Wow am I ready for a weekend. We went to Texas to visit my family for a week. Now I'm just trying to catch up and be ready for Christmas. After work yesterday I did a big clean and feel much better. A messy house makes me nervous. I almost had a melt down Wednesday--now that the house is clean I am much happier.
I even had time to knit last night. I started the second Dragonfly sock. I ordered another skein of Cascade Heritage Wave. I thought the color changes would be repeated though the skein, but no, it starts purple then gets light and goes to a gray and black. So the first sock is purple, the second sock would be gray/black/purple sort of. I like my socks to match, so I ordered another skein. Bummer, because I was really wanting more of the gray/black with a bit of purple. But on the flip side, I will have enough yarn to knit another pair of socks that will be more in the color I had originally wanted.
I did finish all the hats, but forgot to take a picture of the finished monster hat. We sent them to our god daughter and her family and they sent a pic of all the kids wearing the hats, which was a very sweet thank you.
I ended up knitting another quick hat, (no picture) the Sophia Beanie. One of the ladies at church said, "Oh you knit? Would you knit a pony tail hat for my daughter?" I thought that was kinda bold to just ask me to whip one out, but I decided I could do it as we were driving 8 hours to Texas and back.. Gave it to her the other night. I hope the daughter likes it.
Have a blessed and merry Christmas!!
