Even with all the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, I still have managed to get this blog post together!

Over the last week I participated in a Knit-a-long! And made this cozy cowl/wrap/poncho thing… I was so proud of it, I wore it to church for the family service on Christmas Eve.

On Christmas Day, I made another Toothless Dragon hat. It is for a friend of mine. She is very excited.

I took huge advantage of the Michaels Boxing Day sale on Friday… In Canada, there is/was a bunch of yarn on sale and Friday had a coupon for 25% off the entire purchase, including sale items! So awesome.

At Michaels I bought enough Caron simply soft yarn to make myself a sweater. The pattern I am following will make me a sweater that should look something like this…

And because working on a sweater isn’t enough on its own (hahaha), I cast on a pair of socks. Because I am making them ankle socks, I am already at the heel flap.

I love making Two at a Time Socks, top down… Don’t you?

Now to go visit other blogs 😉
