Finally Christmas is Over!! I Can Show You...

First? The Christmas gifts that were "top-secret!"
Ice Blue Spiralucious from Anne's wonderful pattern. I used a 146 yard skein of Blue Sky Alpaca Silk in icy blue for this one...

And then another:
made with a wonderful oatmeal tweed alpaca from Misti Alpaca (also a 146 yard skein).

These made up in short order, and make delightful gifts. If you can only afford a pricey yarn in a small amount? This is the gift to create with it...appreciated by everyone and if I do say so myself? Beautifully modeled by my sis and sis-in-law.
(nope won't tell you who is who)

Then, because I could, I asked Dear Daughter to model Star of Evening for me...
She showed up in that wonderfully coordinated teal sweater all by herself and had no idea I was going to put this on her. (Sometimes things happen the best way when we don't plan, you know?)
And the money shot!
(as Anne would say)

I guess it appears to the casual observer that I'm enamoured of Anne Hanson's designs?

That would be correct.

Wow, nice work (as usual) Sallee. You are a true pro! All I managed this year were some adult booties for gifts.

Love the idea of a knitting room. For me, I'm hankering for a craft room with a door to keep the kitties from eating the wrong items LOL. Can you relate!!!!

Hugs, G

Wow is all I can say! Star of Evening is just stunning (and a fitting tribute to the Meezer - you can tell her I said so), but the little laces are delightful too. Great job!!

Beautiful projects! Anne's patterns are wonderful. I have started the Tudor Grace scarf, and it is a fun knit and is really attractive.

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.
