Happy Wednesday morning to all of you! I am feeling quite chipper right now because I have crossed one more project off my Christmas list. Another Elise Shawl, I know you are probably really sick of seeing these by now, but I am still enjoying making them. I have one more on the hook and then maybe I will be finished. Here take a look.
This one will be a present for my friend Terri. I like to make her something special for Christmas every year.
Purple is her favorite color. I made this Elise Shawl from Malabrigo Yarn, Rastita. I purchased this yarn a while back from Eat. Sleep. Knit., my favorite online yarn source.
It is gorgeous yarn to work with. Of course what Malabrigo yarn isn't?
I hope she likes it!
Thank you all so much for your lovely comments on my knitting ornaments. Many of you said you were going to make them, I sure hope you do and that you include them on your blog. I'd love to see your version.
My friend Kathy of Kathyinozarks is having a Christmas Basket Giveaway. She contacted me a while back and asked if I would like to send her a cup cozy for her to include in the giveaway. I gladly accepted, made one up and promptly shipped it. She also had help from two other friends. Included in the basket are fun items from Kathy including homemade soaps, scrubs and lavender sachets, a lovely hand knit scarf and some hand made jewelery. Please pop over to Kathy's blog and leave a comment so you have a chance to win this fun Holiday treat.
Hope you are having a great day.
