Merry Christmas & Solstice Greetings!

I just wanted to wish all of my friends in yarn a Happy and Healthy holiday season regardless of which holiday is celebrated.

I finally finished a 7 1/2 foot long ghan - now I just need to wrap it, a few animal hats for my daughter and have 1 last batch of cookies to make (30 dozen so far and still counting).

It's really hard to be in the Christmas spirit when it's 80 degrees out but I'm trying!

The mad Christmas rush!

I can't be the only crocheter who just realized how far behind I am and how close Christmas is.


I have 2 afghans totally completed and washed just waiting to be gift bagged.

I have a 3rd ghan (2 strands and an N hook) yup - call me a cheater! I'm in a time crunch.  I could say that thick cozy afghans just can't be beat for presents heading north to the colder states and it would be true but it's mostly the time crunch.

I have a 4th afghan that I just realized I will NOT have enough yarn to finish.  I'm going to need at least another pound of red and possibly 2 more pounds of blue. Yup - another 2 strander but this is one of the VERY FEW truly custom ghans I've made.  I was specifically asked to make this one super thick and cozy so i don't feel like I'm cheating but originally - I only bought enough yarn to make it a 1 strander. 

Looks like I have a 100 mile round trip to hit Michael's and Joann's to HOPE they have the colors I need in stock.

So - how about you guys?  Are any of you done for Christmas yet?
