Merry Ho Ho!
Of all the gifts I gave this year, these are the ones I was most excited about. I learned to knit in 2011, thanks to my amazing Mother-in-law, (and you tube, when she was not around to ask for help.) I had a lot of waiting time in doctors offices, etc, so I got a lot of knitting done! The Gryffindor scarf is so awesome - I knit it in a tube, so that both sides are nice, and it will be really warm. Mina's hat was a last minute project, but it turned out perfectly! Thanks for the pattern Betina!
We had a really fun Christmas. Mom, Anders and Celeste came over and it was very festive indeed. I even had a festive tablecloth for the dinner. Fancy! And I did not run out of cutlery! We went skating on Christmas Eve, did a secret Santa for someone, and saw some Christmas lights. There were new PJs for all (thanks Eve!) and even new dresses, since it was a Sunday after all. I quite enjoyed church on Christmas day. ( I always kind of envied the Catholics who get that every year, and for us it is only when the 25th falls on a Sunday. I am also envious of thier stained glass. But I suppose I should not be envious....) Anyway.
Merry Christmas to all! Hope your Christmas has been happy! And a Happy New Year too, in which we shall celebrate with the amazing cream cheese cinnamon buns, drool.
