Goodbye 2019, Hello 2020

Hey appears I am not closing down 2019 very well as I missed a whole weeks blog post.  I have not blogged since before how was your Christmas?  Mine was great!

I got an amazing bag from Darlene (along with the advent tea, mug, plus a set of Flight of Stitch Markers plus, she is making me a sweater..she spoils me!):

We had a small Christmas party at work and a new coworker (but long time friend) made me the cutest sweater ornament

I spent Christmas with my family

and even got Jaz for a small visit

I did not take as many pictures as I should have (I was actually not feeling well), but here is a great picture of Mario with Alexxis and a picture of my sister's family

On the knitting front, I finished the hat for Paige....I had to get a new skein of yarn and you can see how different the new skein is

This is all I needed of the new skein...the pompom covers the differences

and decided to make Bizz a blanket....these colors

 I finished on Christmas day and gave to her the next day

I finished Grace's socks (FINALLY)!

and started a pair for Chris George for Christmas (Okay, so I am a bit behind)

I started a new headband for Yvette

Santa was super good to me and I got an Apple TV and a great stitch marker holder (to hold the markers Darlene got me).

Jaime and I went to Fredericksburg this past weekend....and I had some amazing German good....Jägerschnitzel, Spaetzle, red cabbage

And I saw this sign in the candy store....I thought it was cute

Well, that is all I have......Have a great week and Happy New Year!

 (Jaime sent me this pic, told me it reminded him of Jax <3)

Happy Happy Happy Knitting!

One More Week!!!

Just one More week till Christmas!  Are you ready?

I got my tree up!

I went to an amazing Christmas Party!

Our Beautiful Hostess, Elizabeth:

Ornament Cupcakes!

Me and Jen Matching!

Ornament Exchange

While at the Christmas party, Elizabeth showed me her Chiaogoo shorties.....she puts a 3" needle on the left side and a 2" needle on the right and goes to I ordered just one size (amazon link here) to try it out.

Antonio won his last soccer game (I was not able to go)

Paige made healthy muffins

I finished the hat and started a 2nd one.

I got a new Joji bag from my friend having the Christmas party....the orange is really hard to photograph

I want to make another one of these hats with my Knitphomaniac yarn (same yarn I used to make my portage) and a lighter mohair

 I finished the first of two headbands for Yvette

and I finally got a picture of Karl with his socks....they fit!  Yahoo!!

I have been enjoying my tea calendar from Darlene.....

I also finally finished Darlene's Christmas present.....I got her the flight of stitch markers set, a little namaste case, a set of knit picks needles for making hats/sleeves and I crocheted her a Good Vibes Throw.

Well, that is all I have......have a great week are some Christmas rules!

Happy Happy Happy Knitting!
