I hope you had a nice Christmas even if you don't
really celebrate the day.
After I did the blog last week, I started a Jason
hat. I knew it was fast, and I wanted to make it for my
cousin for Christmas. I knit and knit on Sunday and Monday.
Finished on Tuesday and blocked and dried it.
Super Tajmahal that I've had in my stash for a long time.
I added some Cumulus yarn to it to make it soft. The cumulus is a teal
green and the Tajmajal is a forest green. I'm quite happy with the
Here is my cousin wearing it, not the greatest picture, but
she loved it.
Here is a picture of dad wearing his Irma hat.
He put it on right after opening.
My brother loved his socks. I usually just make him a hat, but this
year he requested socks.
(I wish his feet were smaller!!)
Joey loved his Christmas socks! His feet love the Panda Silk, and they
don't make it anymore. I actually have a new bamboo blend yarn to
try for his 2020 socks.
Here is Tiffany in her Buffalo check hat.
Yukon Campfire Hat pattern.
I did not talk about this in the blog before, because she
sometimes reads it.
Her dog, Max, is very photogenic
Had a lot of yarn leftover, so made a matching cowl.
Cast on 120 stitches.
Mark put his helmet liner on right away. He can be very picky,
and honest (sometimes not good) but he loved it and said he will
definitely wear it at work because he gets so cold.
Casey also got a Yukon Campfire hat.
She actually has boots that match!

I do not have pictures of mom, Vicky or Joe wearing their socks.
Joe wore his for two days so I had to wash them, and they are currently
The kids got me a camera for Christmas, so the rest of my
pictures are from that.
The very first picture I took was of my little Mickey. LOL
I'm working on socks for me!
I shared in the blog a couple of weeks ago.
I am knitting top down.
Using German short row heel.
the pattern is very dense so I'm not going to use it for the
foot. I'm using a variation of one row of the pattern.

I have so much Cumulus yarn left. I got it for a shawl that
I decided not to make. So I started a very brainless scarf.
you know how I love stripes!
Just ending the blue and starting the green color.
Will carry the copper color with the green, then next
will be green and ???? I haven't decided.
This is 8" so far.
Going to put stitches on a string and block it to see how much longer
it needs to be.
Ruth is working away on her sweater.
Pattern is Colors for a Cloudy Day by Connie Peng.
She tried it on yesterday and the fit is good!!!
Martha made a Jason hat for her son and got it done for
Martha cut the blue bottom off of her sweater and is adding
more inches to it. Here is a sweater she made before that she
is using as a template.
This is the pattern:
Remember she finished this a while ago.

Joe and I went away for two days for our Christmas present
to each other.
We saw Earth Wind and Fire at Turning Stone Casino.
They sure make a lot of music! I loved the trombones and trumpets.
The lead singers sing like they are in their 70's (they are) LOL
But totally entertaining.
Have a great week dear blog readers. I'm back to work on Thursday
so I hope I can get a lot of knitting done before then.
It's currently raining buckets here...better than snow I guess.
