Well, I've been on vacation and it's been nice. I got most of my Xmas knitting done. My mothers gift is still in the works but almost done. I modified the "just enough ruffles" pattern by doing 12 short rows instead of 14. I'm thinking it might still be too wide for what I want so next time I might use a size 7 needle instead of 9. I'm also working on my first set of socks using a pattern and video tutorial by Stacy of verypinkknits. Is coming well. Whole I've been here in Iowa I visited a LYS and picked up some really neat yarn. It's called Kiddo by Crystal Palace Yarns. It's a microfiber nylon blend and is sooooo soft. Only problem is that it's a nightmare to knit with lol. I also picked up this awesome scarf kit. Funny...I still don't have a scarf for myself! For Xmas I managed to snag some awesome sock yarn by knitpicks from their Handpainted line and a gift certificate for knitpicks. They're my favorite online yarn store! The sock yarn is Imagination in wicked witch color way. Its gorgeous! All in all I'm having a great time!
