I've been a good knitter this year

Oh yes, I have! It's not even Christmas Day yet and look what I got!

Some absolutely fabulous laceweight yarn from Kelly. There's 1675 yards in that humble looking silk/yak yarn. I totally regretted not buying yarn at the Skaska stall back at Rhinebeck, but by the time we hit it I had spent all my available funds. Luckily Kelly was generous enough to gift me with some. Thanks Kel!!! I can NOT wait to knit something (or two things) out of it from the Victorian Lace book I got from my aunt, who also gave me the book of scarf patterns. I've been wanting this book for a long time and after looking through it again I'm very excited by the designs.

Today I'm madly finishing off a pair of socks for the brother, knitting a combination of patterns from the Easy Knitted Socks from my coworker. A very timely gift since I needed an easy pattern because I was starting the socks at the last minute.

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

You're very welcome!!! I couldn't believe it when you didn't buy any, but it worked it nicely for us both because I am pretty certain it would have languished in my stash for a very long time...I'm glad you like it and can't wait to see it when it grows up!

Merry Xmas dahling.
