Last Present – Done!

January 14, 2010

And only 12 days after the holidays, not tooo bad.  Now I just need to get the package out the door.  I made an eyelet hat from Fall 2009 Vogue Knitting using the natural brown alpaca purchased last year from Herbert Saskatchewan.  You can’t miss it off of the Transcanada, a big sign that says “Alpaca, Motel”.  She sells her alpaca finished items, yarn and roving from the reception area.  I have enough leftover for another hat! 

Modeled by a lovely co-worker!  The natural brown is such a rich colour.  This hat design extremely practical for the Canadian winter with its four inch double brim.  My co-worker has a petite head which makes this hat seem huge, but its also WARM.  On a cold day, pull it way down over your ears and forehead. 

Now that I’m done knitting for others, its back  my stuff!  I’m finishing up two projects, and started a Scroll Lace Scarf for fun. 

Skating competition is tomorrow!  Its going to be a tiring day as we start practice at 8 am, and the competition starts at noon after the women’s Olympic hockey team practices.  We then go until 10:30 pm, at which point I’m sure I’ll be tired zombie.  A sparkly tired zombie.

    Hope the competition went well.

    But isn’t it time to start on the presents for next Christmas? Then there won’t be any last-minute scramble.
