Sophia's Tomten, Mom's Addi Turbo set

I'm pretty happy to be working with the Jarbo Garn yarn again as I re-start this tomten. The yarn feels like you're knitting with spun cloud - so puffy.

My friend asked me to start this for her niece. My originial intention was to have Griffin's and Sophia's in the same yarn, different colors so they'd match, but I stopped when she said the hot colors may be too much for her sister in law, but after she go Grif's tomten and was so pleased with it she agreed. The yarn is so great. I'm not one for a mix of these colors if i were to hear about it, but when I look at it I have to say I would totally put this on my kid...when I have one.

And Mom picked up this set of turbos that Jackie bought for herself and brought with her on Friday to the ChalkDust Knitter's meet up. I showed up late, had a Christmas party for work. The food was good and I got to have a beer - been craving one for a while and haven't gotten around to it.

The Tomten is really lovely. I'm very fond of Järbo Garn,too (yarn = yarn in Swedish) and right now I'm doing a pair of Magic Mittens with Järbo Garn's Raggi.

You have done so many lovely things, the blanket is wonderful and the BSJ ... oh,dear how cute it is!
