Holiday Recap!

Holiday Season 2008 I think was a success, even if we were all a little poorer than last year.
Highlights include visiting my Mom and my sister in NC and getting to visit The Biltmore House, wonderful holiday parties in and around Baltimore, getting some new books, new yarn, and new clothes, and having relative success in airline travel! Even if I did have to change flights, airports, and airlines both going there and back.

Finished my Mom's February Lady Sweater CHRISTMAS EVE, but I don't have any pictures! Fits well, and I hope she send me some soon so I can post them!
With my little bit of Christmas money I got 10 balls of Kathmandu Aran from Purl's Yarn Emporium in Asheville, which I've been drooling over forever! And a very nice person on Ravelry trader me for 2 more balls, so I have enough to make a hooded cabled cardigan!
I also bought sock yarn for another pair of mom-socks, and some chartreuse laceweight yarn from Paradise Fibers, also in Asheville.

Also finished J's reversible Chullo hat! Handspun chunky alpaca, and orange Malabrigo chunky. I LOVE the Malabrigo, will definitely have to get some of that for me!

Am working on a Brea Bag from Berroco, using Lamb's Pride worsted, doubled on 9s. I Love this color!

First of all, love your dress in the first picture! That laceweight is gorgeous. I had no Idea Paradise Fibers was down there. I've looked at the website a few times but never checked the location. Glad you had a good holiday!
