A Woolgirl Christmas

Rowan and Dad had fun shopping at Woolgirl for some of my Christmas gifts! The best part was they didn't need to wrap them since Jen at Woolgirl does the best job (all the yarn was wrapped with little extras thrown in like hot chocolate or Soak soap)! I loved everything! Oh, and I have to say, Rowan did a great job with extras too. She also bought me two patterns and the cutest stitch markers from Woolgirl!

l to r: Hazel Knits fingering, color Hometown Football; Miss Babs Yummy Sport, color Bronze Plum; Dashing Dachs 55% Mohair 45% Merino color Carmel Apple and Pumpkins

This might be one of my favorites. So sproingy and soft. And I love the colors. Plus, 90% merino and 10% nylon! Still can't beleive the soft!

Gee, which color do you think Rowan picked for herself? hehehe. Surprising how her colors are growing on me too.

And the Woolgirl fun started on Christmas Eve when my prize arrived!!! I won a contest on her blog and my prize was this perfect yarn by The Unique the Rudolph colorway! There were lots of other goodies too!! Thanks Jen!

We hosted Christmas at our house this year, so Rowan was able to use her gorgeous Rudolph dishes.

Now that the 15 ornaments are knit (crazy!) (well, not Rowan's HP sweater'll be done soon...I promise), I cast on a pair of socks for me! I couldn't resist this month's Woolgirl sock club yarn and pattern! I just started today! I also plan to try to get back to some of my UFOs......first up, my Chevron Scarf.

I still have another FO to show, but as Turtlegirl says, each FO is worthy of their own pictures tomorrow!

Happy Knitting!

Wow! No way would my family ever shop for yarn for me (even though I'd probably weep if it was a skein of red heart they got!)

I was so happy for you winning the Rudolph!! Gorgeous yarns there! I'm so glad you trained Rowan right family, we'll let's just say a gift cert. is better for them to choose! Happy New Year!

The Bronze Plum looks wonderful-it was one of my considerations for the Ribby Pulli scoopneck. And I love the Dasching Dachs Carmel Apple-another one I had eyed (and had been good and resisted!). Lucky you!

Love your x-mas gift haul. Your family did nicely! And as tapmouse said, we discussed bronze plum at length, so it's nice to see it again. ;)

And since I finally finished my Miss Babs Waterfalls socks, I must say that her sportweight yarn is yummylicious!

What great gifts. What is the green coloured yarn though? That Rudolph yarn is my fave - oh yes, that would make something veeeeeery pretty :-) I like the pic with Rowan's plates and the silver ornament in the back - you are quite the photographer too :-)
