Christmas Gifts so far........
I haven't been here in a while. Lost my mom last month. I am back at it trying to get some gifts done. Did this tiny capelet and hat for our grandaughter and the socks are for one of my sons. Hard at work on another pair for other son, a vest for DH and a "Snake Scarf and hat" for grandson!

Sorry to hear about your Mom. Looks like knitting has been part of the healing process -- you've been busy! Great job on everything.

I am so very, very sorry to hear about your mom. I lost my mom several years ago and I know it's very hard. Please know that I will keep you in my prayers and am here if you need to chat.

Your projects are lovely

Thank You
Thank you ladies. I really appreciate the condolances and prayers. The knitting does help. I am nearly finished with the "snake" (a kit from Morehouse) and will post when it's done. It's good to be "back"!

I'm so sorry for your loss.

I hope the knitting continues to help with the grieving process.

Your projects look great, I just love that big pink button!

Very sorry about the loss of your mom. Those days when you think, out of habit... Oh, I'll call mom and tell her about that! But then knowing mom isn't there. (((HUGS))) Grief takes a toll on the body so be kind to yourself!

The gift for your granddaughter is lovely! I love knitting for my granddaughter The sock colors on the socks are great too. What yarns did you use?

You are the nicest people I know and we are all over the map! I so appreciate all of your kind comments. MamaBear you are so right. It is even more hard for me because she was with us so I keep going down the hall to check on her. My parents both lived into their nineties and traveled all over the world many times during a very good 65 yr. old marriage; had numerous friends all over the world and in NC and never just sat at home. Even so, I miss her very much.

I used Lamb's Pride wool/mohair (Pistacio)for the hat and capelet(stash from one for future DIL) and Treking for the socks. Sorry I cannot remember the colorway of the Treking. I'll find out for you. I usually like to match the socks but my LYS ladies told me it would be so hard and they are handmade so what the heck. I agreed.

Thanks again for all the kindness.
