I hope that everyone had/is having a great holiday. Mine was different than previous years but it was still enjoyable. This year not only were my parents in a new house, but Pete was there with me and we spent Christmas Eve and part of Christmas Day with his family.
The beautiful Christmas tree at my parents' house. Decorating it is one of my favourite part of the holidays and I was so happy to have Pete's help this year.
After making sure that the cat was settled safely with my folks we were off to Pete's parents' house. Since this was my first Christmas with them I came bearing a pie (apple) with Julie's patented star top crust!
The pie was a big hit.
Pete's mom is a knitter so I knew that she would appreciate what I had made for her
Dayflower Scarf made with Silky Wool
Doesn't it look great on her?
I'm so glad my parents moved because their new house is only 90 minutes from Pete's parents which made for a very pleasant drive on Christmas (before the move it would have been more than 4 hours).
As always, my granny loves her socks.

I wasn't sure what to give my uncle Peter so on a whim I decided to make him Sheldon. It was a great choice because I think he likes it better than anything I've given him before.
Pete and I had fun with the wrapping
Uncle Peter has named this turtle Tommy and apparently he and Granny have been fighting over it. I think I might need to check out more knitted toy patterns in the future :)
It's such a great feeling to have something you knitted with love be so well received. Christmas is much more fun now that I'm a knitter. More posts to come in which I will show off the yummies I received and the present which made my parents cry (in a good way).
One more thing, I made a little hat for Bertha's daughter June to celebrate her first Christmas. You've got to check out the cute pictures!
