Happy Holidays!

Happy Holidays!

A cousin of mine gave me this light up sweater ornament a few years ago. It is probably my favorite ornament.

More FO's

Top is the Mohican Hat by Morehouse Farms. It is actually a dark navy blue but I just couldn't get the color to photograph correctly. Those spikes became annoying very quickly. I think if I had started it sooner, I would have enjoyed it more as I love their yarn.

The bottom is another Yarn Harlot Scarf. This was my lunch knitting. I am not sure who is getting it.

All that is left is the Palindrome scarf that I don't need to finish till January. This will go into work lunch knitting for the rest of the week.

I am trying to finish up a felted bag that has been on the needles for months plus a shawl by Spunky Eclectic. My Hanami I will get back to in January. I have some mittens and a scarf for me planned for winter knitting that I can't wait to make but I want to finish up at least the felted bag before I start anything else. Well, after Palindrome, the scarf for me will become work lunch knitting.

XMas FO's

Two FO's for the holidays. The top is the Enjoyable Rib Scarf, made out of some Frog Tree Merino. The pattern came from somewhere on the internet and it will be for my niece. I have a skein left and plan to either make a Calorimetry or a Beret Gaufre.

The bottom is the Multidirectional scarf, also from the internet. It is made out of Gedrifa Fashion Trend Stripe. It is for a co-worker. I have two skeins left of this and I may make a beret and some fingerless mitts.

New on the needles now is the Mohican hat from Morehouse farms. I love their yarn.

Gift Knitting

I am down to just a few items left. One in progess is Palindrome above that is for a co-worker that lets me borrow DVD's. She will be off for Xmas break before I get it done so she will get a surprise in the new year. A very fun knit out of Gedrifa Fashion Trend Stripe that I bought at WEBS in the back room. I have a Multidirectional scarf also going out of the same yarn but in a blue colorway. I also have a scarf for my niece on the needles for my lunch knitting. All I have left is a Mohican Hat from Morehouse for my nephew.

I have to block the Starfish scarf from Ocean Breezes for my mother and will get a better picture of that when it is on the blocking board. I also made her a felted bag that I have to make a lining for. I finally found a button a few weeks ago.
I can't wait to finish so I can finish and start a few things for me.
