Demob Happy

Released from work for a long (gloriously "not back till Tuesday" type long) weekend I feel crazy happy with finger tingling anticipation at a weekend full of knitting. Two long train journeys and cosying down with my Ma and Pa means that I shall have knitting in hand for many of my waking hours. Poifect.

This will be my travelling project on the way down; now I don't have to I am of course enjoying knitting my Dad's Christmas socks.

Keeping with my current garter stitch love these are a garter rib stitch.

Thank you all so much for your thoughtful and thought provoking comments on my last post; I had definitely started treating my knitting as something I had to do and getting too focussed on the idea of the process. When you stop with the fussing it's all so simple isn't it? Is it any wonder I'm happy as can be? No work for four days and the world of knitting is at my fingertips. Beautiful.
