The Eve of Christmas Eve

I actually did take a walk on the beach yesterday; the day was very grey. As usual at this time of year, the beach was deserted, just the way I like it.

I coerced Melissa into modeling her new glasses and the scarf I made her last year, before she headed out to meet up with friends.

Made a coffee sleeve out of Noro Kuryon last night; so easy, I'm going to make another.

And finished the Awbry cowl out of Noro Bonbori. Love the look, but it's pretty snug. I think either larger needles on that yarn (I'm a tight knitter) or trying different yarn would yield a looser cowl, but I definitely like the pattern. Very quick knit too!

Today is crafting day, while we wait on Meredith and Ryan to arrive from Connecticut. I'll definitely post photos of the process and the products!


  1. You are so productive. The beach looks just beautiful in winter. It looks like you're ready for a great Christmaas!
