Merry Christmas!

Boxing day over and it’s been one of the best Christmases ever. Not because I got fabulous gifts, was pampered and didn’t have to lift a finger, but because the magic of Christmas was bought back by our little Florence. Her little giggles, smiles, mountains of exciting presents and paper tearing abilities reinvigorated Christmas day and Boxing day for the Parkinson and Davis families and bought us all back to the excitement of a childhood Christmas.

So to update you on my Christmas projects, do you remember the Millamia stripy babygrow I bought the materials for way back at Ally Pally in October? Well I actually got it finished and it fits! Granted I finished it late on Christmas eve and didn’t even manage to get it wrapped. And it will most likely only fit Florence for a month or so before she grows out of it. But the 3 months of knitting were still worth it to see her all snuggled inside.

Don't ask me where her sock went.

I also knitted my sister in law a vintage hair snood from Knitting Fashions of the 1940’s by Jane Waller. It was really simple to make and fingers crossed it looks nice when she fixes it in her gorgeous 40’s hair. Photos to follow!

Finally, I confess that my Christmas quilt... did not get finished. It is a little bit of a shame but I really would rather that it be finished properly for next Christmas than be finished in a rush for this one. Now I can try to take my time over it and make it the best I can to cuddle up under next year.

Florence the Mr and I would like to wish you a very Merry Christmas!


  1. Merry Christmas, I'm so glad you're all having such a good time and that Flo is enjoying herself, she looks so gorgeous x

  2. Happy Christmas and a wonderful New Year. How fabulous to see little Florence looking so well and clearly enjoying Christmas.
    I adore the babygrow you've knitted and she looks adorable in it.
