Jitterbug Socks

What do you do when you are meant to be packing for the Christmas trek around the countryside? Have a go at knitting some toe up socks using some Jitterbug sock yarn.
Much more fun than packing and thinking about a week away. Every year Chris and I say we are staying home for Christmas and every year we trek around the countryside. Maybe next year.
I'm not really big on Christmas, especially one where I can't even have a drink, but I'm going to make an effort as the girls are getting very excited. I finally felt a bit Christmassy last night watching the Christmas special of Rockwiz. So I might put some music on and face the inevitable packing.

Merry Christmas. We hope the girls enjoy their day, Jada is so excited, but not to sure about the big guy. Please have a safe trip, and chat when you arrive home.

I'd love to stay home for christmas one year. Maybe when our parents are no longer with us. Have a soft drink in a champas glass and pretend. I do it often.

I've just read through your blog after ages of missing it - so wow, a lot has been happening your way! Congratulations on the pregnancy!!!!! And I'm looking forward to hearing more on the jitterbug. I bought some but haven't knitted it up yet. Feel I need to elevate my skills to match the quality of the yarn! Happy travels.
