I am so delighted that December has arrived!
We welcomed the new month with the delivery of the aromatic Christmas wreath! We enjoyed having a Christmas tree last year, but the cleanup was a hassle so we passed up on it this year and settled on the wreath. It’s small compared to the six-foot tree, but it’s still very lovely hanging on our living room wall … and it smells wonderful. Aaah, how I love this time of the year.
I just finished knitting a pair of leg warmers, inspired by Joelle Hoverson’s Super-Easy Leg Warmers pattern, from the book, Last-Minute Knitted Gifts. I used two skeins of Cascade 200 Superwash yarns in black. Just like the name indicates, this is easy and knits really fast — perfect for a beginner knitter. I was able to knit this in two evenings while watching a few movies and enjoying Pon Pon’s karate kicks.
P.S. I read this morning that the Duchess of Cambridge (aka Kate Middleton) is pregnant! I’m so happy for the lovely couple! YAY!
