Levis Rigid 501's: Wear Update

I am loving the finish that is being created on my rigid 501's (from STAG in Austin).  Now that the weather is cold in Texas (it's almost January and the leaves are just falling off of the trees--looks more like fall), I am able to wear them just about every day--slipping them on in the am to walk the dogs and wearing them thru to the evening.

Cotton Ribbed Throw

A ribbed, cotton throw I made for my sister for Christmas--basic 3 x 3 rib pattern with double yarn.  I think it turned out nice and will be great for year 'round use.

I hope all are having a splendid Christmas Season.  I just love this tree and the rug beneath it--just makes you want to snuggle under the tree and open presents--or take a long winter's nap!!

Handmade Goodness

There is still enough time before Christmas for some hand-made gifts!!  These cotton wash cloths knit quickly.  (especially if you don't change colors like I did with these)
