Merry Christmas to me!

I was a bad/good girl so I bought these books, I really like the quilt bag book. I got a fleece off ebay. We'll see how that works out. And I got two skeins of fearless fibers sock yarn in purple and orange. Also lots of cadbury milk chocolate mmmm. Can't wait till the rest comes.

I am working on designing a sweater for some Malabrigo in alpine pearl. I bought this because I love the colors, then saw some knit up online and I didn't like it. So I will make it in seed stitch or a slip stitch pattern so it doesn't pool too much.

Christmas day

I had to work just 4 hours in the morning. On my way home I saw 4 maybe 6 cardinals in a small front corner yard, so I turned right to watch them longer. They where so pretty what a nice present.

Fair results

I'm slowly getting the hang of the new camera. I got a ribbon for everything I entered. 3 blue ribbons and a third place for the sweater I think that first place was well deserved, it was a hand spun cable cardigan, very nice with the raglan seam a half cable on either side nicely done.
Now for pictures, Cat had to help.

another pic of the star sweater

I am working on Tempting II from
amd a shrug from knitpicks shine. Anyone how does this wash? Still working on two pairs of socks. Haven't knitted in a couple of days. Its been very very strange around here. Some one totaled husbands truck while it was parked at 11:30 pm. One dog got out and went to play in traffic, he's ok but I think an angel moved him cause I thought he was going to get hit for sure. The bathroom sprung a leak so some of the ceiling in the dinning room came down, then the fish tank filter got clogged and made that hole bigger.( at least it wasn't fixed yet. This was in about 48 hours, oh and one morning I woke to the cat throwing up. what a week.
