Saturday we went to see Santa. Calib is one of the children on my Husband's side of the family that lives here in Ohio. He was very good with Santa. The little girl before us in line would not pose at all. Afterwards, we went out to lunch.

I have been working on holiday gifts. This scarf is called a mistake rib. I love how the colors change from row to row.
Here is a link on how to do the mistake rib.

We have had a few snowy days and I am sad to report that one of the 3 white swans is no longer with us. We did get these visitors within the past week. I feel badly for them as parts of the pond around the edges are all ice. I hope they all make it through this winter.

I also finished this skein of purple handspun this morning.
I love the way it turned out. It hangs perfectly balanced. I am so happy I took that all day class on spinning. It helped me figure out how to spin better yarn.

The company I am working for is giving gifts to an underprivilaged family in Dayton. The family is a single Mom with 7 kids. Everyone in the office is split into groups of 2 to shop for family members. I made these for my girl in the family along with all the gifts we are going shopping for. I believe we are going shopping sometime later this month. The company is paying for all the gifts.
The stripes in these glow in the dark. I thought she might like that.

I have not posted in a little bit. Yesterday J took me to KY to the aquarium. It was the best aquarium I have ever visited. In the evening we went to the Cincinnatti Symphony.
It was a nice to both have a Saturday off to spend together.
I made these mitts on the way there and finished them up this morning. They are fall mitts for my Mom. I hope she likes them.
