All I have left to do on the slippers for my MIL is seam up the inner & outer soles on both slippers! The knitting is done, thank God too b/c it was starting to hurt my hands & on up into my arm. Wierd. Now I'm gonna get Jacob's teachers gifts bagged up & fix lunch and then maybe seam the darn things-wont take long, just that I'm tired of looking at them, I really wanna knit my sweater. And a pair of socks & I really would like to knit myself a hat, any ideas?

for the QOTD: we really dont have many traditions...We decorate the tree as a family, we make cookies, let the kids decorate them & set them out for Santa along with a cup of milk. Usually we will open 1 gift on Christmas eve & then the rest Christmas morning. We try to go to Christmas Mass on Christmas Eve, but that's hard b/c so many do that (who dont have kids) and so the Church is PACKED for the 2 'children's' masses. Anyway then CHristmas morning there's no waiting, as soon as the kids are all up then we open gifts, then Brian fixes a breakfast & then we get ready to hit the grandparents houses. Makes for a long day but it's good for the kids. I'm ready to take all the Christmas stuff down a few days after Christmas; last year it was all down the day after & put away...it'd been up since the day after Thanksgiving & I was ready to have my living room back. The same will happen this year too-darn kitty like to climb up in the first 3 tiers of branches; drives Brian batty!

I decided to knit for myself today and I just whipped up this hat...it was so fast and so easy. I still can't add picts sooo hopefully tonight or tomorrow I can show you guys. I used a deep dark red...I want to get back to my mittens and socks but can't just yet...I keep thinking of others that I need to whip something up for ...I want to knit a couple more of the berets it was hard to chose which one

Sue~Did you use the 110 yards? I have enough of my deep red to make something small and thinking about making one of these

Thank you for the comments on the blog and stocking...I've had that one ready to go since April...but have I made the green/white one for Isaiah?? No

I had some Knit Pick's Andean Silk in my stash...I thought it would be warmer than cotton this time of year

Still a yarn I can't get in the UK. How annoying is that. I think I have some Debbie Bliss aran something, can't remember. just remember it is very soft, may use that. showed Kamilia the hat and she wants one. She saw the name Beret and got very excited, she is going on a school trip to Paris in June/July. I did tell her that it may just be a bit to warm to wear to Paris in the summer.

Dustina: The yarn I used was Patons Shetland Chunky Tweed. The ball has 123 yds. I have just made a little coffee cozy with what was left over and I still have about 8 yards. Hope this helps.

Forgot to show this. this was a last minute gift. started it yesterday just before midday and finished around 4pm. Then wrapped it up with the soap so Kamilia could give it to her Music Teacher at the choir concert at 6pm.
sorry the photo is a bit bad, had to take the photo when it was dark outside.

QOTD: Our family decorates the tree on the Sunday after Thanksgiving (and anyone who can't be there is smote by lightening bolts and threatened with disinheritance). Sometime between then and Christmas, we do a small gift exchange with Great Grandma and her sister. On Christmas eve, we go to mass, then to grandma and grandpa's house for dinner and while the parents do dishes the kids pass out gifts, and then have our primary gift exchange with all of my cousins on my mom's side, Then we go home and have another gift exchange with all three grandparents, sometimes some cousins (same side of the family... it gets complicated), and the immediate family. Christmas day we usually go to dad's aunt's house to hang out for a few hours, then we have a giant dinner at our place (giant as in amount of food, even though there's only 7 people who come). Sometimes we go to midnight mass, particularly if I'm singing, but I haven't in a while.
I have two favorite hat patterns, Julie: Shedir (from Knitty's Breast Cancer Awareness issue... this is the hat that in fall and winter is pretty much grafted to my head. It's too big but I've gotten a lot of compliments on it) and the double-knit hats I do (the pattern on my blog). I made myself a double-knit one but it's just a little too small... I wear it when I've washed the Shedir and it's drying.
Karina - awww that's cute!

Alright well pizza just arrived so good night everyone!

Karina My snickerdoodle recipe is a lot like Gina's but we use butter instead of shortening. (Very small difference, we just like the taste of the butter)

Your Santa wash-clothe is nice!
