And you will know us by our trail of yarn

Hope you are having a good holiday week. I have the week off, recovering after the flurry of last minute knitting. Finished and gifted were the cell phone cozy, the first paris loop ("Is it...a skirt?" my sister asked nervously), four airy scarves in KidSeta, two lace bookmarks, five crocheted snowflakes, one kerchief scarf, two miniweasleys, and two seed stitch scarves. With the exception of the paris loop, all were knitted in December. Which is why I'm still on the first sleeve of 3XChic, who has been patiently waiting since November.

This week I hope to finish that sweater and get some significant house cleaning/decluttering done. Yesterday I worked on the kitchen. Ah, the sense of accompishment! January plans call for a blue alpaca boucle sweater for me and a Z Weasley for my daughter. Already have the yarn for those, and am in need of an excuse to go to the yarn store during my vacation week.

Almost forgot, Clapotis is on the last straight rows, then into the home stretch. Showed it to my mom this weekend and she loved the pattern too. Also, my oldest sister made me a blue metallic fuzzy scarf for Christmas. Although I generally don't like "novelty" scarves, this one is smashing.

You are a crazy knitting maniac with all of that Christmas knitting. Congrats on finishing it all!
