Christmas is Coming.....too fast

Geez, I can't believe that next Friday it will be Christmas. I think I have all the presents I need (although a few haven't arrived yet....yikes!). I just have to wrap and pickup the cookies I ordered. Much easier than baking.

I have been busy and not knitting enough, but I was able to finish the prayer shawl I started last year. It's the basic prayer shawl pattern (k3,p3) and I used Lion Brand Homespun in Candy Apple Red with size 11 needles. This was the first prayer shawl I made and there are a few minor things I would do differently next time.

I also finished the December KAL in my dishcloth group. It's a cute pattern called the Wrapper Cloth by Rhonda White. I used a size 7 needle with peaches and cream peppermint yarn. It's a good cloth to wrap a bar of soap in for a present.

I am currently working on finishing a scarf and the last dishcloth of the year.

I did buy some new yarn. I got Debbie Bliss Aran Cashmerino in a purple colorway to make a shawl.

And some Silky wool in a purple colorway to make a vest. Guess I like purple.

I also got some Pima Petite yarn from Unique Sheep's Rubber Ducky club. The yarn color is Toy Land and I also got a candle and some soap with it.

It finally started snowing here today. It's hard to say how much we will get, but it's nice to be home and not have to worry about going anywhere. Guess, It's a good day to do some knitting.

I love the Rubber Ducky Club -- don't you?

I like the idea of a soap pocket; some people have imaginative little brains, don't they? Ü
