  1. What pretty colors for an afghan and those are something I don't see anymire around here. My mom and an aunt used to knit them all the time way back when i was growing up.

    Yay for December and getting Xmas cards in the mail! Imreceived one this week too although again, it seems to be something that's going by the wayside.

    have a wonderfully relaxing weekend!! looking forward to seeing who my penpal will be!

  6. I see we like the same flavor of tea although I drink mainly Chai green tea. The start of your throw looks like it will be as beautiful as your completed afghan!

  9. The afghan and throw look really nice! Fun to have a project finished - and to start another one. :-) Turning a new calendar page is one of my all-time favorite things, too.

  14. Your crochet work is beautiful! I need to go work on sending some cards and would love to participate in the pen pal project, but fear I could not be faithful in participating. Thanks for sharing your five!

  16. I really like the colors in the finished afghan. Finishing a big project always feels so good. I used to love getting Christmas cards but with the price of mailing in Canada right now, almost 90 cents an letter, it's becoming a dying thing. Sad because when I was a kid my mom used to get tons and they'd cover every surface in the living room and we'd read them over and over.

  17. Great job on the afghan. What made me smile this week was seeing my high school peeps as it's been 15 months since we last got together in Novato.
