New Christmas mug. I had to replace one of my favorite Starbucks mugs because I "killed" it. I dropped it on the floor and thought it survived so I went to wash it in the sink and then the handle fell off. *Gasp* So sad. I got this one at Borders because I belong to their reward program and they sent me an additional $5.00 in rewards money so I had to spend it. And the mug was half-off so it was $4.00. Score! It's nice and big and the snow man just looks kind of crazy and eerie. Just like a snowman should....teehee.Here's what I got myself for Christmas. Pretty sock yarn. I bought it from and talk about great service. I ordered it not too long before Christmas and actually didn't expect to receive it until after the holiday but it came several days later. And the receipt had handwritten notes from the owner and the person that either packed the order or processed it. I think that's a nice touch. And the yarn was on sale for 60 to 75% off, depending on which one it was. So who could pass that up in any case?Here's one of the things that I made for Christmas morning brunch. It's a tofu and veggie scramble wrapped in crescent rolls and baked. Absolutely yummy! I couldn't stay out of it. I served it with hash browns that were baked in muffin tins. I made so much great food and we ate so much that I could hardly look at food the next day. I did get alot of knitting done though.
We watched alot of movies and generally just laid around. Which was nice and relaxing.
Here's one of my finished projects. It's a scarf from the lastest Noro book. I made it out of Lion Brand Suede yarn because I didn't have the yarn it called for but this was the same weight. It looks nice but just like any suede or chenille it does get rather loopy and loose. But I do like it.
Here's another fast knit. It's a super bulky yarn and I thought it was a cute hat.

Here's my current sock that I carry along in my purse. I didn't realize that the yarn-OnlineSupersocke- is a sport weight so I just knit it using the Yarn Harlot's basic sock pattern and size 2 needles. No wonder it knit up so fast!

But it will be warm, that's for sure. It's nice and thick. I do like the yarn though.

Well, off to do some consignment knitting. It's a pair of socks that are worsted weight, which always go fast but they are size 11's so it takes a while to get through the foot. But almost finished with the first one so I will soldier on!
Happy New Year to everyone! And stay warm on these 11* nights!!

Little Knits is one of my favorite online stores. She is so sweet to deal with. Always writes and little note and wraps your purchase up so nicely.
