Merry Christmas, Everyone!
Well, I did it! I finished the shawl for my mom on Saturday evening! It's all wrapped up and ready to give to her later today, when the family gets together.
On Sunday, I tried my hand at dyeing yarn with Kool Aid. It was lots of fun, and came out pretty well. I can see why people get hooked on dyeing their own. (Edit: I used grape, green apple and blue raspberry on the first skein, and cherry and grape on the second.)
I also went into the city with my sister and we visited Knit Cafe. I bought some greagt yarn and had a yummy creme brulee latte. We spent some time there knitting, then went to Union Square Park, where they had a great holiday bazaar with all sorts of handmade gifts. It was a fun day in spite of the almost steady rain.
I hope all my knitting friends have a wonderful Christmas!
