Oh it was a nice Christmas! We took lots of pictures, but I think this one sums it up pretty well.
He had a great time. We had dinner with friends which was also nice. They live across the street from us so it was a short journey. Davey had a wonderful time playing with his friends there.
So we are just relaxing today – and all week. Today I’ve got to go to the library and make a quick stop at the store, but that’s it!
I finished my first pair of mittens last night. The pattern is called Lofty Wool Cable Mittens. I made them with Lamb’s Pride Bulky, and they went so fast. This is the same yarn that I used for David’s sweater. I had enough of the off-white leftover to make these. I was afraid that I was going to run out of yarn though. They took nearly 2 skeins. They are fairly long mittens and should be very very warm. The pattern had a stockinette wrist so that it would roll. I could just feel snow rolling into my wrists at the thought of that, so I did a 2×2 rib instead.
Making the bulky cables with this yarn did make my hands just a little sore, but not too bad. I love how the cables stand out so well.
Today I am starting some slippers which I am going to felt. They are supposed to go pretty quickly too. I’m having fun with a few quick projects before I go back to some of the other projects which are waiting for me.
Happy Day after Christmas!
