I had a little spare time yesterday.
The whole thing started with the squared one. I wanted to try if I could knit this design. Yes I could, but it was too slow to make for Christmas besides a lot of people in my family do knit themselves. Not that many crocheting though. So I chose to crochet instead and it's much faster too. These are not potholders but hot pot coasters. You know to protect the bench or table from hot pots.
I've chosen to make them colourful just to brighten any grey day. I'm planning to give one to each family in my family,as a small gift. Perhaps that will inspire the girls to start crocheting. That would be fun.
Today I'm going to polish all the doorhandles. Every door in our house have brass handles, old real brass. There are quite a few to do so that will be my job today. Tomorrow will be the day for the silvervare. Oh, the forks are difficult to polish.
The roast has to be put into sour too if I'm going to get it ready for Christmas. Baking will be done later on. Coming week will be all about cleaning/washing.
And this year my mom is coming home for Christmas so I'll have to pay her a visit or two too.
Because of my mom we are all going to celebrate Christmas together this year and that mean that we will be more than 30 persons at Christmaseve. Amongst them are 11 great grandchildren.
I'm off to polish, have a nice weekend.
