Yes you read it right, and no I'm not bragging but at last I have finished the Christmas knitting.
There was a last minute substitution when I realised that the yarn that I had bought for Dancing Daughter's Pointe shoe socks was just not knitting up right so thanks to Amy Sue who took delivery of some Knitpick patterns for me, and sent them on, I was able to run up one of those Bella scarves instead.
In fact I like it so much I am going to make a couple for myself as accent scarves for work I quite fancy one in a fancy silk yarn - it only takes one ball so I can probably afford it:-)
Next up is Skateboarding Son's fingerless gloves.

Finally on the Christmas front here are my Mum's Jaywalkers
I'm really please with these. I am also really flattered that the author of the pattern left me a comment on the blogg asking for a copy of this picture for her gallery. I didn't realise I was being read by such exalted company:-)

If you have knitted a pair of these, drop her a picture she is really interested in what people are doing with her pattern.
Finally and this is not for Christmas, I have been promising a picture of my finished Faroese shawl.
Faroese Shawl from Gathering of Lace
Knitted in Rowan Cashcotton 4ply : colour Monet
It took just over 5 balls
It has already become a firm favourite and I am wearing everywhere it is so cozy!
I'm not sure if I will be posting again before Christmas as the next few days will be spent trying to get the house straight and doing the last minute shopping.
So in case I don't, I wish you all a lovely Christmas. I hope that you have the Christmas that you want (different people want different things out of Christmas) and have a yarn full New year ;-)
