Thanks again to my SP9 pal
I didn't have the best of weeks, so imagine how thrilled I was when I got this in the mail from Austria!
Three beautiful skeins of handpainted yarn in a really pretty pink and orange colorway, and a pair of wristwarmers and toys for the brats. You may notice the toys again didn't make it to the photo. They loved it and so did I- Thanks so mucjh- the yarn is beautiful and I'm going to save it for something special for me.
The holiday knitting is coming to a close. I finished knitting the cardigan for my Mom, it needs finishing however. I knitted a pair of socks for MIL, my sister Eileen and my boss. They are all complete. I knit a scarf for my SIL and I made up and knit a pattern for felted hunters mittens for the FIL. I have to make two more pairs, maybe three for the rest of the guys.
My hands hurt. I have been getting up at 4am to knit for a few hours in the morning and I think I like it. My stomach doesn't like all the coffee, but I'm feeling peppier than I have in a while. When this is done, I'm making myself a cardigan, dammit!
