Merry, merry AND a Friday Quote

Click, save, print, enjoy!
Wow, a double-dose of wonderfulness, right?

It occurred to me yesterday, after I published my post, that I could have been hilariously funny. Not just ha-ha funny, but side-stitch inducing! How, you may ask? Well, remember I said I was two pounds lighter this year than last? That means by the time I'm 85, I'll be at my goal weight!

Awesome, don't you think?

So, today's bookmark is a vertical, just to shake things up. Hope you like it, I had fun with the collection of digital scrapbook files taking up space on my hard drive.

Before I leave you to your holiday madness, I have a tiny confession. I wasn't sure if my friend Elora would be reading the blog or not, so I couldn't talk about my real knitting project for the month of December. You saw the Red Riding Hood poncho but I was teasing you about mittens. Now that it's been delivered, you get to see what I've been working on.

Knit in KnitPicks Palette.
The pattern is in the Fall 2010 issue of Vogue Knitting. Waaaaay back when it was still warm outside, I sent a picture of it to a few people who I thought might like it, and Elora was the only one who said she would love to wear it. I was itching to knit it, but thought it best to stick to the original colors (or close to them) for the first one. Now that I've made one, I might (that's a mighty big 'might') make one for myself in grey/black/cream with pops of red and purple.

Then again, I might not.

Anyhoo, Elora loved it, and called me later to say how much she loved the inside as well. I couldn't agree more. The magic of Fair Isle is that the private side is just as fascinating as the public one.

I should have taken a picture of that!

Have a lovely Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. I'm being a kitchen slave today and tomorrow, but it's a role I … get ready … relish!
