Warm and toasty
It was a very knitterly Christmas! The grrs are modeling the mittens (thrummed or not) and Waterspun Weekend hats I've knit for them over the past few months. Scarves, from left to right: Ai is wearing a lacy scarf that Kt knit for her; Kt sports a scarf from Target given to her by Mdd, and Mdd is wearing a soft, fluffy, drop-stitch scarf that Ai made for her. Woo. No one will get cold 'round here.
For the first time ever, DH and I were awake before the kids on Christmas morning, thanks to the kitties. The phone rang just after 9 -- one of Mdd's friends with news of an exciting present -- and the grrs began to appear.
I was finally able to get a shot of Kt's finished Point 5 scarf. This was inspired by the very scarf from Target that Mdd gave her for Christmas. She used two hanks of yarn, knit a narrow garter scarf, and tied on bits of yarn at each end. She has received lot of compliments on this scarf, and why not? I think it's a very striking scarf.
It was a great holiday weekend with lots of family visiting and way too much eating. I wished DH a happy birthday yesterday and then waved to him and the grrs as they set off on an adventure combined with business trip to the Gulf. While I enjoyed "The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou" last night with my sister and nephew, they called with news of a broken down van (some sort of belt problem they think) at a toll booth and an unexpected overnight stay in Illinois. I'm awaiting news this morning -- hoping and praying that it's a little thing and not a big thing and that they can be on their way shortly.
