|our lovely and gaudy wreath|
Over the weekend Fiona, Rowan, and I decorated a wreath I had picked up at Trader Joe's. It is boxwood, which I am not really sure what that is, but the wreath is lovely and bright green and not prickly like an evergreen wreath. I went to Target and got a box of inexpensive ornaments and some fun tinsel. Since Fiona had gone with me, I let her pick... and of course it was the nice wild colored box... but you know, the plain old green and red/silver and gold just gets old. Gotta love a wreath that has hot pink and purple balls and bright red snowflakes. We had a great time putting it together.
And finally... my Quince and Company yarn came. I had plans to knit up a Shalom Sweater for Audrey, but after casting on no less than 5 times and knitting to the first set of M1 stitches and not finding the correct kind, I am about to give up. I made this sweater before, but I have no idea what I did last time. I am toying with knitting up an Annabel pullover and just sort of fudging it so I can use "Puffin" yarn. Maybe by making the smallest size?? I have no idea. Both sweaters should knit up super quick once I figure it all out, so I believe I have enough time between now and December 21st.
