Treats for my sweets

Not a lot of time for a post today. I've been furiously clicking away through my Christmas knitting - so much that I looked up randomly last night to discover that it had just gone midnight! Oops, so much for trying to get to bed early to manage this cold I have!

Once the lucky peeps have received their gifts and I have proper photos, I'll be able to post them here. At least, I'll try. Chances are I'll be doing it from my iPad while on vacation and I'm not sure yet how to work around putting up the photos all at once with the Squarespace app. Anyway...

A couple of weekends ago now, the girls and I got together for our annual Christmas SnB, with a new friend joining us. The lovely Birgit may put all of us to shame for her rabid enthusiasm for knitting! She made the most delicious savoury shortbread and I have the gals their Christmas cowls, which were excitedly received (probably because we aren't ones to do gifts, but I saw this yarn and thought of each of them so, it had to be!).

L to R: Karen is wearing Piedras, Esther is wearing Indiecita, and Lara is wearing Arco Iris. Pattern is Rasta Neckwarmer by Breean Elyse Miller. Knit in Malabrigo Rasta (one skein makes a whole cowl) on size 10mm needles.

We're traveling tomorrow to warmer climes to spend the holidays with my family. Already I'm wondering how much knitting I can get done on the four hour flight...
