Well, we had a great family Christmas celebration at Teresa & Guy's house. Teresa is my oldest sister and a huge Nebraska fan. Go Big Red! Yesterday, my brother Stuart went to Hobby Lobby to buy his wife Priscilla some yarn/knitting gifts (she just took up knitting this fall) and I got a little bit of yarn, too. It was all red, of course. So, after our Christmas meal and a game of poker, which I quickly lost, I pulled out the 1 skein of red eyelash and size 13 needles. I cast on 14 stitches and knit in garter stitch until the entire skein was gone. It was a fun and decorative hostess gift for my sister Teresa... knit all the while the poker game was going on. Quick and easy does the trick. Oh. I took orders for all the other girls in the family, so be looking for lots and lots of scarves over the next few weeks.
