I have finished my first official Christmas gift this weekend. I found a pattern online call Irish Hiking Scarf and I like it a lot but really didn't have any yarn to suit the pattern. I was out shopping and stopped in at JoAnn's Fabrics and found the Lion Brand Wool-Ease on sale. I really liked a multi colored yarn called Wood. I just grabbed 2 as they were 2/$5.00. I started the pattern and thought is looked well together. I won't say who it is for in case they visit me. I also finished two mohair potato chip scarves that I won't show as they are definitely for some one that looks at my blog. I feel good for having started the gift process. I won't stress myself with big plans, just little gifts that I can finish between now and the big day.
I also want to send out a big thank you to Amanda. I won a contest on her blog and my prize arrived Saturday. I was thrilled, it is the first time I won a Blog contest. So, thank you, Amanda! I love the Addi-Turbo size threes, just right for all the baby goodies I knit, the sweater stone has been used already on some of hubby's pilly sweaters and I love the dish/face cloth. I love receiving something that someone has ade. My Lovely daughter Megan went to visit Salem, Mass. a few weekends ago and visited a LYS just for me. She said it was a great place. It is called Seed Stitch and she bought me a skein of Sockotta sock yarn. It is lovely, and she bought it for me! Wow, that is a new experience for me. Someone buying me super yarn! Megs know how much I love to knit and she made me very happy thinking of me. Actually both of my daughters are very supportive of my knitting. Kate took me to a LYS on my last visit to see her. It was such fun. They are both honeys! Everyone have a great start of the week and Happy Knitting.
