Welcome December!!

Another Christmas present complete..
although I've not yet done much mall shopping or online ordering..I've kept the needles fairly busy..this is made from SWTC Phoenix Soy Silk/Candy...well how appropriate is that??? Being the chocolate lover that I am...this sucked me right in!! It was a really fun knit..went quickly and turned out quite beautifully...it's all laundered and ready to wrap/bag.
I also completed this 'gal'...she's made with SWTC Bamboo/Intensity...she looks and feels absolutely fantastic...
soft but rich!! Another Christmas pressie...and both have a bit of yarn left over..the mind is actively churning with possibilities for the remaining 'stash'...
I have an awesome scarf..very male going as well as a stocking cap...another scarf and a new dishcloth...OH...and another Moebius...and 2 more skeins ready to be cast on...Where will it end...I can only hope...it ends with the bind off...Happy Knitting to all!!~~~

Oooohhhh Ahhhhh....I love the new photos of you, Mike & Nik. Your blog looks wonderful.

Your SWTC projects are gorgeous, as always, and I'm looking forward to seeing a photo of the manly scarf. I will knock at your door for that pattern post-holidays. :) Which one is the massage exchange or have you done that yet?

Have you seen the apple dishcloth pattern yet? It's adorable. I used Tahki for my last cloth and it flew off the needles; super easy knit up.

As for soap, Dianne, melt & pour, baby, melt & pour. It doesn't get any easier and the "fillers," lemongrass and lavender, can be purchased at The Well. (Of course the family will be told that I slaved over the stove using real lye and other explosives). Hee hee hee

Thank you Dana..My Best Cheerleader!! The manly scarf..haha..well, it's really just some garter/purl, but the yarn is quite masculine..and is knitting up nicely.
The massage exchange has been done and gone..I just need to go lay down and let her pay me:)
I have seen and done the apple(my 1st one)..I love it BUT I've not done it with Tahki...YUM!! I love when it flows..I've also done an 'Illusion kitty one'..anchor, dog, cat, LOVE, VA, Squirrel, Lighthouse,snowflake..and I'm currently doing a Family one..which I can't wait to see some pattern get started. When I get bored for cloths, I google dish cloth patterns..and BOOM!!
Trust me..these are the best gifts you can give..no one is ever unhappy with them. I have a neighbor that would buy them faster than I can knit them..which isn't very fast, so I could not feed the animals...lol
Keep me entertained with your work..it's great eye therapy!! Hugs!!~~
