My final completed knitting project this year was a set of four coasters using this pattern.
I had given all my cotton yarn (except the white and red) to my granddaughter this fall. thinking I was all coastered out. But needing a quick Christmas hostess gift, I decided to bring out the pattern again.
These red and white coasters remind me of peppermint candies!
I also managed to knit another scrubby with red and orange Scrubby Sparkle. Sorry, no pictures.
A great gift idea that only took about 4-5 hours to complete!
Yes, yes, yes, I’m back home!
But I can’t rest just yet. Our daughter and family are coming here on Friday for Thanksgiving. They will be here for the weekend then go to our S-I-L’s family for a few days and then head back to Colorado
It will be so much fun to see them again so soon (since I just left them) but I have a few things to do by Friday evening.
Are you expecting guests for Thanksgiving?
Did you do anything special to ring in the new year?
Mr. Aitch and I had a relaxing evening at home. We toasted in the new year then went to bed shortly after midnight. We are such party animals. NOT!
I did finally get a Holiday project finished right in time for the new year… 3-d Moravian stars.
I bought this kit that makes two 20-point stars several years ago and thought it would be a fun thing to do with the grands. And then decided I would make them myself.
Good thing, too as the limited instructions were very difficult for me to understand without going online for help.
But I soldiered on and finished both stars.
I hung them in the dormer windows in the two front bedrooms Monday evening.
We live on a hill and it’s hard to get a picture of our house from the street but here is a shot of the front. You might be able to make out the stars in the half-round windows.
I just might leave them there all year.
Merry Christmas from us to you and yours!!!
Enjoy your day, focus on what you’ve got rather than on what you’ve not got, and remember the reason for the season.
