Week long absence

Short on words... long on pictures... lots of Christmas stuff that still needs to be done.
A third pair of wristies are FINISHED and all wrapped up for Christmas. This pair is for GD#2's brother. He's 14 so I chose Berroco Comfort in jet black for it's washability. I know the photo's a little hard to see the detail, but I'm pleased with the way Dashing came out. Although for me I would have liked the hand part to go a little longer on the fingers, but Honey thought a guy would like them as they were. Also, this past week I worked on the finishing touches to this adorable little Bogga Bag. The Patons SWS was a little extra fuzzy after felting, but was easily remedied. Wonder who might be getting this for Christmas.... mmmmmm...I may have to keep this one for myself... we'll see.

Last up is an update on my own Christmas socks. I turned this heel this morning and am in it for the final stretch this weekend. Here's a with and without flash shot and neither of them are true to the colors.

Well, Honey just called and he'll be home very shortly from his pleasant trip to the mall - ha! So I guess I have to get going, there'll be wrapping to do.

Oooh, I love 'em all! I'd definitely have to keep that Booga for my own. (That's a great colorway - what is it?)

Wow! Everything is looking great!

You are making some good knit progress over there! Here is hoping it rubs off on me now!

Merry Christmas over there!!
