A sneak peek...

I've been knitting, cooking and decorating for Christmas! Busy, busy, busy!

I can't show you everything, I don't want to ruin the surprise...

But since it's december, since I'm in a Holiday mood, here is a sneak peek at a some things I've been working on.

First of all, a navy blue and white Snawheid.

 I simply fell in love with Kate Davies new hat design. I just had to modify it a little bit to match my gauge. I did 3 snowflake rows instead of 4 and I did stranded ribbing (because I think it looks beautiful!)

Kate is coming out with a book on monday! Go check out her blog for a preview of the contents. It looks fabulous and I want to knit everything in it!!!

Back to the Christmas knitting pile, I also finished an alpaca sweater for a friend's son who is studying abroad for the year. He was very clear about what he wanted, the yarn, the color, the shape and the initial. I listened. I did exactly what he asked for...
I really hope he likes it!!!

It was still a little bit damp when I took the picture, that's why it's on the table. The angle gives it a strange shape, but don't worry, the sleeves aren't tiny, they just look like it! ;-)

O.K. Time to go decorate the Christmas tree!
