This keeps happening....

How did it get to be almost December?  Yikes!  Well, here I am again, almost at the end of the month.  I have a new project on the needles, the Wave Cardigan, from the Knit Real Shetland book from Jamieson and Smith.  I'm using a kit I bought from J&S.

I'm a bit farther along than that last picture shows.  The first picture is a just because, cause the colors are so pretty.  :)  I have the sleeve steek stitches in and am chugging along on the body of the sweater.

This past Thursday was Thanksgiving in the US.  We were lucky enough to have both kids come home for the weekend.  It was wonderful!

On Saturday, we took advantage of both kids being home, and went off to cut down a Christmas tree for the first time in years.

It was a lovely day.  And we found a new kind of fir that we really like -- a Canaan Fir.  We've never gotten a tree so early.  I hope it lasts for Christmas.  It smells heavenly!

Mia was a bit disgruntled by the extra people in the house.  She's sleeping it off now.  Silly cat.

Hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season!
