Last Christmas Gifts....

It's official, I'm sick. I've been denying it over the past few days, thinking it was allergies but I'm headachey, tired and coughing. My dad's right about this - this is my third cold this winter. I think I'm not eating enough veggies or fruits and not getting enough sleep, so I'm going to try over the next month (that I have off from school) to remedy this.

This cold conviently comes at a time that I should really not call out of work and I have to do a bunch of stuff: today I made cookies and tried to make fudge (didn't work) for mike's grandparents tomorrow. I also have to work closing tonight and opening tomorrow. Possible, but not fun.

But the christmas knitting. I did have enough yarn for a matching neckwarmer for my cousin, it's a little snug, but I'm not even sure if it's "his style", so we'll see!

I used the Wham Bam Thank You Lamb pattern as reference, but I used 20 sts instead of 25 and I didn't like the way they sewed it so, I just sewed it straight on.

And, last but not least, my sister's Thorpe. I didn't want to model it because it was so dark I was happy to at least get this picture and now I just look awful and sick...

(my sister modeled it)

Pattern: Thorpe
Yarn: Cascade 109 Bulky
Needles: size 9, should have used size 10s or larger
I used some paton's classic wool to edge it!

I'm going to go make some mini socks and watch hulu... then work! Happy christmas eve-eve!

Take care of yourself! Call sick into work, and curl up on the couch. Watch Elf again :D.

I really love the Thorpes.

Wow, it's been ages since I've commented :P.
