Christmas Card Photo Take 1

It snowed here at the Jersey Shore today! I thought the snow would make a perfect backdrop for a Christmas card picture of the boys with Blue. Unfortunately by the time they got home from school it was so dark out!! Bahh Humbug.  The boys and Blue couldn't have been more cooperative, but it was just too dark to get any good pictures. Well good enough for a Christmas card, but I really did like how a few of them came out just for the family scrap book.

On the plus side the boys had a great time giving Blue some extra treats and hay. I know Blue didn't have any complaints.

MK's Hat~Yarn Along

I don't do much Holiday gift knitting. Instead I try to make hand knits for my friends and family on their Birthday's. This way I don't get overwhelmed so close to Christmas.  My niece's birthday is in the middle of the Summer so she had to wait a few months for her hand knit hat. I am so happy she loves it. Her mom claims she doesn't take it off :)

I used Schachenmayr Yarn "Boston Mix". I followed the pattern that came with the yarn. I can't find the name of the pattern anywhere. I had a little yarn left over and started knitting an ear warmer. I love how this yarn knits up in stockinette.  I of course ran out of yarn and I need to go back to Chelsea Yarns and buy some more so I can finish it up. 

I am still listening to "Drums of Autumn" from the Outlander series. I am still loving it!
