Yeman was my Santa and she gave me some beautiful Patternworks Bretton yarn in an eggplant color. I have a project in mind...but I have to finish up a couple other things first - it's SO tempting to want to start on something right away though! Thanks Yeman.
Little Miss Casey came to the party with me and was much more social than last year - she even let Mara tickle and chase her...something she screamed about a year ago! Mara was so kind to give Casey a new backpack and stuffed Snowman...thanks again!
Over the weekend I worked, diligently, on the Tangled Yoke. Row 11 of the chart was my enemy. Not only did I have to backtrack on the first half (found a mistake about half way through it) but I got most of the way through the second half and had to back track all the way back to the beginning. Anyone who has knit this sweater knows all about the halves. All in all I figure Row 11 must have taken me a couple hours to knit. As it now stands, I've finished all but the Buttonhole band on the right side and need to sew the buttons and ribbon onto the left side and it will be done. I've already finished all the ends and underarms etc and it looks like it will fit quiet nicely - hooray! Here are some photos I took on my blackberry last night as a preview...
