Only one more week until Christmas. . . and my efforts to reclaim Christmas for myself are working! Oh, I'm busy. And I've still got lots of things to do before The Big Day. But I'm not stressed like I usually am at this time of year. I am enjoying the busy-ness and the festivities. I'm having fun. So, going into "crunch-week" I'm going to keep this sentiment in mind. . .
Another card I found at Barnes & Noble.
Of course, we just put up our tree last night (it's not decorated yet -- we're waiting for Erin's arrival on Saturday). I haven't mailed out any cards. And I haven't baked a cookie! But that's okay. I'm surrounding myself with decorations and lights and movies and events and music that are adding energy to my days.
I also finished one more hand-knit gift! This one is for my friend, Sandie. Green thumb hand warmers for my great gardening pal! Couldn't be more perfect. . .
I used Sundara Yarn Aran Silky Merino for these mitts. Mmmmmmm. Gorgeous yarn! These are very luxurious little hand warmers, and I think Sandie's going to love them. This is such a clever little pattern -- with a great fit. Quick, too! I think they're especially perfect for gardeners! Here's my Ravelry link.
And, now. . . on with my list!
