Christmas knitting is done

I have been busy this fall knitting simple scarves for Christmas gifts.

The pattern is so easy I can knit while I watch TV in the evenings. I have made five scarves, and these two are my last ones.

I hope for once my daughter is too busy to look at my blog, or she will see one of her Christmas presents!

OMG those are just gorgeous!!! Wish I had the patience to knit - though I do counted cross stitch, you'd think I could be patient enough to knit. But I'm not.

That's why there are people like you and my friend Liz - who knit so beautifully and are so generous with the results!

Kris - I love counted cross stitch and I was doing a lot of it back about ten years ago -- and THEN I started having problems with my hands -- after two carpal tunnel surgeries and 7 trigger finger releases, and a lot of arthritis set in, I can't do the close work required for the cross stitch anymore and I really miss it.

But I can still knit, nothing fancy but I like to do it. Now that my Christmas stuff is done, I am looking through patterns for a new project. I think maybe a sweater set for the new baby my nephew's wife just had -- or maybe I'll just head back to the sweaters I do for Knit for Kids, a charity endeavor.

Beautiful scarves, Sharon. And you most certainly have had more than your share of trials and tribulations with your hands. My condolences.
