Dona's Scarf

My friend is going to Minnesota in January to visit her family. We don't generally have much need for scarves here but she asked me to make her one for her trip. I did basketweave on the ends and seed stitch for the body of it. Why does Simply Soft Plum Wine photograph purple?

I had the urge to knit a Santa Hat. I have no idea why but I wanted to make one. Here it is in all it's glory on both of my kids. MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!

His and her chemo caps

A relative of a friend has lung cancer which has moved to her brain and lymph nodes. She's going through chemo and has lost her hair. Her wonderful hubby has shaved his head too and they're trying to wear matching chemo caps. I hope they like them.

What a difference between natural light vs indoor lighting. :-)

Shawl for Deb

This is a Christmas gift for a friend. I could finally put the picture on the blog, she opened it today. :-) I found the pattern here.

The cat bed has a home

I gave some friends the cat bed hoping that maybe their cats would like it better than mine. Apparently they both do. YAY!!!!

It sure looked bigger without a kitty in it. LOL

Every pear tree should have a scarf

This is for my friend Marlene. She supplies the yarn and how she wants her scarf and I knit it up. It's the first scarf I've done lengthwise and it was a nice change.

I thought the pear tree looked a little chilled so I let it wear the scarf for awhile. :-)

And the winner is..............

Susan's the winner on my Pay It Forward. I wish I could've chosen between the four that commented - Sarah & Alyssa, I do appreciate the comments.

Sallee & Susan - I'm senile and didn't remember to pick a winner until just now. I put your names on a piece of paper and shook them up in my hands. My son picked the winning name.

Susan - something will arrive on your doorstep between now and November 30 of 2008.

Thanks to everyone for the comments and I hope that you get lots of comments on your blogs!!!!!
