Ishbel is blocked and drying. It's an amazing feat that I actually started a project for a specific gifty day and got it done without having to press all the way to a ridiculously last minute finish. It feels good. I'm hoping my Mom likes this. I've been writing a card to go with it in my head the past few days. Hopefully she won't cry, although it's almost guaranteed...Mom's are like that you know.
I am so over knitting lace after this project though. Not sure what my problem was but I unknit as much as I knit once I got into the lace. I finally just gave up and bound off. I think it looks ok though, if you don't look too closely. I love the yarn and the color of the yarn. It was dyed by my friend Rita at Yarn Hollow. My brain has been so tired from work that I had difficulty paying attention to my yarn-overs.
So I'm free from her and have cast on a new red Brambles hat. Red always makes me happy.
StitchesInTime. I can't wait to get this baby humming tomorrow. I already have a new quilt design swirling around in my head that might involve some sugar skulls.
I managed to get all my gift shopping done on the web this year. All but one gift arrived on time and the one that didn't...no biggie. I'm going to plan B.
All of us here at Chez B would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas. May all your dreams come true. Have a safe weekend and remember to do something fibery!
