Ready or Not–Christmas is almost here

Well, either you are ready or you are not.  I’m just about there.  All my presents are wrapped, food is bought, and I think that except for a few odds and ends, I can actually relax tomorrow.  Maybe I will even get time to knit.

Tomorrow night, my family will be visiting for Christmas.  We usually order out for pizza and I have some snacks ready plus cookies of course.  Christmas Day, my father-in-law will be up for dinner.  Then it’s all over for another year.

I did finish the one Christmas gift I was making.  I made a prayer shawl for my Mother-in-law, who is in a nursing home.  I used Marble Chunky in color MC15 with size 13 needles.  I really liked this yarn and I’m now working on a shawl for me.

I also finished the last dishcloth of the year in my Monthly Dishcloth group.  I used size 7 needles with Peaches and Crème yarn in Powder puff.  The pattern is called Snowy drops by Andi Worthy.

After all the hustle and bustle of this week, I will be glad for next week when I can relax and knit.  I don’t even care if it snows next week.  I’m ready for a blizzard.

Happy Christmas! It's after lunch, here, and everyone's having a snooze except me and the baby. It's lovely in Aus; about 25 degrees Celcius.
