Monday, Monday



Seems like forever since I've posted but here I am....it's a lovely Monday with the sun shining and the temperature in the 70's (although in truth, I'd rather see it in the 50's but I'm the exception, not the rule). I've been knitting away like a mad person every chance I get and currently working on some Christmas gifts for members of my family. 
I'm also working on a gift for my daughter in law and can't post a picture of it here because she occasionally reads my blog.....isn't she one sweet DIL? Suffice it to say that her gift is on much smaller needles and is therefore, progressing a bit slower but I have no doubts that I'll finish it.

Yes, can you believe that even as I type, the Aran baby blanket is still on my needles but I do work several rows as often as possible so I'm working my way through my last (thank you, Lord) skein of Shelridge Farm merino and then it will be a wrap, both literally and figuratively.
That's about it for now and until next time, dear readers, be happy, healthy, and knit on!

How gorgeous! You are so talented! I'm really jealous with all that cabling. I'm still far to intimidated for it yet! What a lucky DIL you have!

Hi Laura,
Your Blanket is looking wonderful. I'm knitting a bit every night on the socks, and not much else. We've been busy with house related things, (like the tree falling on us) and things are finally falling in place .... LOL - that is not falling, but getting resolved! I love the winter too, but 65 is about perfect winter weather for me. I'd find 50 a bit cool.
I do like the color of the poncho. I better be thinking soon about the sweater for my DGD or she won't get one!

Hope all is well, and glad to see you posting again.

Your knitting is very beautiful Laura, you are very organised getting ready for Christmas. Lucky our Christmas is hot, so no one expects knits
