Secret Santa
Every 6 weeks or so I get together for lunch with a group of my high school graduation friends. Our next luncheon is in November and we are going to do a Secret Santa exchange.

I asked for suggestions a few weeks ago on what to get (limit around $10) and this is what I came up with. Since we could do "gag gifts" I was thinking it would be funny if I could find a bottle of Boone's Farm wine to put into the bottle cover. Since I graduated in the 60's I'm sure some of you will remember that wine. I wonder if they still make it???

Here is a picture of the wine bottle covers I have made so far. I think the green one is perfect for the Secret Santa. They are both the same cable pattern but harder to see on the green one.

puzzled over pattern
I have bought this lovelly cardi patterns ans stunned to find it said to cast on 290 stitches for the back in my size., it seems a huge amount to me. I have compared similar patterns and they are much less

I inthended to work it in Cascade 220 superwash which is considered light worsted which is also comsidered a DK which the pattern is. The Cascade is almost right for the gauge

Knitted appliques for grandaughter afghan
I am knitting a C 2 C "comfort" afghan for my granddaughter and am running out of time to knit small appliques like flowers/leaves/bunnies etc to attach to the finished piece.
I am knitting in chunky yarn.
Has anyone got a site where I might purchase knitted appliques to sew onto the blanket for her Christmas? I want to give her something warm special and personal since her mom left.
My KP friends always come up with a plan

train cars quilt completed for a new grandson
Not sure if only knitting articles can be displayed on this site, but wanted to share a difficult undertaking I just completed. Obviously, this is more for a child than a newborn, but hope he'll enjoy it one day.

snowflower sweater completed
This was a challenge from the start, which is why I tackled it. Had never started a sweater in the middle before . . .and with a crochet cast on at that. Could have probably made a medium instead of the small size,as I'm used to more "room". But, all in all, I'm pleased with the outcome.

Labels for socks?
I am looking for some nice way to gift my socks for Christmas or birthdays, I have seen some have labels on them that look really nice. The labels were about four inches wide (just a guess) that wrapped around the socks but I would just be happy with any ideas that have been used and where to find them. Thank you.
