It all started with a phone call asking my mother what my step-father would like for Christmas. She said a nice black hat. I ran out and got some Lion Brand thick and quick and two days later had this:
so I made her a Fling Scarf.
I knit my mother a necklace from the kit she bought at Rhinebeck. I forgot to photograph the finished product but it looked a great deal like the kit photo. This was such an easy pattern, so soft, so pretty and quick nice looking gift.
Finally, there was a nice calming soft brown wool hat that kept me calm through all the December drama. I knit it not knowing who it was going to be for or even why I was knitting it when I have a deadline baby blanket on the needles. I needed something simple to knit on, something that kept my hands busy and when I cast off I found a very deserving person who felt honored to claim possession of the hat. All and all it was a good knitting month of flings but now I better get my tail in gear and finish the starfish blanket before Little Miss Mermaid comes.
Hope everyone had a very happy holiday. I think this was one of the best Christmas' we have had in a long time.
