In the current issue of Knitty, I found THE pattern. The Argosy scarf is lacy, but not too fru-fru. The lace design is simple enough to memorize, yet gives enough challenge that it's not boring. Here's how it's going after one ball. Thank you, Pal!

Yesterday was an all-day driving event. I went up to pick up Mom and bring her down for the family Christmas festivities. We got in at about ten pm and I was exhausted. But greeting me were two things that made my heart dance ...my little dog, Latte....she's ALWAYS happy to see me.

DO NOT LOOK AT THIS...
if you are a family member or friend that may be exchanging gifts with me this Christmas!
If you do, I will haunt you wearing this....
I guess I surpassed my limits of photos on this page. Instead of giving you hit and miss broken links, I've set up a photo album of my handmade gifts. Take a look!

However, a friend from work (whose birthday is also this week!) changed all that. We spent most of the day in downtown Portland, doing a little shopping, sipping hot beverages in Pioneer Square in the sunshine (!), watching dancers under the Christmas tree, and listening to The Dickens Carolers in the mall. We topped it off with a wonderful meal at Macaroni Grill where we were serenaded by an beautiful young woman whose operatic voice gave the best rendition of the birthday song ever! And in Italian!!
What a great day! The weather was perfect and the friendship was spectacular! It was a truly special birthday. Thank you, Holly! And Happy Birthday to YOU!!

Today, I got an early birthday gift...delivered!! I happened to be home with a yucky cold, so was here to receive it myself. Delicious chocolate-dipped apple wedges from Edible Arrangements. Yummmmy!! So, it's feed a cold....right??
Now, back to the first box... I haven't taken photos yet, but trust me...they're bee-you-tee-fulll! Her first ever felting project is now my favorite bag! She also included silk roses, chocolate, several knitting patterns, and three skeins of Royal Bamboo in a gorgeous green. I'm still dreaming of all the possibilities. Thank you, Pal. I feel wonderfully spoiled.
