Cash for Some Stash!

I went to see my Mom in the nursing home today to give her and my dad their Christmas gifts. They loved the homemade stuff! In return, I got some cash as my Christmas gift. Yippee!!! I'm going to go to a yarn store and have some fun. Can't wait! I will go after my daughter leaves to go back to college. I'm always sad when she leaves, so this will be a real pick me up, something to look forward to!

I've been working on Fetching. I have one done. It's so pretty and soft. I like this pattern.

I'm hoping to get the second one done by New Years Day. I'm doing a knit-along that starts then and I need these needles. But at the rate I'm going, they should be done. The knit-along is for fingerless mittens, not this pattern though. They are fun to do and work up pretty quickly.

We would love to have you up north for our classes. And you are also welcomed to just stop in and say hi, or sit down and knit away with us.

Hugs, Kathy

Love your mitts! I'm going to try to make some soon, but haven't looked for a pattern yet!

Don't go too wild with that Christmas cash! I made the mistake of getting online and looking at yarn over Christmas....uh-oh...:)

Your Fetching looks AWESOME so far! Great work!

I'm excited to spend my Xmas cash on some stash, too. :)

Fetching looks great, it seems everyone is making these. I have had knitting detours lately. Hope to have details on my blog at some point. Happy New Year!
