On the Sixth Day of Christmas...

I thought this post would announce good tidings of great joy about a finished scarf, but I think I'm still about 5 inches away.  I'm hoping that a nice glass of wine and a good movie will help move that along.

I'm still determined to find a pattern for the Best Buy scarf.  The closest I've come is a leaf lace pattern and the candle flame pattern (couldn't get link to work - there are several scarves and shawls that use this pattern), but all the examples I've seen are only one color.  I can't imagine how to alternate colors like the scarf on the lady with mobile broadband.

In the meantime, it's still Christmas!  Charlie 3 (formerly known as Little Charlie, but since his 10th birthday he prefers not to be called "little") designed his own stationary for his thank-you letters, with a tree made out of Bakugan.

And here's my little thank-you letter... Dear Reader, Thank you so very much for taking the time to visit my blog this year.  What a joy it is to have a space for knitting preaching and purling (and planting and picture-taking and...) threads together.  I have not been as faithful in writing as some of you have been in stopping by, and hope that in the new year I will not as quickly forget how much I treasure this space.  Thank you again for being here!  May your Christmas continue to be merry and bright, and may your new year begin and continue in happiness!  Peace, Jennifer

Keep on writing and I'll keep on reading!

The scarf look familiar- I'll look for the pattern, too.
