Look at the new member of our family! I just ordered him on, an early Christmas gift from my good friend Lei and my husband Billy! He is going to arrive on Tuesday night! I cannot wait. Haven't thought of a name yet, he is a tiny little guy 2 1/2 pounds right now...but he is a little chunkster, and loves to eat. :) I will post pics on Tuesday night when he arrives...I just can't wait. Thank you to Lei and Billy for my wonderful Christmas gift of a new fur baby!

You scored as Couch Potato Cat. Decorative pillow? No, that'd be you sitting on the couch, even still. Hmm. . . I'm guessing you have Web TV.

8 Christmas Gifts Done! Yippee!
I finished 8 handmade/hand painted velvet little 6 x 6 inch purses for the girls I work with. It is hard to tell by the photo, but their faces are all glittery and there are crystals in their eyes. And their hats are made with lace and real fur.

Just in time for the movie. PHEW! I finally got my Harry Potter scarf done! WOW is that a lot of stockenette stitch! I prayed for a knitting machine about half way through...but in the end it was worth it, I just love it...I used the pattern from... I used Brown Sheep Nature Spun Worsted (100% wool) yarn in Gryffindor Colors :brick road (#225) and sunburst gold (#308).

I can't wait until Friday for the movie to come out!

Here is a thin little scarf I made to go along with the gold and cream tank I posted a few entries ago. I think it turned out so cute. Small and glittery, perfect for the 16 year old it is going to.

Bob got a gift from Hawaii yesterday (as did I), he is modeling it he not the cutest little guy ever? I just love him to pieces.

Thank You Lei for everything your sent is very much appreciated! We just loved are awesome!

Another Gift done! Ok, this one is for Emma, a daughter of my friend Michelle. I love how this turned out!

I used cascade 220 in black and I added Pallete by Knit Picks in Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple and Black. I carried the cascade throughout the entire poncho, and kept changing the knit picks colors. I did a picot edging on the "collar" and I think it turned out super cute. I am hoping to get another mini one done for her for her American Girl doll for Christmas.

Earlier in my blog I showed a rainbow snake scarf...this is Emma's brother Blair's they are both rainbow colored this Christmas!

Look what I am...:)

Knitting Guru
You appear to be a Knitting Guru. You love knitting
and do it all the time. While finishing a piece
is the plan, you still love the process, and
can't imagine a day going by without giving
some time to your yarn. Packing for vacation
involves leaving ample space for the stash and
supplies. It can be hard to tell where the yarn
ends and you begin.

Look what I did today! Yeah, I know it is early...but if it was up to me, I would have the tree up all year round. It just makes the house feel so warm and fuzzy!
