Got my Christmas cards from Costco- they had no laptops. I haven't found any great deals online other than the ones I really want at best buy, and they are not available

So now I'm working on addresses (did a bad job at keeping track last year), online buying for the family our church adopted, and lesson plans and menu for next week. Wish it was knitting instead!
Slouchy hat or tam? Market bag?

She was fine. The main issue was being flexible in case I need to visit my mom during her treatment, so family comes first with nearly everyone I know!

Re: KAL ~ Think Christmas (or other winter holiday)~ Nov 25-Dec 1

I just finished a Saffron sweater in MM Woodland Tale and Berroco Vintage Wine for my toddler. Gorgeous! Now I have to figure out what to make the baby. I was going to do a Hollis sweater to wear with dark green upcycled longies... but they got in the wash and shrunk. So, now to decide on longies w/ a cute dress or a romper or a sweater. No idea. In the meantime, I've done one baby hat for a niece's baby and have another hat OTN.

Oh, I also did a hat for me out of the MM / Berroco. It was for DD1 but it's too big, so I get it!

I'll get pictures up shortly.

My baby is 10weeks and in size 3-6mo. Any cute Christmas ideas? I've got MM Woodland tale and natural.
