Yarn & Coffee

Finally my days are getting back on track. I love vacation, don't get me wrong. I love having everyone home, baking yummy treats, and making hot cocoa for after snowball fights. But boy oh boy am I happy as a clam to have everyone back in school and most of my day to myself :)
I've been thoroughly enjoying my new yarns Hubs gave me for Christmas...

Nice and squishy :)
Love them all to pieces!

Our Christmas Theme this year was "On your person" which meant all presents had to be something you could wear. So he said as long as I make *something* I can wear his present passes the test.
That means I get to use the rest for whatever I want, like the Zombie weaving above :)

I made a few small square looms for weaving, and eventually making them into pincushions.

One of my "On your person" presents from my sister, can't help but think of Special Agent Cooper and his damn fine cup of coffee :)

Oh, i just love the possibilities of new yarn!! Ah....
I bought the pattern for Pumpkinhaus's little gnome hats and now I am covering everyone I know 3 and under in pretty little gnomyness ;)

Oh Heather! I love love PumpkinHaus's gnome hat pattern! I don't have the patience to knit one, I'm hoping for one pre-made :) For a 30 year old head though, ha.

Nice yarn! The little coffee cup ring is sweet too. Glad you're back in the swing!
