Proud to Announce

I am proud to announce that all of my Christmas knitting is complete. This includes blocking, but not the wrapping. I'd better get on that! Pictures will come after giftage commences. Hannah says it's pretty. :)

Home for the Holidays

I'm so glad my gift (2 skeins of Noro Kureyon) was well-received by Gena. I was lucky to get some luxuriously soft Baby Alpaca Grande (distributed by Plymouth) from Karen. I'm planning to make a loose-knit scarf so the yarn will keep it's incredible softness.

I've traveled home for the holiday and got to play with some kittens that my sister is raising. She's trying to decide which of these two she will adopt. You will have to excuse me for posting cute kitten pictures - because I don't normally get to spend time with animals.

Kitten 1 is poofy and clumsy (she is still quite young). She's normally very shy and quiet but she showed some aggression over a favorite toy.
Kitten 2 is the most developed in the litter. She's very intelligent and coordinated (for her age). Here she is snuggling up to the air register to hog all the hot air coming out.

This kitten also curls up in wool sweaters and falls asleep - therefore we had something to bond over.

Isn't it Fun?

Isn't it fun wrapping presents? Especially when said presents contain goodies for knitters? I'm really looking forward to Knit Picky's holiday party tonight. I hope the recipient of this gift enjoys what I picked! It's so difficult to shop for these things where anyone could end up with your gift.
