I am enjoying a lot of grandkid time!  Its a good thing I had a few days with them before the Uncles got here because then I am second choice! 

We brought up a 'tunnel' for Marsel's new cat.  Her and Nyki are getting along just fine and they are very entertaining to watch!

I warped up a black thread for 2 plastic bag totes and used black strapping-

wow, it sure does make the colors pop!  I am going to use the black again when I am back home.

I finished knitting one of the big  boy socks (our sons take after dad and this is another men's sized 15 sock!)but before I could cast on the mate,

 David asked if I could make him a new pair of fingerless gloves.  Of course, I cast on for them instead.
He watches me knit and likes to feed out the yarn so I can go faster!

Oh, yes, this is my birthday present from Bruce and Marsel.   Yeah, fiber!

This morning while the chatter of my grown children hummed around me, I made a few of the yarn potholder loom items which I will sew together for a doll shawl for Abigail.

I hope you are having a great day, too.


  1. I still can't get over the size of those socks.

    A dolly shawl!!! I love it.

    It sounds like you are having a wonderful Christmas!!!

  2. Merry Christmas to you and your family. Sharon

  3. Even when you at R & R you are productive! Love the pic of you and the grandkids. :D
    Merry Christmas!

  4. Merry Christmas!!! Have fun with the grandkids!!

    Nice job on those totes! I like the color combos. I'm going to weave a tote in January, so now I'm looking at plastic bags differently. (It's a group project with my weaving group - which is the only way I know what I'm doing in January!)

    What a knitter!!! Your family and friends are lucky to have you!

    Merry Christmas!


  5. Oh, I'm so happy you are the one spinning the BFL top. I love the dark blues and really need to dye some of it up just for me!

    You know, Marcel's new kitty looks very much so like our 'Miss Kitty'! I think the kitties might be dopellgangers for each
