Honestly, this very evening I've completed all the Christmas knitting. And that includes the (pause here for effect) Cat's Paw Wrap. I swear, it is having a little bath right now, and soon will be blocked. I sewed in the ends of the Tulip Cardi, blocked the alpaca socks, Maine Mitts and another Stolen Moments Wrap. It's all done!
I cannot believe that the CPW and I have parted company. After months of working on it, tomorrow sometime it will belong to my friend Beatrice.
It's going to look so great on her, and I think she will really love it. That makes me so happy. She's been a great friend, and I wanted to give her something that will let her know how much I value her.
Effective tomorrow (between the wrapping and Christmas dinner advance-prep), I can re-start the Mystic Waters. I'm really excited, and I think it's going to go well.
I hope that your Christmas knitting is completed too.. that you met your schedule and that you have some peace and rest prior to Christmas day. I hope we all keep the real meaning of Christmas in the forefront of our minds as we give the gifts we spent so many hours on.
Merry Christmas to you and yours, and all the best in 2008.
With love from Annie, Jim, Katie, Maddie, Anna, Aidan, Diana, Ike and Katerina. xoxox
