I keep meaning to take a picture of the next Christmas gift I started, the multidirectional scarf. I started it over the weekend, and it's such an addictive pattern, it's almost finished. I've even been knitting it in the car on the way in to work (but not the way home because it's dark). I'm making a colorblock version, because I'm trying to stick to stash yarn for presents this year, rather than ordering a bunch of new yarn like I usually do. But I think it would be very pretty in a variegated yarn. I have my eye on some colorways from Blue Moon Fiber Arts.
Also, Mike took photos of the weightlifting meet, but we still haven't gotten them off the camera. Soon, I promise!
