Top: Little Scallops: a Christmas gift, a bit big for my littlest scallop but that's a much better problem than the other way around. My first pom-pommed hat and my second stranded project. I thought my tension turned out pretty well especially considering the yarns are two different weights.
Foxy Cowl (Ryder Raccoon with orange and black) all woven in and happy modeled by my biggest scallop. I'll be taking a long break from bulky yarn. It makes my hands tingly and sore and I was thrilled to cast on that little pink hat after three in a row chunky knits.
I participated in Donna's knitters swap this past month and my goodies came in the mail today from my partner; this lovely red yarn from The Woolen Rabbit was included! So excited and in love with the color... I always love the stage of dreaming about what a yarn will become, this gorgeous hank of possibility. It almost perfectly matches the red of my everyday winter coat so this may become a hat for me. What a sweet and precious surprise that I will treasure.
Ten days. The countdown is in single digits tomorrow and I am so thankful that most of errands are now done. Many of the gifts are under the tree and the little eyes keep shining. Our Jesse tree is filling up with ornaments and I keep filling up with the amazing truth that my brokenness actually makes me fit in among God's chosen family.
Linking up with Ginny for Yarn Along today as I do every Wednesday. What are you crafting? Did you see that Tin Can Knits is giving away a free pattern every day until Christmas? I missed the Antler Mittens yesterday which bummed me out, but got the gorgeous Sea Wall socks yesterday! Get today's pattern for yourself by visiting their blog!
