Knitting

I've just finished Sadie's Christmas sweater. Ends are worked in and buttons are on. It's going to be quickly and quietly slipped into the gift drawer because the NorDak grandkiddos arriving Sunday.  As they get older I've noticed their interest in my knitting basket has increased!

I love that you do your gift knitting in the summer. Such a great idea! One of these years I'll have to follow your lead.
