Knitting furiously!



Trying to finish up Christmas gifts. I'm afraid there will be some IOUs under the Christmas tree (or more appropriately UFO's!). Some things I am working on are this Smock-a Rouche Scarf from One Skein Wonders for my DD, The Ilene Bag for a friend (bet you are wondering if you are that friend - if you are I'm afraid this one's going to be an IOU!), some teddy bear clothes for my granddaughter, and a felted clutch that just needs to be seamed and felted.


I finished this prayer shawl for a friend of my daughter's who has been diagnosed with a rare from of stomach cancer.

Sorry, have to get back to my knitting!
