Lots of knitting time = Happy mommy

What a heavenly week of knitting bliss this has been. I also had the chance to try out some yoga and pilates classes this week, they kicked my butt! Here's a pic of a loopy scarf I finished this morning on the front porch of our new house, with Daisy. Also a pic of Ryan Christmas morning, don't ya love the beer shirt, a hand me down from Steve to Ryan. Santa left presents all the way up the stairs, sega games and then this archery set, one for Steve and Ryan. The boys had fun with it Christmas morning.

Late Christmas present shawl

Oh how I love me a quick shawl for instant gratification. Just blocked this mohair shawl tonight, a late Christmas present. I still have to finish the fringe yet. I guess you could say I was a little behind on knitted gifts this year. I took a trip to my fav lys today, knottygirl. I love how comfortable this store is, I could stay and knit for hours too bad there is that work thing in the way, geesh. I fell in love with a new yarn that Debi is carrying its called Ozark handspun, the artisan's website is really interesting. www.ozarkhandspun.com.

Thank you Kerry!

My unsecret pal Kerry is the best. She sent me this lovely package before Christmas, enclosed are the sweetest stitch marker charms, sock yarn, pattern and needles. I am a bit intimidated by the small gauge of the sock yarn but have successfully started them. Thanks so much Kerry for everything. Hope your Christmas was great.
