on the faithful evening of decemeber 19th my brother called me and asked me to knit him a scarf for christmas...huh?! thanks for giving me less than a week notice, brother!!!!!!!!!!! the next day i realized that i had to knit like the wind, aka 10 inches a day.

let me tell you people, it was a christmas miracle! because i did it! i finished a 72 in. scarf in about a week. WHOA.

when i told him that scarves take me the longest to knit of pretty much anything i knit, he said he asked for that because he thought it would be the fastest. @_@

live and learn.

well hello! guess who's back with a brand new hat! :)

i finished this bad boy during a storage wars marathon, i thought it was high time to replace my salmon colored hat (it was a bit stretched out)

i also thought it was would be nice to have a brand new hat to wear home to michigan! after one canceled flight, i'm schedule to fly out tonight (hopefully!) it will be nice to get some family time after my first christmas away from home! i stayed here in nyc and then we got hit by a big snow storm that meant flights were canceled left and right. and i love snow as much as the next guy, but not when it messes up my travel plans!

i have a new project that i am really excited to work on when im home and on the flight :)

here i am enjoying the snow!

hope everyone had a great holiday and has a great new year!
