I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas!!!. I have had a pretty good day. My daughter and her boyfriend came by for a few hours, and my sister and her children stopped by for about an hour. The turkey breast and ham was great, and of course the yeast rolls my mother made are always great. I finished the scarf my daughter plans to give her boyfriend's mother before my daughter arrived today. I am still working in the scarf to give my friend at work. I could not get it finished by Wednesday and she was out of work sick on Wednesday so even if I had finished I would not be able to give the scarf to her before Christmas. I will have it ready for our return to work on January 4th. She took those days off too! . Sherlock Holmes is about to come on on TMC I like the old school Sherlock Holmes. I want to see the new Sherlock which I think started today. Happy Crafting!

My vacation has started I know it will pass by so fast but for now I am so happy!. I will return to work 01/04/2010. I have spent most of the evening working on the scarf my daughter wanted me to knit for her boyfriends mother. My mother,niece and I made a trip to walmart after I got off work today. It was a mad house at walmart but that is to be expected. We made a quick trip to pick up a few things, then made our way to the checkout lane. We made the wrong choice in lanes. A woman in front of us wanted to buy gift cards, well she tried to pay for all $440+ dollars in gift card and came up with insufficient fund, proceed to call her bank in line and try to resolve the situation. So we waited, and waited in line until she finally decided to give up. I think she was trying to run a scam and but she left the store without the gift cards after we stood in line a very long time. So once I got back home I have spent time knitting and browsing the Internet.

Wow the weekend passes by so fast. It is Sunday night and I have to go to work tomorrow. The up side is I only have to make it through 3 days!!!!. I have spent the day watching Christmas movies , eating, and knitting. I have made a lot of progress on the bias scarf. I am knitting the scarf for my daughter to give to her boyfriends mother. It is red and I will post a picture of the first few rows, along with the 2 magic scarves I have on the needles. The magic scarves are knit using 2 different yarns. 1 using Lion Brand Yarn the Fishermen's Wool, and 1 using Patons Classic Wool. It is funny how different the same pattern looks when you use different yarns. I have to post another picture of my cats. I have never seen them like this in the years they have lived together, they look so sweet. Happy crafting and have a great Monday.
