I hope each and every one had a wonderful Christmas holiday. My mom drove into town Christmas Eve and spent Christmas morning with us opening presents and eating Christmas brunch. Then I drove her to the airport Christmas afternoon so she could fly to Tulsa for her nephew’s 50th wedding anniversary celebration. Once mom was dispatched, my husband, kids and I had a day of family fellowship by reading the Christmas story, taking a Christmas nap, snacking on Christmas goodies, playing board games, watching movies, and generally lazing around. And what did Santa bring knitti-me, you may ask? Well, let me show you. This, my friends is the Stitch ‘n Bitch by Debbie Stoller and Weekend Knitting by Melanie Falick. I spent several hours browsing these two volumes. In my stocking, amid cavity- and calorie-inducing bon bons, was this little treasure. Knitting: History, Fashion, and Great Knitting Yarns. It’s hard to see, but little ditty is only about 3 ½” x 2 ¾” with a precious yarn and needle charm attached to the ribbon bookmark. And what’s that I see in the mirror? Why it’s a new digital camera! Woo Hoo! Being without a home computer, I still have to run to the photo shop and get the images scanned onto a disk, but at least now I can preview the photos. I also received some wonderful gift certificates to the LYS, the Bead Shoppe (thank you Karin!), and to a day of pampering at a day spa. And Sponge Bob also stopped by to wish everyone a Merry Christmas. FO’s I finally finished the Berries & Cream Boa, which I have kept for myself. I also finished this scarf knit from Colinette’s Chicago wool in the Copperbeach colorway. I think I’ll be keeping this one too. WIP What’s that green creature lying on my windowsill? Why it’s my daughter’s boa! It’s knit from these two yarns; Adraiful Stars in lime and an eBay purchase (I think its Ironstone). Ally sends best wishes for a Happy New Year!
