a shortie

Bugg made it home safely and our first Christmas in our own home in Louisiana was wonderful. The weather has been heavenly but did cool down on Christmas day.

We have been going to basketball tournaments and FYS has gotten a little playing time.

Progress has been made on the Christening gown and I love the way it is turning out. It has little cap sleeves. I did alter the pattern in the lace skirt: First repeat was knit to spec, but every following repeat lost a pattern 1-4 and 13-16 repetition. To compensate for the length, the Frost Flowers pattern was worked 10 times.

I will really need to move on the second half.

Hope you and yours had safe, joyous holidays spent with the ones you love.
