Knitting around Portimao

Small and portable. That was the theme of the Holiday. Socks, hats, well that was about it. I finished the Cable socks, which I love and knitted the Sunflower Tam from Knitting Nature. I'll post about that after I finish the scarf.

Here's a bit of knitting by the seaside on Christmas Day I think.

Cheryl and I are hard at it in the hotel room while the children are glued to the TV.

Here we are by the pool. It's a rough life with the pool to yourself. We did have to chip the ice off the top on the first day before the children got in. They came out quickly and quite purple around the gills.

It's a great holiday when the children are occupied and the adults are able to enjoy themselves too. Aaahhh!!!

Looks like ye had a great time in Portugal. Your hair looks fab in the last photo - just realised I've never seen you with your hair "down" - you always seem to wear it tied up - it looks gorgeous - you should wear it down more!

Boys were off drinking strong coffee and searching for the illusive Internet.
