one pair of mittens down, one pair of socks to go! although i haven't knit anything for dd yet...
these mittens are knit to go with the bristle yorkshire tweed bronte scarf. unfortunately, rowan doesn't make the same colors in different weights of yorkshire tweed, but bramble in the aran weight is a pretty good match. the colors are a rich warm brown in person. ann budd's handy book of patterns is an invaluable resource. fiddle fiddle fiddled with the cable, am very pleased with the way the mittens turned out. hope ddil is happy on christmas morning :-)
saturday night was lake placid's christmas parade. it's my favorite thing about lake placid. who would have thought we'd have sooo many fire trucks in this bitty town?
had to take a picture of the harley guy with the dr.demento helmet complete with horns. must find one for tom. the gingerbread house float was the bomb, and the childrens' nativity float was too cute!
this year we will be spending christmas in jacksonville at my son and ddil's. he has to fly on the 23rd and the 26th, so they can't come to lake placid. it will be the first time i haven't cooked christmas dinner since i got my first apartment. i guess it's time to hand over the torch, but it feels weird!
