Welcome December

Welcome December, though it does not feel like it.
So nice and balmy here in Western NY...50's all week.
But, I close my eyes and pretend it's a normal
December and there is a blizzard outside, and I sit
and knit. Not much to show. I've had a tired, busy
week at work. Here is a picture of the cowl blocked.
I love it!!

These pictures were taken in the bathroom mirror
and not very good. But trust me its nice.
(thanks, Ruth!!).

I'm ready to kitchner the first sock and can start
on the 2nd one. I started these for Joe a long time
ago, and don't really care if they are done for
Christmas or not. (no picture).

Ruth had done some spinning and knitting.
The spinning is wonderful, and the socks are from
our trade at Rhinebeck.

Martha has started a complicated sweater.

and she's coming along nicely with it.

she did a swatch, and that helped tremendously.

I'm getting ready for Christmas. Shopping is about
1/2 wrapping yet.
We put the fake tree up this week - Joe helped
a lot with that.

Look who wants to be my Christmas present....
his favorite place to nap now.

When I get up in the morning, the floor is
covered with red bows....he must be a
midnight elf.

We went and got the real tree today, will decorate
on Tuesday. Even though it was 50 out, I wore
the scarf, hat and mittens I made for Rhinebeck.
Tiffany told me I looked like a caroler from
"A Christmas Carol" she called me Carol
all day....LOL

That's about it here at Knitatation...
Happy Knitting and Merry Christmas dear
blog readers.
