Christmas Countdown

It's one month to Christmas today. I've done all my Christmas shopping but this morning I realised that I only have 19 knitting days left to finish Mr Soaring Sheep's Christmas socks. Eeek!

I'm about 20 rows off putting in the waste yarn for the after-thought heel. The stitch pattern will then spiral round on the leg part which means I'll have to pay attention to which row I'm on so that I know how long to knit the second pair! The pattern is Charybdis by the way which is free on ravelry.

Think I'll have a quick cup of tea and then back to the knitting :-) Linking up with Keep Calm Craft On today
