Finished Mittens!




The yarn is superwashed wool merino from my dear friend at Emerald Isla Yarn. They are beautiful and perfect for the time of year!

Parents and Children.







Grand Parents and Grand Kids.










Garrett and Delaney created a graham cracker house...sweet!







My Bliss Shawl needed a new pretty for Christmas. I received many complements on it at the Christmas gathering.

Batman Arrives


So...do you think it is safe to post dear son's Christmas gift here? I guess I will find out if he reads it or not!

Surprise!

Lesa is amazing! She was my JH swap partner...which means I've been lucky twice. Lesa is a teacher also...did you notice the book, poster putty, and hand sanitizer? The Kisses will be put to good use. I had purchased some to bake into peanut butter cookies, but my family ate them first. Now I have some they don't know about...I can do stealth baking!

Then the yarnie stuff...wow! I love the needles, and I didn't have that size...you rock! Galway is a wonderful yarn...I think it will become some of Alice's New Moon Mitts. The bag will become an emergency knitting case...with the Knit Picks Dakota yarn being the first part of the kit. I'm in love with the Baby Alpaca Grande Hand Dyed yarn...it is so soft and beautiful. I need to find the perfect project for it!

Thank you, Lesa...I'm very lucky to call you my friend.

Oh...I can't forget the Christmas card either...I now have stamps so mine can go out soon!






Someone will be getting a Mountain Colors Cap (knit with two strands of this glorious yarn) for Christmas. It will help keep a loved one warm!

Baby, it is cold outside!



This is what the front door at the apartment...the -18F was creeping into my living space!





This should help keep me warm!
