2014 Christmas: Randiriel socks and baked treats

Friday, December 26, 2014

Happy Christmas everyone!

Hope everyone had some lovely celebrations. It was great to see the new Christmas Tree TARDIS projects   springing up over December.

I only managed one gift-knit this year - some Randiriel socks for my Mum. They fit! Hooray!

Pattern: Randiriel socks by Alexandra Wiedmayer (travelling cables variation)

Sock knitting is becoming more enjoyable over time - and I love the look and process of knitting patterns with travelling cables.

For this pattern, the heel and toe are not provided. I am still a little unfamiliar with heels so used the heel from the Rick socks.

For Christmas celebrations we also baked some almond fingers (below), baklava, and cherry slice for family gatherings, and some Pumpkin, sage and ricotta lasagna for Christmas dinner with my family.

  1. Hello. Wish you a very blessed & joyous Christmas season and a very prosperous & Christ centered New year. It was good to visit your blog post and see the work you have done. I am in the Pastoral ministry for last 35yrs in the great city of Mumbai, India a city with great contrast where richest of rich and the poorest of poor live. We reach out to the poorest of poor with the love of Christ to bring healing to the broken hearted. We also encourage young as well as adults from the west to come to Mumbai on a short/ long term missions trip to work with us in the slums of Mumbai amongst poorest of poor during their vacation time. We would love to have you come to Mumbai to work with us in the slums of Mumbai. Tailoring School is one of the program for the women in the slum to train them and empower them so that they can go to garment industry to get jobs. Your knitting art will definately help women in the slums to get trained in so that they can start their own business. My email id is: dhwankhede(at)gmail(dot)com and my name is Diwakar Wankhede. Looking forward to hear from you very soon. God's richest blessings on you.
