Winter Project

Good afternoon to everyone! I'm joining up with Jennifer at Thistlebear for her wonderful Winter Project link party. Please visit Jennifer's lovely blog to see what other's are creating.  

I've been working steadily on a lace scarf for a good friend of mine. Lace takes a long time to knit! If I was better at time management, I'm sure the scarf would already have been delivere.! But that's just not me. There's been a lot happening here at my house, and Christmas preparations have not been one of them. I still have not got the tree up, but hopefully this weekend. I threw a garland up around the front door, added lights, and that's all. Oh, I did decorate a tiny tree that I used to take to my dear old Dad (sniff), but this year it is gracing the playroom, and my favourite little daycare boy helped me decorate it. He liked it so much that he asks if we can decorate it again every day he's here ;) 

Right, the lace scarf ... I'm knitting this in fingering weight, hand-dyed yarn, in a very dark navy blue with touches of teal throughout. It's really, really nice stuff. Very soft and has a nice slippery feel for knitting. The pattern is a fir tree design, which I think is perfect for my friend who lives near the tall timber forests in the far West. I'm more than halfway done, and have calculated how many repeats I have to knit each day in order for it to be completed in four days. So far I'm on track! A bit tricky to photograph, but here it is.

I actually did complete the last lace scarf I was knitting and have delivered it to my friend.

Thanks for stopping by today, and I hope you are having wonderful times with family and friends in the weeks and days leading up to Christmas Day!
