Well, Christmas is almost here, and I am so excited. Honestly, we are doing a very low key Christmas because we are just sliding by with several jobs (I am almost done with the internship, almost done with the internship-it's a chant) but I still love this time of the year. I love driving at night and seeing all the homes decorated and this year we actually have a tree (that none of the pets have knocked down-yeah!). So, I promised some knitting updates, here they are-

My mom's Christmas present (she doesn't read my blog so I am cool with posting) it is a ribbed cowl in Misti Alpaca chunky and it is heavenly. Sunday and I were competiting to finished first and she beat me (hers was in the same yarn in a dark rusty red). I love this thing and I think she will love its smooshy character.

This is my everyday sweater. It is the Mr. Greenjeans pattern with no cables in Araucania Multi. I am enjoying this sweater and I can't wait to wear (I hope it fits nicely though I am taking some chances with it). If you haven't noticed I am not a huge fan of variegated yarns, I am just boring and okay with that. I love the splotches of colors.

Lastly, these are my mindless socks. I only have ten minute breaks at my other job and I need something I can knit relatively easy without care or concern and quickly. The jitterbug has a funny pooling to it that I guess most hand dyed sock yarns have. Anyways, I am not really concerned about finishing the socks they are more my anchor for sanity during my job.
