One down...1,000,000 more to go......

Woo Hoo! I finished the Celtic Cap (pattern from for my husband David. Mind you, this way supposed to be his anniversary gift (anniversary was October 20th), BUT we couldn't find the right pattern and yarn. He was super picky about the pattern and just loved this one.

I'm so glad I just went ahead and got the dark green yarn (elsebeth lavold Chunky AL, #016 Forest 82 yds., it took about a ball and a half), instead of the black or grey. He looks SO good in green with his red hair, wouldn't you agree??

Now he just needs a matching scarf. I figured I'd do the cable pattern on each side, and just a simple rib or something in the middle. YEAH! The pattern said it was for 'intermediate, with advanced cables'. Can you tell I'm really proud of myself?!? Now onto the 100 others gifts I need to make.

Christmas Knitting

I'm in the throws of it now! I am horrible about knowing how long things are going to take. So when I decided what I'm going to make the fam for Christmas, clearly I wasn't being rational. (I won't post the list here, just in case anyone's reading!!) Just trust me when I say it's a lot. Well, I guess I must really LOVE these lucky people =;)

My daughter, Sydney, is totally obsessed with Christmas this year. She wakes up asking to see Santa. Every house we pass that has lights she says, "Look Mommy, Christmas!! I want to go in there!" Like she thinks there's some awesome party going on in every decorated house. It's too cute. Of course when she has her big moment with Santa last week, she wouldn't even go up to him. (I had to carry her.) When she got put on his lap, all she could muster was "I want toys" really soft. Too funny. No smiles out of her, but hey, at least she didn't cry.

Alright, I'm off to go fight with the coffee maker. More FO pics coming soon, here's a little hat I whipped up over Thanksgiving weekend that looks 1000x better in person.
