Merry Christmas!

Happy holiday to everyone!  I wish you all a warm place to be, family to be with, good health and peace.  I'll be at my mom's house where all good food comes from, and all I'll need is a place to nap between plates of food! 

Meanwhile, I managed to finish the Multnomah shawlette:

The colors are so pretty.  This isn't really a shawl, but a scarf which is easier to wrap around your neck under your coat.  Hopefully it will keep the recipient warm and that she gets a lot of use out of it.

This little beauty was made with Cherry Tree Hill supersock, US #3 needles (I wish I had used US #4 needles).  It took one skein of yarn, with a little left over, and if you put your markers in the right place and pay attention to your yarn overs then this is a quick knit.  I'm math challenged, so I had a few false starts where I had to rip it out, but I trust that all of you can count to 10 without getting confused.  I can't.

Now I'll move on to my next thing - whatever that is.  I was going to make a hat with the much maligned Dried Flowers that I spun, but I seem to have misplaced it.  Oh well, it's not the only yarn/fiber that's lost around here. I'll find it.

Here's hoping that all of you managed to keep your handmade pledge and finish your holiday knitting on time.

    I hope the one receiving Multnomah will like it, it's a lovely little shawl, the colors are gorgeous.

    I also hope you found a place to nap. I need a nap too, but it's too late for that now; I'll just wait for bed time. :o)
