I'll post my knitterly gifts I recieved for Christmas later, as soon as I take some pictures, but right now I'm back to working on the Winter coat for Leslie (I'm actually making some progress), and I have a new project to start from Julie.

I got half my mail delivered before I called it quits. It just got too dangerous. You can't even see where your feet are landing. Not to mention people getting stuck everywhere and getting in my way. Oh... and I lost my truck and house keys somewhere on my route which will be buried under a good foot of snow.....SOMEWHERE!!!!!!
But now I'm home safe and warming up.
This day calls for some homemade soup, bad kitties
and lots knitting.....

It's been kind of a tradition (since the kids were small) that we crafted a new ornament or got something new for the tree each year. But now that they're all grown up, I have to come up with these things on my own. I think they're truly the cutest things ever.
Look at Russell, trying to remind me to get back on track and finish what I've already started.And big kisses go out to my big girl!!! Happy 5th Birthday Miss "P" you silly goose!

Pattern: Quick and Easy Helmut ( Patons kids Hip Hop)
Yarn: Nashua Creative Focus Superwash 2--50g balls
You knit this hat with 2 strands of yarn and does it knit fast. I have two more balls, 1 periwinkle and 1 lime to match her snowsuit. But first I have to make a hat for RoBo baby.
I think I need a live model.

Pattern: Texture Pullover Tahki Yarns Terra Collection Fall/Winter 2008
Yarn: Montana 100% unprocessed wool roving 4-5 balls depending if you make the right size.
Although this was not my favorite project to knit, it was a very quick knit. If you're looking for a quick project before Christmas, this might be the ticket. There's also some other quick projects in the book too.Julie has it all at the store!

Yarn: Noro Yuzen-- 10--50g balls Colour #5
Needles: 3.25mm & 4mm
I think I started this 2 weeks ago and it seemed to just fly off the needles. I even matched up the stripes pretty good, with very little waste. I will admit, there was a little bit of spit splicing goin' on to accomplish this.And can you believe these buttons! It's like they were made for this colourway. I'll be delivering this to Julie on Saturday, so if you want to see it up close, please pop in.
Now, I'm back to the cardigan for the alpaca farm, pictures soon.

And I finished the top down version of my raglan baby sweater, and I even got down the rough draft. Once I punch in a couple of more sizes and set in some pictures I'll post it in my side bar.And because I have no idea what the gender of the baby is, it's plain old vanilla and duck buttons.
My poor son was working all the way out in BC over Thanksgiving, and he missed out on his momma's turkey dinner. So we did it up on Wednesday had all the trimmings. The only problem is Mr. D is still away and I've had too eat a lot of leftovers by myself. (Well, Lady dog has helped a little).
So today, I did up a big pot of homemade turkey soup.
Best thing on a grey day like today. Mmmmmmm!!! I'll have to find someone to share it with.
Wait till you see what I'm knitting up for the Alpaca Farm.

Yarn: Tofutsie--less than 1 ball. colour 785
This is a great pattern to knit. Easy to memorize, and knit up quick. The only thing I did differently was use 4 needles instead of 5. That way your stitches worked out 22, 22, 22.
Today was also a day of hard decisions....while trying to straighten out my wall o' wool, I came to the conclusion that it will take forever to knit with everything I have in that room. Sooooooooo....I grit my teeth and weeded out some yarns and am listing them on ebay. (EGADS!!!!!)
I think I better go lie down now!
