Here is my finished projects number 47 and 48. A drop stitch scarf and another crochet cowl. I am officially done with cowls. I have made way too many of them this season. I have enough for lots of presents so that is perfect, but I am done I tell you, done.
This is number 49. This is the beautiful yarn my friend Amy gave me for hosting the Holiday Knitting party this year. The yarn is Feza, Alp Oriental, Just for you. It comes in a big ball with the fringe already made up. It was a very fast knit and I love the way it looks. I have been spending hour after hour watching my son swim by live feed from Austin, TX. I was unable to go to this meet so I have been sitting on my behind knitting away. This yarn changes as you go so it keeps your interest even if the pattern is really simple. My son did not do well these past few days, actually he did horrible so having the comfort of yarn in my hands has been a help. Can you see what is peeking out the left side of the picture?
Ms. Cactus is in all her glory right now. I am stunned by the beauty of this cactus. And let me just say she is huge! I got her three years ago as a small plant for my kitchen table. I have re-potted her three times and I just might have to do it again after this flowering cycle. She loves this spot on my lanai, I move her in only when temps drop down to freezing.
Ms. Cactus you are so gorgeous, I hope all these compliments do not go to your head!
