What We've Finished (a.k.a. FOs):
- Still nothing! I know, I'm a slacker. :)
1 Mala necklace for Kristi & 3 Shamballa bracelets: 1 for Eddie to match Kristi's Mala and 2 for swap presents
What We Couldn't Resist (a.k.a. Stash Enhancement):
- Kristi got a great destash deal on a massive sweater quantity of Schachenmayr Extra Merino and plans to make the Adventurous Cardigan...eventually. Kristi also received a destash of knitting magazines and a Swap box of Post Holidays After Care items which included two great Renaissance Costume sewing patterns!
- Dana actually did some shopping (shhh, don't tell Mark). She picked up the Bevel Scarf kit from Brooklyn Tweed in the Evergreen color way. She picked up some new crafting goodies from Joann including an adorable sewing basket and a new embroidery sampler. She also received the best Christmas gift ever from Kristi in the form of a gorgeous mini skein kit from Ancient Arts Yarns ("Sassy Cats II").
