Too Tired To Tidy!!! (What's New?)

Today it is very cold and wind has been howling outside..needless to say I haven't strayed far.
I was woken this morning at 11am by my Mister, with a cup of tea (one of the reasons I love him). He had already been out, taken the bus to the town centre and done some shopping before coming back to rouse me from my slumber. This is where we differ greatly, he gets up and gets on with what needs to be done whilst I'm still wiping the sleep out my eyes.

I just can't seem to get going at all at the moment.

I'm just trying to stay warm and get enthused in knitting but even that's an effort. Maybe I need a break away from knitting the teddies for a bit (although I was hoping to do 20 but have only completed 5..with a good few more needing sewn up).

I am trying to knit socks as an Xmas gift, adapting the 2 needles kids sock pattern on Zibibbo's blog to fit an adult. I didn't have any suitable colours in chunky wool left so I am knitting 2 strands of double knitting (worsted) together to make thicker socks. I will post a pic later on if they come together as intended.

I opened my cupboard today that holds my stash and it all came tumbling out on top of me. Ahh well time for a clear out I think...grrr. I did find this lovely yarn I forgot I had..Knitpicks Wool of the Andes in the shade Redwood Forest. It was sent to me by my lovely swap partner a few months back and I was saving it to knit something for myself. I love the autumnal colours but unsure what to knit...any suggestions knitters out there?

Thanks for the comment! I'm finding it okay. I've got a list though for the month of topics in case I don't have something I can think of that day to post (actaully, with I few topics because they're laid out by day I'm feeling a little guilty for not posting).

Best wishes with your posting and good luck on your bears!
