december twenty

Yesterday I treated myself to some Koigu on behalf of my husband for the holidays. Ariadne carries Koigu and it's just delicious.

White visiting MollyAnn I also got this knitting notebook, it's just too cute and a great size to fit into my knitting notions pouch. (Which I'm in the middle of finalizing).

Mack's been coughing since mid-week - and at times in a really cranky mood. But I caught him today in a good mood mid-afternoon, so I took advantage to take some pictures. (I also don't feel so hot today, woke up with a very sore throat, and just feel blah, hopefully it'll pass).

Today we took care of a lot of things around the house - to prepare for Sean's birthday party tomorrow. One of the things on the list was to take down Sean's blinds in his room and put up his new curtains. I found this material and viola - he's got all the Canadian hockey teams on his curtains. He loves it. He keeps bouncing around, screaming "hockey"!

I also have pictures to show you of the back of the Moss Block Cardigan. Now to cast on the front! Looks like it'll be a quicker knit than I thought. (Just got side tracked while knitting it)

This evening while Jamie went to hockey, I prepared all the Christmas/Chanukah/Birthday gifts into the den, and started wrapping.

Three hours later, you have this!
All organized and ready to go!

Today I put in stock this beautiful Yummy yarn by FibraNatura. Oh, it's delicious. Gotta love sock yarn, right?? (I think sock yarn is about 90% of my personal stash!

Happy Saturday!
