3 generations knitting at Christmas

I hope all my customers and blog readers have had a wonderful Christmas. For US readers we don’t have thanksgiving so this is the major time for families to spend time together and many folks end up driving across the country to catch up with family. This year those journeys were hampered by snow. Thankfully we didn’t have to go anywhere. Nicola’s mum came to stay and one day I popped into the front room to find 3 generations knitting together. I love the way Jojo is concentrating intently, Nicola is relaxed and getting on with it but Rena’s hands are completely on autopilot whilst she reads a book.

There was plenty of time for playing in the snow and the kids and I built an igloo. Here they are finishing off just as it got dark.
And the next day in the sunshine.

There are lots of fun things about being in a small village at Christmas, catching up with all the generation who have moved away but come home for Christmas, carols in church, sledging with all the village kids but probably may favourite is enjoying good food and company with good friends and family. I wonder how many other folks out there enjoyed their Christmas dinner off one of my plates.

    I would love to see a picture of that wall cabinet above the women.

    Lovely scenes Robin, glad you had a good time. Yes, I, like Jeff would love to see more of that, very interesting glimpse, of the cabinet.

    I'll try and get a picture of it sometime when the light is right.
