I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. I know, I did. I finished my sisters Flared lace smoke ring. Here it is after it was finished.And here it is after she opened it and tried it on.It went together very fast after I figured out to put markers at all repeats. But before that I was having a tough time. Now for some fun stuff. I got several knitting books that I asked for.

And here's one that I didn't ask for, but I absolutely love. My youngest son is in the Marines and my son-in-law found this on Ebay and thought I would like it. I love it!
If I were to make this for Casey, he would kill me. Isn't it funny how times change? This is my next project for my son-in-law.

And to end, since I have no Grandchildren, this is a picture of my grandpuppies at my house on Christmas. Aren't they cute?

The smoke ring looks wonderful. What a lovely stitch pattern!
I've got two of your new books. The socks in "KNitting on the road" are wonderful, even though the pictures are a bit dark. Your "grandpups" are adorable! :o)

The smoke ring is just beautiful - I LOVE the lace pattern!
(I've got all 4 of those books on your table, although I haven't used 2 of them yet...)
