The living room actually looks completely different since my daughter has put up the christmas tree. Speaking of my daughter, Paige, she wore a hat I knit her over a year ago......the weather has been cold enough for her to use this hat.
I also finished knitting a pom pom blanket for her as a surprise present for Christmas (no, her sweater is not done yet...but the blanket it).
I also had my gift exchange with my knitting bff, Darlene....she got me the most awesome gifts ever! The Loopy Ewe has these fall giftables that has a special and exclusive hand dyed yarn and she got me the October kit that came with a skein of Wollmeise in Confidence! It is gorgeous! It came with a pattern and I cannot wait to cast on!! She also got me one of the exclusive sets from Little Skein. This kit came with a skein of yarn, a project bag, a pattern, and set of stitch markers.....the stitch markers (and yarn) match the project bag.......YUP! It is so perfectly cute! I cannot wait to make a pair of socks with this awesome yarn. While I absolutely love all the yarn and knitting paraphernalia, the best part was the card.....it says "A good friend will tell you when you're being silly. A great friend will join you." Darlene is a GREAT friend! Thank you Darlene!
These last 10 days have flown by.....it seems like every day I am just either packing and moving more stuff or I am unpacking and putting things where I think they need to go......I did manage to order one more yarn club. This is the Miss Babs Knitting Tour 2014. It is very similar to the Strickmich Club I just joined, but this is the 3rd year (I think) that she is doing this....I really wanted to do it last year, but I just could not swing it financially....so this year I knew I had to do this club. Thankfully each club mails in different months, so for 8 out of 12 months next year.....I should be getting a package of fun!
I leave you with a fun Knitter's Christmas Picture.....and my favorite picture of Paige and Antonio (that smile melts my heart) :
Happy Happy Happy Knitting!!!!!
