Slogging Away

I admit. I'm still not done with my MIL's Christmas scarf. I'm about 1/2 way. The road to hell is paved with good intentions, right? I'm knitting a variation on Wisp out of Malabrigo laceweight.

Wisp Scarf

It's more purple than in the photo. There are alternating sections of garter stitch and fisherman's lace. I think it'll look really good when I open the lace up with blocking. I really hope I'm done by Mother's Day!

I placed an order with The Loopy Ewe that, get this, did not include yarn. Can you believe it???

Mug Front

I had to have one of these travel mugs. So cute!

Mug Back

Yarn Earrings

Beautiful yarn ball earrings from Designs by Romi. These are so pretty. They look like yarn to me but they aren't so literal that they're kitschy. (Not that I don't love kitsch.)

Yesterday I did a Denver developmental study on my friend's 4 year old twins. They were so cute and super fun to play with. But I had to take a serious nap when they were done with me. They probably ran around the rest of the day without skipping a beat!

Dude I LOVE THESE! Must haves in my book!!!

Its a good thing that the loopy ewe is out of mugs or I'd be all over it:)

In terms of Holiday Knitting I am behind as well. I still have square cake and a shawl that I hope to finish tonight for a good friend. This was a last minute add.

Oh, I'm pea green with envy. ;)
I wanted to get the earrings and coffee mug but resisted.

It's amazing how much energy kids have. I can just imagine what I could get accomplished if I had half the energy.

That's a great cup! My travel mug recently broke (apparently they *don't* bounce) - I may have to think about that one ;)

Lovely stuff from the EWE. I was going to pop a mug into my order, but then I remembered my DH complaining that we were overflowing with coffee mugs last week.....hmmm.
Lovely scarf!

Very cute travel mug! I'm _sure_ you'll finish that scarf soon(ish) - after all, just touching that malabrigo lace is a reward in itself!
