A Season of Gifts

I know our swap with the Knit Girllls was Fallmageddon, but I really feel as if I was given an early Christmas present. Thanks to Knitwhiskers for the wonderful swap package. You can see the pumpkin candle and the adorable pumpkin stitch markers. There's a fall blessings mug with three types of hot chocolate (yum). She already gave me Jared Flood's Celes pattern by Ravelry gift and now included two free Rav patterns for Cat Bordhi's Cashmere Moebius Cowl and the Keyhole Scarf by Lineke Kroon. There is enough Handpainted South Texan Angora Goats wool to make either. The blues are my favourite. Plus 400 yards of squishy softness from Brooks Farm Yarn in Lancaster Texas.
I have never been to Lancaster, but I have been to San Antonio and I loved the open friendliness of the Texans. I understand how they can believe they live in a distinct culture.
Thanks so much Renee for the local treats.

And my D has become Mr. Christmas. Already he strung all the lights, and helped pick out and buy gifts. I'm working two days this week and really appreciate the way he pitches in while still practicing veterinary medicine. Maybe that's why I'm knitting for him.

Those are your blues. Reminds me of the sky we can't see through the cloud.
