Hope your holidays were good ones!

I am posting this blog update on the new toy my boyfriend bought me for Christmas: A new laptop! Yea! (although I know that he had ulterior motives in buying it. Now I can blog and surf to my heart's content and not interfere with his World of Warcraft playing!)

I had managed to finish the Flared Lace Smoke Ring for my boyfriend's Mom:

She loved it! I also included a bottle of Eucalan so she can care for it easily.

To recap: This is the Flared Lace Smoke Ring from Heartstrings, and it was knit in Michell & CIA Luxury Collection Alpaca Cashmere. (For those of you not familiar with what a Smoke Ring is, it's like a cowl that can be worn around your neck instead of a scarf, and it can also be pulled up around your head like a hood).

My current WIP on the needles is this:

A pair of mittens to match my Tassled Fez. I am almost done the second one. I am using Patons Classic Wool Merino in Winter White and Blue Storm, and the pattern is an adapted version of the Turkish Mittens from Vogue Knitting Mittens and Gloves.
Well, that's it for now!
