A brand new year awaits

 There's been a frenzy of cleaning going on here these last two days.   I like all the Christmas decorations down, packed away and back in the loft by New Year's Eve.  As much as I like to see all the Christmas decorations I'm ready to be rid of the clutter by the end of December ready to start the new year.

I'm not going to do a round-up of my crafty year, everything is here on my blog and is there for anyone to look back at, should you even want to :-)

I do however have one more finish for the year and it's one I've been promising myself I would do for a good few years.  I finally finished a pair of socks!

I could have done better with the matching but who's going to see that once they're on?  I'm just glad that 2020 was good for something πŸ˜‚

I didn't struggle too much with the heel and picking up stitches, and I'm happy that I have no hole where the stitches were picked up.

You can see they need blocking, the crease is where I had them folded.

I'll definitely plan on making more in the future :-)

I suppose It's just worth noting that our borough, like many others, has just entered tier 4.  None essential shops will once again be closed.  We can only hope that things will start to improve in the coming year, surely things can only get better?

Thank you to everyone who has read and taken the time to comment on my blog this year and throughout my December blogging too, I still get excited to see a comment pop up and do love to read all of them, so thank you.

So that's it for another year, one we will remember for sure.

Happy New Year to you all, make it a good one πŸ˜€

What gorgeous socks, Maggie! Love the shade of blue! I haven't even begun to put the Christmas things away... think I will do a bit each week and then the tree next weekend. I seem to want the lights of Christmas out a bit longer this year :)

So hoping for easier days for us all in 2021! Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! I'm sure it's 2021 there now. Great socks! I put a bare minimum of Christmas decorations up, just wasn't feeling it. It's just me and my cats. I spent Christmas at my daughters place. Sorry to hear your country has gone into Tier 4. I'm hoping 2021 is better for the entire world as far as Covid is concerned. Take care, stay healthy!

Love the socks I used to knit a pair every few weeks and then I got the crochet bug again, so no socks..
Happy New Year Maggie

Beautiful socks! Happy New Year!

Yay, all that beautiful yarn you've got stashed away can now be used on socks! You did a great job with them. Everything's packed away again here too, it's sad to think that Christmas is done with for another year though it does seem to come around far too quickly for my liking these days. Wishing you and your family a Happy New Year and all the very best for 2021 xx

Your socks are amazing!! What pretty yarn. And here in the US, we are dying by the THOUSANDS every day. It's shameful. I am ashamed to be american at this time in history. Especially after this week. :( I hope your new year is good and wish you health and happiness.
