My precious Touch Me Due arrived today

This is going to make the yummiest scarf, I can just tell. It's even prettier in person than it is online. And it's oh, so soft and squishy. Now where's my copy of Scarf Style? Maybe I'll cast on tonight for the Vintage Velvet. Ooh, it's going to be so pretty, I can't wait!

Ribbit, ribbit

My final Christmas present went to the frog pond again. Luckily, I don't think I'm going to see her until after New Year's, and it's deadly quiet at work this week, so I think I can finish it by the end of the week.

My co-worker whose husband is in the ICU is coming in to work a half day today, so I can give her her present then. It's a lovely scarf from a Colorsong Yarn kit, in a colorway with teal, burgundy, and gold. I normally don't like fringe on my scarves, but this one cried out for it. I took a picture before I wrapped it this morning, but, like always, forgot to bring the camera to the computer. ;)

A lovely card

I received a lovely holiday card from my knittee in the Scarf Exchange. I'm so glad that she likes her scarf. (P.S. It's perfectly safe to wear in the rain, it's superwash.)

I finally got a package out to my secret pal in the Secret Pal 9 exchange. I still have another package worth to send, but I think I'll send that first thing in January.

I just purchased enough Touch Me Due (in purple, of course) for Vintage Velvet from Scarf Style. Yummy! I love Touch Me, although I prefer it in its unfelted state, but I'm going to risk it for Vintage Velvet.

I'm alive, really!

It's been a crazy couple of weeks, and I haven't posted at all. Anyway, I am down to the wire with Christmas presents. I have one that I haven't even started yet. I think I'll be buying her something, rather than knitting. I have 2 packages that must go out today if they are to arrive in time. I haven't decided if I trust the postal service, or if they'll be going 2nd day air via UPS.

One of my dear friend's husband is in the hospital with pneumonia. It seems there is something in the air here, as everyone seems to have a loved one in the hospital for one reason or another.
