WOYWW #167

Sorry about the word verification, I had a lot of unwanted spam the last few weeks so I put it on and that seemed to have worked and scared them away.
What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday
I have a good reason to be MIA for the last 2 desk viewings
The Olympics were on, what a wonderful 2 weeks that was.
Also my desk just looked the same because all I was doing was collating and counting and gathering   Christmas cards for the Stockings for Soldiers Project I am co-ordinating. Then they were short 2000 stockings so I started knitting miniature stockings as well for them. So my desk just looked the same for 2 weeks which are what the pictures below are of.

These cute little stockings took me an hour to make one and hold a packet of life saver lollies in it, the pen is to give you an idea of how small they are...Cute huh!!

 I started knitting neck scarves as well, I will post pictures of the ones I have done so far, they are truly addictive and so easy to do. You can see a multicoloured scarf to the left hanging on the chair, and a white Nelly Bobble one and behind that is the variegated green/blue one I am sending to my sister in New Zealand
And of course I have to eat through all of this hahahaha, this dish is curry chicken and Puff pastry because I ran out of Indian bread
Pop on over to Julia's Stamping Ground to see lots more desks

My knitting is atrocious! more holes than wool I am afraid...would be no good at this. They are adorable though. A job well done.

Too cute the booties! Brilliant Christmas stocking idea - you hardly have to buy any presents to fill them!! Happy WOYWW!

Cute little stockings, my Mum used to make them for Myrene to take to school at the end of the year to give to friends as Christmas presents. This is a fond memory.
How many do you plan on making and how is the Christmas card list going?

Hi Bridget,

Way to go on the stockings - they are tiny. I know why they took you an hour to make!! Small things are sometimes the most difficult (to handle). tee hee

The food looks yummy. A friend and I were just talking about curry. Thanks for visiting me already - your name is in the hat!


Gita said...

Another Bridget....of sorts! Great thing to be doing for the troops!!! Mmmmm, the Indian food looks yummy too.

Hi Bridgit.
The little stockings are very sweet and they look fantastic in a wheel on the desk. I did enjoy the Olympics, and I do hope we're getting over this thirst for gold medals when we have so many marvy athletes who have done bloody well in any case. I think we might be.
Take care,
Ros. #14.
