Merry Christmas!

Greetings, and Dear Cynthia,

I finished the sweater for dh just a moment ago!I had two remaining ends left to weave in, though the rest has been done for about a week... I don't know what I was thinking last week which enabled me to weave in all of the other ends and decide to leave two for "later", but "later" is here, the sweater is finished, and now I'm going to wrap it! I also bought some long sleeved crew neck shirts for dh to wear under it (white, black, and gray). Comparing it against a long-sleeved polo shirt, I think it will actually fit him, too.

DH is out with the boys buying groceries for an early Christmas Eve feast. Then we'll go to church this evening. Tomorrow we will go to the Ronald McDonald house and bring them some items from their "wish list", something which has become an annual tradition for us on Christmas Day. We are so thankful for our own healthy kids, so it is a small effort to help somebody else who might not be so fortunate right now.

In any case, I'd better get back to my gift wrapping, but I just wanted to pop in here to wish you all a Merry Christmas!

Warm regards,
Laura (YarnThrower)

The sweater looks so warm and comfy! I'll bet it becomes a staple of his wardrobe.

Merry Christmas to you and yours!

You wouldn't want to get the big gifts all done too far ahead of time: there'd be no sport in that! ;)

Merry Christmas to you and yours!

I hope you'll be able to come to Last Saturday Knitting this month. I miss having you there.

Merry Christmas. (We're still within the 12 days).
Oh, and the sweater is lovely, too. Alpaca, mmmm, warm, mmmm.
