Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat...

And so comes the parade of Christmas projects! These pics will NOT be on my Flickr account because guess who sees all of my Flickr photos? You guessed it...friends and family. They don't know about this blog, because it's generally my knitting related stuff. So, I can post my pics here, but my Ravelry account will have to display the generic "No photo until Christmas" clip art.

My next Christmas project is the Irish Hiking Scarf for my sister. This is my first try at cables and I LOVE them! Cables are so much easier than I had thought, and they make the fabric oh so sproingy (springy + boing = sproingy). I am also loving to knit with KnitPicks Swish Superwash in the Ballerina colorway. Not sure how it will hold up with use, but Texas winters are pretty short anyway. Dear sis and hubby moved about 3 hours away one month ago and being away from friends and family is difficult. I'm also going to make a Coronet Hat from Knitty out of the same yarn to go with it.
