A Christmas Gift Challenge End of Wk 12

It is the end of Wk 12 (23rd Nov - 29th Nov) & I finished yet another pair socks I know that it been a bit boring with me doing mostly socks but that what most of the single men or boys are getting you see the latest one below they are a Grey Marl colour using a 4 ply yarn I have more of this one so will be doing more next year for DH in this yarn.
You also see below some blocks I just done they are Double Neck Tie Block you can find the pattern   Here   these were for the lottery block on our online retreat which we did at my Online Group well I didn't win & I was a bit slow in doing these it been a week since we had the draw but they will be in the post so they be winging their way to Claudia who won them.
I have ordered 2 new Thimbleberry books by Lynnette Jensen they are Thimbleberries You're Invited" & Block by Block to Beautiful Quilts" both I am getting from Amazon UK but it from sellers as it cheaper than getting from them & they still are new they should be here in the next week or so.
Well tomorrow is the first of December & the count down to Christmas really begins I don't think I have many more gifts to do possible a couple more pairs of socks but no sewing that said I am still working on the Applique Top which may be a gift not a 100% sure I do really like it but it just a little small for my table on how DH likes it he likes it to hang over rather than a centre piece so I know his brother has the same table as us but with the centre piece still in we taken ours out as there is just the 2 of us most of the time so it will make a nice table topper or even a centre piece on a bed I am hoping to finish it this week so it may be on next weeks report hope you all are getting on well with your gifts & the weather is not too bad where ever you are we had a lot of rain & winds & will be having more over the coming week but we have not had it anywhere near as bad as Cumbria has had it so please keep them in your thoughts & prayers

You're making such good progress. I can't wait to the the topper. BTW I bought everything I need to knit some socks. Now I just need time.
