On The Needles


Socks are finished for oldest son who was born on the 40th anniversary of D Day.  And more reading mitts I have a nice pile for hostess gifts.  I have been watching PBS Secrets of the Manor on my kindle, if I prop it just right I can knit.  Secrets of the Manor is a social experiment where volunteers are living in a manor house as they would have in the early 1900's. There are many scenes where a character is talking about their experience or explaining how things were or should have been and social progress.  The servants worked from before breakfast until long after the evening meal, slept and started all over again the next day.  Linking to Judy's OTN. --Ann--

Ann, is Secrets of the Manor a new program? I remember a number of years ago there was a program that had people living as they did in Colonial Times. That was a fun program to watch. I think I'm going to invite you to my home so I can get a pair of your beautiful mitts! Gorgeous knitting once again!

You have been getting lots of gifts finished. I like those mittens. Want to try some of those too before winter comes. That red yarn looks great.
