'Twas the night before the night before Christmas...

... and there is not much going on here. It's not like being a kid - I can remember the anticipating of the weeks leading up to Christmas - every day it seem to mount and mount. Now it's just... meh.. Christmas is coming.

Actually the peace is kind of nice. I've FINALLY gotten to the arm holes on my Tosh cardi. I didn't think it was ever going to happen - 280 stitches to a row is a lot - oh wait... did I say I joined 10 shawls in 2010... I guess I better get used to long rows. Anyway, here's how it looks at this moment:
As you can see the second ball of yarn is quite a bit lighter - the beauty of hand painted yarn. Personally I think it looks pretty cool, and I'm sure the next ball will be different again. It all adds to the charm in my opinion.

I am about half done the second Budgie sock - but I don't have a picture to show you. I took one but it's blurry and I only have until Dave is out of the shower to get this post done - so there is no time to take another one.

Yep.. he's out now and will want the computer back, so I'll leave you with this wicked awesome pic I took of Peno yesterday:

I like the peace and quiet ... to me that makes it feel more like a holiday than anything else!

Happy Christmas!

10 shawls? You're more insane than I thought! You do realise there are only 12 months in a year, right? EEEEP! Good luck! Merry Ho Ho Ho!

The cardi looks great! I hope you can get it finished before January since you have to do all those shawls :-)

Have a very Merry Christmas!

It sucks not being a kid anymore eh?
That's okay I think Santa dropped off something here for you. Momma will have to take a better picture of your sweater so everybody can see how pretty the yarn really is.
