WIP Weds: The Gift of Christmas all the way from Switzerland


Hey! My Pay it Forward from Marigold’s Loft arrived, all the way from Switzerland! What a delightful surprise, with all the stuff going on, thank you so much Natalie. They really made me smile!

Fingerless gubbies

I am keeping them in the pocket of my favourite coat, so I am wearing them everyday :0)

The bad news. Today I am at a major hospital in Toronto, MiL is going in for a tricky procedure to remove a giant gallstone, that was leftover after she had her gallbladder removed. Surgeon commented he had never seen one so large. We are all very worried about her. Last 3 times were no walk in the park! Think I will work on Wellengang / Swell scarf for her while I wait. She prefers me with her rather than her sons, no surprise there, lol. Here’s hopeing she will sail through it!

Well I continue beavering away on presents as deadline looms!

I highly recommend this one for self stripeing fingering yarn, it really makes the stripes dance :0)

    Your MIL and your family are in my thoughts today. I hope all goes well with her procedure.

    I just LOVE the simplicity and beauty of the picot edged blanket you’re making. It’s really gorgeous already.

    Wow! A scarf in fingering weight. That’s great! I find scarves take so long I always use worsted or bulky yarn to get them done that much faster. Yours is so beautiful I might have to give it a go…for a very special person.

    You are amazing for knitting a scarf in finger weight. I can’t do scarves in worsted weight without getting annoyed.
