That’s what is felt like in those last crazy days before Christmas. I actually spend all of Christmas day knitting on the Argosy Blanket and almost got it done. I finished it the day after. Darling Husband Carl and Simon are both so thrilled with it that they won’t let me block or edge it. Here are a couple of photos.

You may notice in the background of the second photo the boys Christmas presents. They love their cheese chaser. They spent at least 30-45 minutes on Christmas morning playing with it. That is a looooong time for my little ADD cats. Oscar was the first one to check it out.

Soon Simon had to come over and get involved.

So back to the knitting for a minute. I was doing a mental wrap up of my holiday knitting. You may remember that I was not going to do a lot of holiday knitting this year. I made 6 dishcloths, a pair of Men’s socks, a scarf, two hats, and a full sized blanket. Yeah, not much knitting. So now I’m on to my next projects. I’ve been making lobby dishcloths. The pattern is at masondixonknitting.com. Here is a photo of the most recent one. I’m really in love with the edging on this dishcloth. Is it wrong to be in love with an edging?

I’m also making a pair of socks for my pal Mike B. They are going to have flames on them. I’ll post a picture as soon as they aren’t just solid black. So that’s my update. I have the whole day off today, hooray. So I can work on the socks, and my thank you notes. I hope that everyone had as wonderful a holiday as I did.

Dishcloth as art…luvs it! I wonder if the folks back in the kitchen at Tao and Pure use them?
