We were so relieved when we boarded the plane and even more relieved and pleased when we landed! It was cold though. I thought we'd gotten used to cold weather with temperatures hovering around and just below 0 for weeks now but it was -15 when we landed.
We didn'd do much yesterday. We were exhausted after travelling over night. I slept and did lots of knitting and then had an early night. We've had a quiet day today too. The girls decorated the tree (and I forgot to take a photo) but I'm sure I'll take one in the next few days. Then they made marsipan which I love. Luckily I'd gone to bed for an hour or I would have eaten it all.
Lots of knitting progress. I finished the fingers on Em's first flip top glove:
Look at all those ends to weave in. I've got to try and work out how to do the flip top now. Vanessa has requested a pair too but I'm not sure if I've got the right colours of sock yarn for her. I told her we'd go through my Mum's leftover sock yarn and the ones I've brought and see if she likes any of them. I'm not buying anything new. I'd also like to do some Selbu inspired mittens for myself too which I'd like to start asap. I'm hoping i may be able to finish Em's first gove tonight and perhaps get to the fingers on the second.
I also finished Vanessa's first sock last night:
