Christmas Done.....Here comes 2021

 Hey everyone.....I am sure I am not the only one that is ready to say goodbye to 2020......Christmas is done and it was very good to me.  I finished Darlene's wrap, and I also gifted her the test knit I do every year for my friend, Brigit, in The Netherlands.....her Advent Stole is a dream to test knit every year!

I even squeezed out a hat for Bizz and an ornament for Ped.

Now, the ornament above took me 5 for real maybe even a little more than 5 hours....but this much simpler pattern takes a lot less time (but I did not try this one till after Christmas) this is what my future ornament knitting will be:

Darlene got me my annual tea calendar and mug that I absolutely love, but she also made me the most gorgeous quilt that is as soft as butter!  Thank you Darlene!

I also finished that hat I was working on for a friend's father, and the Christmas tree I was crocheting....Paige stole the Christmas tree, put it in her house with lights in it.....

I also finished my Hedgehog Fibers blanket....and signed up for next years blanket with Jimmy Beans Wool....Next year is Malabrigo Rios Yarn.

Darlene's grandson wants a Rasta I found this yarn in stash:

Antonio got a Y Flicker scooter and learned to shoot a BB gun......

A special someone got me some beautiful Daisies.....they make me smile everyday!

Lastly, my kids got me a Food Saver (Yeah!!!) and some amazingly soft pants (not pictured because they are on my body) and my parents got me a Lululamon oversized 1/2 sweat shirt....I love it all!  I was definitely spoiled this year!

Well, I think that is all I have.......good bye 2020.....Hello 2021, and please be better to us.....I hope to be more consistent with my blog next year.....thanks for following me!

Happy Happy Happy Knitting!

Still Christmas Knitting......

 Hey are you?  I am still Christmas knitting.....Yikes!  I am trying to hard to get done....LOL!

I also got my December yarn for my blanket....and just as I thought, it is another main color that I do not need, but will keep for a hat or something.

Melissa, Elizabeth and I podcasted episode 8 (link here) and Elizabeth had her annual Christmas party....not many pics, as we all socially distanced.

Melissa got us monogramed cups...I love them!

I started a crocheted bobble tree

and a hat for our Hat KAL on the podcast

and my author friend sent me an autographed book she has out for Christmas.....its a Christmas Novella and you really should give it a read.....It is called Judge me Not.  Thank you Maggie!

Well, that is really all I have....have a great week....and remember to be kind!

Happy Happy Happy Knitting!

Christmas Knitting

 Hi have you been?  Things have been okay here......I have been trying to stay busy with work, the house, and the gym.

I got my tree up.....this is the smallest tree I have ever put up, so I put it up on a table (it is the top part of my regular big tree).

I have been only knitting on Christmas presents....and right now that means Darlene's boxy cape!

I love advent calendars and Darlene got me my annual tea advent....I love it!

I want to make some hats as gifts as well....with these

Paige decorated her house

I am also going to try to crochet up one or two of these for around my house (pattern here)

Well, that is all I have.....I Hope y'all have a great week!  

Happy Happy Happy Knitting!
