We're on our annual trip down to Southern California to visit our families. One thing for sure, there will be lots of food! But more than that, it's all about hanging out with various family members, goofing around with the nieces and nephews (tickle fights anyone?) and being there for the stories of the year.
Wishing all my friends the best the holidays have to offer you, whether you celebrate Hanukkah, Yule, Christmas, Kwanzaa, Boxing Day or any other variant of your choice!
Merry/Happy/Joyous Holidays to you!

Ends were woven in during Late Night Knits last Friday. As the caroling finished, so did the weaving.
Anyway, this is just a quick post before I dash off to give it to its new family! Then the rest of the day will be Christmas/Yule shopping, home to cook, a Solstice dinner and knitting time.
Got to finish the one Christmas gift I'm knitting - that I cast on on Sunday and need to gift tomorrow! And I said I wasn't going to do any Christmas knitting...

Yarn - Cascade Cherub Collection DK, 12 colors, 6 brights and 6 corresponding pastels
Needle - US size 6
Begun Nov. 27, Finished Dec. 18
40" x 35"
Figured out my color sequence, then used a Random Number generator for the basic number of rows of each color.
Why am I blogging? I need to weave in ends before I go to bed! 'Night!

From SevenYaks.etsy.com, a Christmas gift from my friend Danny. Hard to see, but there are numbers by each hole from 00 to 17 (US sizes - not metric, although the seller also has metric gauges) moving clockwise around then in towards the center.
Needle Gauge = awesome! (would have been more awesome in purple, but the seller doesn't make them in that color, yet...)
