I cannot believe it is December 1st already!! Where did the month of November go! I swear the months are just flying by so quickly. Before you know it my 1st grandbaby will be here (baby is due in July). I have been knitting gifts for Christmas this year and I thought I was almost done but then I remembered I wanted to make John a lovely scarf this year for Christmas. Last night was my knitting group at Cottage Yarn in Mint Hill, NC and I was looking around the shop for some yarn and for a pattern. I found this lovely yarn called Eco Duo and it was in a lovely shade of grays. Here is a picture of the color so you can visualize it:
I will be doing a very simple pattern of Knit 1, Purl 1 for this scarf but it makes a really nice pattern and I'm sure he'll love it!
I also have another gift to complete but I'm not saying what it is in case this person is reading my post!
I hope everyone finds the time to enjoy themselves during the holiday! I plan on baking cookies with my 2 daughters, making some holiday jewelry for myself, going to see the beautiful Christmas lights at the Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden and just plain enjoy the holiday season!
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
