My birthday is tomorrow, do I get stuff too? :D

I'm working on a red scarf in Sidar Snowflake for my mother in law. Hopefully I get it done. This is one hard yarn to use! It's so soft though, that I think it will be worth it. I hope!

Wow, no kidding...blocking colorwork does really make all the difference. I just finished and it feels like a different hat! :D

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Jan and Ilikesoup!!

I'm almost finished with my KAL project - a hat I started on Friday night, done in a Manos colorway (my first adult hat!). Problem is this - I'm knitting along :XX: , totally enjoying the yumminess of the manos wool , and suddenly it occurs to me . The person I'm making this for (dh's ds) is a vegan . Does this mean he doesn't wear wool? :thinking: I'm afraid it does. :( The only way to find out if he wears wool or not is to kind of blow the surprise of a knitted Christmas gift. So I'm in a bit of a conundrum.

Oh well. DH really likes the hat and wants it if his son won't have it. I guess I need to decide if I'm willing to go ahead and knit another hat in a non-animal fiber, just in case.... :rollseyes:

[I'm trying to set a personal record for most number of smilies in one post....

Happy Birthday, Jan & ILikeSoup!!!


My Dec. project is a pair of socks for DD using Lion Brand Magic Stripes Jelly Bean that I had left over from my niece's hat. It knits up *much* nicer into socks ... duh huh ... maybe that's why it's SOCK YARN?!

I didn't *intend* for this to be my Dec. project, but since I've started them, and they're colorful, WHY NOT? :D

Edited to add picture ...

Whoa! That's really weird! Mine isn't really as bright as it looks in that picture. It's the fault of the really bad cell phone camera I used. I'll take a better picture when I have more time.

Right now I'm supposed to be putting on some make-up and getting ready to go to a Christmas party at Loyola. I'd rather be knitting on the sock.
