Not My Knitting

Look what my mom gave me for Christmas!



It's a Clapotis! My mom is the sneakiest lady ev-ar. We went yarn shopping ages ago and we were drooling over some burgundy Malabrigo Silky Wool. Well she bought more than she needed so she could knit me this scarf! She is one sneaky lady. And I'm freaking IN LOVE. I'm going to wear this thing forever. And my mom made it, how cool is that?! I taught her to knit in April and she's taken off knitting all sortsa things.

Well she's not the only crafty lady in the family.
Look what I made her for Christmas





It's my first quilt! I made her the Stacked Coins Quilt from Last Minute Patchwork Gifts. It was a fun pattern and seemed to be good for a First Quilt. Certainly not perfect, but fun! I can't wait to make another one...

To wrap things up, here's Mo!



And if you've been wondering what I've been doing instead of blogging, go this page and scroll down to the picture.

Happy Boxing Day!

Well, I'm so glad you LOVE your Clapotis! You have no idea how hard it was to keep secret since I usually ask you so many questions or tell you how things are going. Luckily, we'd already done all of that, so I knew what I was doing! I LOVE LOVE LOVE my quilt and it seems it's all I talk about to anyone who will listen....My daughter, the librarian, made this beautiful quilt for me and just look how she had to do each and every square!

That Clapotis is amazing and I love love LOVE the color. Wow! I have yet to finish my clapotis which has been languishing on the needles for months now. And I can't really make anything for my daughter besides socks because she still lives with me. Now my son...he's a different matter altogether and I enjoy knitting him things for xmas.
