Let’s see if my best friend would know this one is hers.  Haha.  She loves anything gray.  Found this free pattern on Ravelry.  I found it easy to knit being my first time knitting cables.  This turned out nice, so hip and definitely warm.

Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas every where you go.  It’s now December and with Thanksgiving upon us, we gear up for the coming Christmas holiday.  We are all looking forward to family visits, great dinners to be shared by all, and baking cookies and other scrumptious treats for gift giving.  Our home is decorated.  Christmas cards are in the works and knitted gift ideas are queued up for me to work on.  I got time, right?  Geez Louise…19 more days till Christmas!

On the knitting front, I finished my Terra Linda!  Yay!  I am such a fan of Knit alongs as I find myself finishing up more of my projects that way.  I am however 2 days late but at least i finished the cardigan before Christmas 🙂  I am so happy my TL  turned out fine even with the big difference in dye color with the next batch of yarn I had ordered.  This project is so much fun to knit and I have received so many wonderful compliments while wearing it.  One of my fave cardi by far.  And of course,  it’s more special because it’s made by Me 😉 (Can’t buy it at Antropologie nor at Nordstroms).  very special indeed!
