t want to post them here again. I`ve mostly knitted socks, scarves, wrist warmers and lately I`ve started knitting mittens. Photos show three pairs of felted Lovikka mittens I just made for gifts. Also a photo of last years Christmas trees and the two Santas that arrived and this years Amaryllis flowers.
