Christmas Knitting Complete

With the deepest apologies to those of you still in the thick of the holiday knitting frenzy, I present to you my completed Christmas knitting:

Project Specs:
Recipient: dear Gram, my husband's grandmother
Pattern: Knotted Open Work Scarf, by Wannietta Prescod
Yarn: Elann Peruvian Baby Cashmere, color Parchment, exactly 2 balls
Needles: Denise #8
Notes: A lovely, soft, drapey end product, but very boring to knit. I would do it again though because its so nice.

Project Specs:
Recipient: PumpkinBoy - this will be his Christmas Stocking from here on out.
Pattern: Holiday Stocking, Mary McCall
Yarn: Malabrigio merino worsted color "Forest" main color, 1 skein; Noro Cash Iroha color #33 contrast color, scraps
Needles: Denise #8 (magic looped)
Notes: Very quick and simple pattern. My first time with Malabrigio - OH.MY.GOD. this stuff is soft - softer than the Cash Iroha thats for sure. I'm fantasizing of a very close fitting pullover and and no shirt underneath. I am smitten with this yarn and must have more.

My WIP list is down to socks and the Butterfly vest (which needs a good stretch of uninterrupted time from me.) I have another large sweater project on the horizion - one that I'm very excited about, but its not for me. I'll tell you about it soon.

Great job! You are did well on the deadlines for X-mas. I love your son's nickname. My girl is "pumpkin princess", but the boy is "Mr. Destructo" (he breaks everything he can get his hands on).
merry knitmas!

I was about to explode in a fit of jealous rage - then I realized that you weren't finished with your holiday knitting yet. Whew. I feel better. ;-)

Cashmere scarf! It's beautiful. I love the stitch pattern. I wish I was Gram :-)

PumpkinBoy certainly has luxury stocking. Hopefully it will be filled with goodies this year.
