My first parcel of Christmas gifts was mailed yesterday. I feel very organized and proud of myself for that one. My cousin and her two kids celebrate their birthdays on Dec. 7th, 9th and 11th... As if this time of year isn't busy enough as it is! So, I mailed off 3 birthday gifts and 3 Christmas gifts yesterday (I know I said that I was organized and awesome, but I actually missed the Dec. 7th birthday... oh well, it's fun to spread out the gift opening isn't it?)

Among the gifts sent was my Playful Stripes cardigan with it's perfect purple and white flower buttons. Those buttons are the perfect girly finishing touch.

Chris and I have been enjoying our Christmas tree for a good two weeks already. I love it, I plug it in every night and enjoy our festive little nook. My mom kicked our seasonal mojo up a notch when she brought over this beautiful blue poinsettia for us! She knows how much I love blue, this plant is perfect.

I've been knitting lots of Grammy's hats. Here they are all piled up on the table after a little photo shoot out in the snow. I'll try and get a few modeled shots tomorrow and then write up the super simple pattern. I am not tired of knitting these, they are just the perfect hat.

Tuques for everyone!


  1. I know what you mean about December birthdays -- my sisters have their birthdays on the 23rd and 25th, and my partner on the 24th. It really adds to the present pile, doesn't it.

    On the bright side, that blue poinsettia is fantastic! I've never seen such a thing, before.

  2. wonderful gifts!! those flower buttons are so amazing. I hear you about the December birthdays- I'm one (Dec 23rd) and my dad and stepdad are also in December. Like they weren't hard enough to shop for to begin with, twice in one month is impossible!

    that blue poinsettia is Stunning. wow.

  3. Having worked as a florist, I have been surrounded by what seemed like an actual sea of pointsettias, and as a result I now utterly and completely despise them, but I've never seen a blue one before, and it's pretty cool.
