Owl Fingerless MittsOk I did not get them finished for Christmas, I’m almost 1/2 way done with the 2nd one, but here is a picture of the 1st one I did get done.  She loves owls and was excited when I told her I was making these for her, same color as the hat I made her last year.  This was a skein of the polypay I had processed into yarn last year.  Still have a fleece I need to send off to have processed from this spring if my car will be nice and not need any repairs for a while :P.

I have a scarf yet to make then I will be done with Christmas stuff and back to the other things I need to get done :).

 



Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas

8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.

9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will to men.

15 And it came to pass, the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.

16 And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger. (St. Luke 2:8-16)

May you and your families have a very blessed Christmas Day.

First Snow winter 2016-17  This was 3 weekends ago.  Yeah I’m a little late getting this in :P.  We got about 3 1/3 inches over the weekend.  We have had snow now every weekend since, about 2 1/2 to 4 inches each weekend.  Tired of snow already, and tonight it is suppose to be -18 F ambient temp and with wind chills about -35.  Is it spring yet?

Hand Dyed polypay yarn

I have not finished the socks I was working on (tho I am at the heel on the second sock) but I have to get started on this other project because it is a Christmas present and time waits for no man (or woman :P).  I don’t think she reads my blogs but just in case I wont go into what it is but I dyed it to match the hat I made her last year.  I will start working on this project tomorrow.

I hope everyone is staying warm and that you are well and happy.  :)
