There is always this sense of unreality as it gets so close to the big day, knowing full well, I am not ready.  I still have one stop at the stores, but that will have to happen at lunch, then wrapping, then cleaning, and baking, and early prep of the Christmas meal.

That last is actually the one thing I love these extra days for.  I can prep and then have all the dishes done, table set, and everything spotless and sit around and just visit on Christmas Eve.  Well that is my plan and with a little luck...

I'm working on the last little sweater.  Its really cute and I ought to have it done by tomorrow morning.  It is just zipping along.  I love little things.

I have to admit I wasn't very sure about my colour choices. Not that I had any choice.  The only other colour they had that worked at all was a gold and I just don't see this little gent as a gold kind of guy.  Few 4 year old boys are in my estimation.  These are Berroco Vintage colours 5175 and 5179.   

At first, the colours look wrong.  There was so much green it was swamping the soft brown olive tones of the brown.  I stood back and decided to persevere and kept knitting.  Now that there is more brown there is a better balance.  It looks just fine.

Just a little more knitting, just a little more time.

I absolutely LOVE the green and brown.
I just want to know what the heck time you go to work that you can see the sunrise!
Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas. All the best in 2013.
