I haven't been doing much at my workdesk lately (except for the card below). It's time for Christmas knitting. Only I get distracted. I get distracted A LOT, and I had ADHD so it's challenging to pick up exactly where I left off. So I printed the pattern at 200% and broke down the pattern into sets of 10. Because, I can count to 10  (or if I get distracted can sort it out). It's a lot of doublechecking, but fingers crossed I'll have it done in time for Christmas.  In case you were wondering it's a hat with 172 stitches, 2 colours on size 1 (US) needles. The things we offer friends in July lol.

My take on the snow challenge for Papertrey Ink, Dachshund Thru the Snow, which was a take on the globe I made for my father...

'Stache'n Thru the Snow. Which moves with the aid of a magnet under the globe.

Head over to Julia's Stamping Ground for more crafty goings ons : D.

That dachshund made me smile! I thought is was a rather odd looking reindeer until I read what you wrote....
Thanks for letting me look over your shoulder,
Sorry I'm a bit late but I always take my time and I love to look and read, click on links etc and that sometimes takes me all week!
Have a good one,

Size one needles!!! WOW. I'm impressed. I have a hard time with easy patterns so I haven't tried anything that requires a grid. I have a feeling the older I get and my eyes I won't make it that far! tee hee.

I love the Daschun in the snow card. That would be a perfect card for a friend of mine.

I've had my Thanksgiving meal so it was a perfect time to visit desks - either that or take a nap!!

Happy belated WOYWW

Love the 'stashe' project and the card looks great. Your knitting sounds like a real labour of love - I know it will be appreciated, after all your hard work. Hang on in there, it will get done! Hugs, Chris # 8
