Christmas Gifties

Well, this knit blog is becoming a brag blog. I was totally spoiled this Christmas!

The dark purply, black, gold; named Gothic Moon came from Terra Bella Spun. Isn't Gothic Moon an awesome name? It's merino, border leicester locks, mohair, and glitz. SOFT! I started spinning it, and have a tiny bit done.

The pinky, red came from Lone Star Arts. It's called Raspberry Sherbert, and it's merino. Soft, stuff, it's going to be so pretty.

The spindles came from Butterfly Girl Designs. I just had to have these ones, cuz they are dalmatian jasper. I had a dalmatian when I was growing up.

My MIL got me all of these. Wasn't that a wicked awesome gift? She's nice!

On the spindle is a bit of fiber that came from one of these sellers. I just stuck it on the spindle after opening gifts, and didn't even see where it came from, or what kind of fiber it was. hehe, I just needed to spin! The little keychain skein came from one of them, too, but since I just stuck it right on my keys, I don't know which seller. Patience, what's that?

Hubby got me a DS and two games, even though the new camera was supposed to be my Christmas gift. LD got me my own Webkin, so I can have my own account. His name is Wyatt. Cute little lion. hehe

I finished my socks! The day after Christmas, though. Oh well, I can wear them on New Year's Eve, at our last Christmas party. Hubby's sister and her hubby and kids, and hubby's step sister and brother and families will all be there. The kids did a name drawing, so they'll each get one more gift, and give one more gift. I have a pair of slippers to felt before then to go to the 15 yr old cousin with some sleep pants.

Unfortunately, my mom's slippers were too small. All the rest fit, and were a big hit. I just have to knit my mom a new pair. And remember to give my brother his hat.

I also have to knit Hubby's aunt a pair of socks. She hinted a while ago that she really wants some, and when she opened her gift, she was like "Where are my handknit socks?" Her birthday is the 30th, so they'll be a late bday gift.

The kids were way spoiled, too. So was Hubby. I found him a bunch of Red Sox stuff. Cups (stuffed with his fave candies), and a license plate, and a watch. He loves the Red Sox.

I hope everyone in blogland was spoiled, and happily surrounded by loving family, and knitting goodies, like I was! Hopefully, I can get to the blogs and read what everyone has to say about their holiday celebrations.

Time to go knit, and let LD check on her WebKin family. :)

Knit On!!
