Sometimes, it's a challenge to come up with a title for the
blog. As I'm sitting here looking outside, it is very gray.
Thinking about this week's pictures, the knitting is gray also.
So an appropriate title I guess.

 I am decreasing toe in 2nd sock...Im glad I added the
gold color. Actually had enough yarn, but it's a nice break
in the craziness of the pattern...I hope to finish up tonight.

Working a little bit on Alice's CapeletWill concentrate on this
once the sock is done.  I would like to wear it on Christmas.

Yarn came for Just for You Two Mystery pattern. It's a cute idea.
Knit one hour (or so) a day for 7 days and you have a finished
project. Bulky or chunky yarn. Mine is Encore cause it's cheap.

Click here to see the last one, Just for you One .
It is a shawlette.

I thought the one we are doing was a cowl, but now looking at all of that yarn,
  I'm not sure....what do you think? Share your thoughts
in the comments section.  Ruth and maybe  Martha are joining.

Ruth is working along on her sweater...
up to armhole in one section....

and she made a couple of Christmas ornaments..CUTE !
Martha is making the Jackaroo sweater from Knitty.

 She is not doing the pockets.  Yarn is from Rhinebeck last year.
Definitely not gray....nice and bright and cheerful !

Here are a few pictures from the first family Christmas
party of the year:

Yes, they ate too many carbs:

A Pair

 I am working on the 2nd sock of the pair.
Did not get far this week.

Suddenly I had a craving to make a pair of EZ mitered
Noro Kureyon yarn. Have a lot in stash of same color.
I kept thinking all week I could make three pair before
Christmas, but it's not happening.

It's almost impossible to make a matching set.
But I like the mismatched...
Still have a pair of thumbs to make.
They are long. maybe too long.
Not sure if I will gift them or not.  They would be a great present.

Ruth is on vacation this week and started a cowl in Rowan
Felted Tweed yarn.  Norden Cowl.

Martha worked a lot on a sweater this week but just ripped it.
She is looking for a new pattern for the yarn.  I hate when that

We have a pair of deer in our front yard.

I made pizza on Friday night. And it was like two pizzas in one
Veggie on one side and hawaian on the other side. Nice pair combo.

A pair of beautiful sunset pictures from tonight.

and another pair

and yet another

Got the 2nd of two tress -  now we have a pair.
This is the real one. Joe and I had a great time picking it out.
Have a great week....whatever you do, do it in  pairs...much
more fun!
