Casting on for Christmas πŸŽ„πŸŽ„πŸŽ„

Christmas is going to be very different this year. Even before the government’s big announcement we had decided to postpone the festivities until Easter when, hopefully, it will be safer to get together with family. N’s granddaughter will be one, so loads of fun getting into everythingπŸ˜‰

I will, of course, be knitting for Christmas. Any gifting will be done via the post. Deliveries will probably be both sides of the big day, depending on how I get my act together.

The makings of a Christmas stocking!

N and I are planning a nice dinner which will be dropped off at his parents’ kitchen door. Hopefully it will be a dry day so that we don’t get soaked chatting in the garden. Our priority is keeping our oldies safe.

Being mindful and filling my head with stitching patterns.

Woolly wishes,

Jane β™‘β™‘β™‘

  1. Same here! My family has already cancelled everything – we MIGHT see my grandparents, but we might just chat with them outside of their appartment, it would definitely be safer. (there is a big hullaballoo about the whole thing whee I live, too and I totally get it, it WOULD be grand if we could see everyone we wanted to, but it’s not on this year and that is that. At least, most people can talk via videochat.)

  2. That sounds like a great plan and ensuring a safe and happy Christmas for you all. I love the festive red and white knitting. I don’t really do gift knitting unless one of my girls has actually asked for something – and then I like to choose the wool. This of course is a problem as none of them are happy to wash wool. I give it to them and tell them to bring it back to me for washing. Needless to say, I don’t get asked often. πŸ™‚

  3. I had hoped that 2020 would end on a high note, with all this COVID crap behind us, but I guess we have to soldier on. Because we live so far away from our family, it’s usually just the five of us anyway and so Christmas will look much the same this year. Except there won’t be a Christmas show, which traditionally we used to do with the boys’ “adopted Canadian grandparents” – sadly one of them died in January so we will remember her with fondness.

  4. I’m so sorry to hear that. Here in Australia, things are returning to a new normal. Of course, there are changes to carols and firework displays, but as far as Christmas day things are looking close to normal. I hope you can enjoy your Christmas knitting.

    1. I always enjoy a bit of knitting no matter what the occasionπŸ˜„
      The government have said small family groups can get together over Christmas but our parents are precious and vulnerable and the covid rates are still high so we will visit but stay outside and hopefully things will be better in the new year Enjoy your close to normal Christmas day πŸŽ„πŸŽ„πŸŽ„


  5. We’ve had plans in place for some time too, shocked me as I do like to keep Christmas very firmly in December! Lots of thing to consider like the grandchildren who now have separated parents. Will be a juggle but the world doesn’t stop turning. Stay safe!
