I have knit over three feet on my Ebony Elite Swap pal's scarf. I am happy with the stitch pattern I chose. It is making a very nice scarf. Can't share any photos, it's a surprise!! Other little bits and pieces have come in the mail for her package.
I got three packages from Claudia the Wollmeise and she has the coolest bags. They have German-English knitting terminology printed on them. She also put the translations inside the bags. I am in two KALs with German speaking co-knitters. I should be able to translate some of their posts now. Very cool. I have added several lace weights, and two worsted weight colorways to my collection.
I have not been on Ravelry much, other than to check the forums for my Knit Alongs. I need to update my projects and stash. I finished a sock and started the second one. I need to photo and add the Lace Garn in Pfefferminz Prinz, it is unbelievable. The colors just make me so so so happy. The blues are so rich and deep. I am going to ball wind some tonight. The Campari Orange is delicious. I don't know what I am going to make with it, I just liked the colors. But I don't want any socks this color or a scarf. Maybe a pair of fingerless gloves.
I have my Christmas gift assignments. I can't wait to shop. I have a short list this year. I don't usually have a list at all, since I shop all of the time. I bought myself a 10th Anniversary Gift, I have been with this firm10 long years. Just kidding, they actually flew by. I did not know about the 10 year bonus - I was expecting flowers or something. So I picked up the Palermo GM which I had been eyeing for awhile.
