WIP Wednesday #76 - A Very Festive Week

Happy Wednesday everyone!

I am in Nova Scotia for our "early Christmas". In fact, Christmas #1 is tomorrow! It's been a very fun week so far. We have walked into the woods and cut down a tree which the kids had a blast decorating. We've been looking at all the lights and decorations around town and doing various festive crafts at the house. My husband and I have even snuck out to see a local concert. It's lobster season here and there are lots of boats in the bay. It's been lovely to get a feel for the place in a different season.

I have also started a new project! I'm doing quite well with my Christmas deadlines (one pair of legwarmers and one doll's dress by actual Christmas to go...). And my cousin came here with a beautiful cowl she got at Ann Taylor Loft. Although, my cousin isn't much of a knitter, here mom is. So I have been to a local yarn shop and picked up yarn and needles for the three of us and we are trying our hands at a little reverse engineering.

I started yesterday using Sidar Faroe and this what I have so far.


I wish I had thought to take pics of the others.  We are having are having a lot of fun.

Anyways, I will wish you all an early Merry Christmas and get back to it. I hope you are having a great week.

Cheers, Nikki
