Fox Scarves Finished

Bob and I have had a lovely Christmas. We enjoyed the park's well-attended Christmas Eve service before settling in for the night. On Christmas Day we had homemade cinnamon rolls for breakfast and I roasted a small turkey for our traditional feast. We opted not to participate in the pot-luck even though we were invited by several people as we strolled around outside in the 65 degree weather with Auggie.

I finished the fox scarves for granddaughters Eve and Quinn while watching holiday movies on TV. They were so much fun to make, and really quick to knit.
Here is the link to the free pattern for a werewolf scarf, that I adapted to knit these scarves. 

On Monday I warped up my 12" Ashford Knitters Loom for a krokbragd project, but may not have time to start weaving it until after the New Year. Bob and I have volunteered for the decorating committee again, to help set up for the New Years Eve party Saturday night. We helped on Tuesday to pull decorations out of storage sheds, and will have a meeting this afternoon. We have heard it will be about a six hour task to set up the decorations, and aren't sure when our coordinator will want us to do that.

We have been getting absolutely no sympathy for our chilly temperatures here, which have dropped into the high 50s to low 60s. With wind, which makes it even worse. Stop laughing! It's COLD! Yuma, we've been told, gets chilly weather for the last two weeks in December and the first two weeks in January. After that, it will be nice again. I guess our blood has gotten thinner since our years living in the Northeast. 

Today we are off to Walmart to do a bit of grocery shopping, and to the post office to mail a spindle off to its new home in California. And bake some burger rolls for this evening's hamburgers, attend our decorating committee meeting, and go to choir practice. A busy day!
