Thank You!

All your lovely complements on Grace are so appreciated! I'm thinking she's a nice addition to my bag line, myself, so I'm happy you think so, too! Right now, would you email me if you'd like to order? Birdsong notified me early this a.m. (probably late last p.m. for her out there on the West Coast!) that we missed adding Grace to the drop-down menu on the order form - so I apologize for that, and my webmaster is working on the fix! Until then, just shoot me an email, okay?

I thought I'd show you a last-minute gift I decided to start over this past weekend:

That's an Anne design - the Fine Cabled Mitt. I'm knitting it in a skein of Wildefoote that was given me some time ago. I'm pretty sure it was in an early swap I participated in, but forgive me, I've forgotten which one...nonetheless, as there was only one skein, I couldn't make socks, and I'm not (as I've said before) in love with this yarn. It does make nice mitts tho'. As you can see when compared to an earlier version -

This is a shot of the first one I knit, also in Wildefoote, in the Tomcat colorway. I wear these a lot.

But can you tell any other difference between the two? I knit the first pair according to the pattern size small, and it's really too large for me (mind you, I don't mind that on cold mornings!). But for the black one, I shortened the ribbings at top and bottom, and did 1 fewer cable repeat. It's a nicer version for my short hands! (And will suit the giftee as well. DD will now know they're NOT being made for her.)

Oh, and that's the Christmas manicure, Debi! It's Orly's Monroe's Red and I just had them done tonight - my first Christmas party is tomorrow - for our consumers at work. Then Saturday my client's annual party. Our office staff holiday luncheon is next week. I'm not sure the color will last till Christmas, but I can touch it up between now and then.

Are YOU getting in the Christmas spirit? I surely am!
(((hugs)))

Namaste

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
