Happy Holidays Everyone!

The next week will probably be a blur of activity for me so I wanted to take time to wish you all a very Merry Christmas filled with loads of love & laughter.

After months & months of delays, my daughter's boyfriend deployed to Afghanistan yesterday. He had a 9 hour airport layover here in DC so she drove up (speeding all the way, I'm sure) from southern VA & we found a great seafood place for dinner. Although I have spoken to him by phone over the last 2 years - this was our first face-to-face meeting. Such an awesome young man! As a young boy his mom made alot of his clothing so I've promised him loads of handknit care packages (hmmmmm - cashmere socks might be a nice treat). Here's praying that the next 6 months goes VERY quickly & he's back with us safe & sound.

On the last leg of my holiday knitting & very pleased with everything. There will be a little something handmade in everybody's Christmas stocking this year. Looking ahead to the New Year, I've joined the Sweater-A-Month group on Ravelry. Won't succumb to the pressure but hope to end up with less stash & a few new wearables. First up will be this Inca Marl Ruffled Coat pattern by Jan McCarthy.

Looks like a 2 month project to me! Enjoy your holiday!
