Grocery Bag Holder

I am super excited about what I made today!!  Since we moved into our condo this past August, our garbage bag collection has been sitting in a ripped gift bag and just looking generally untidy.  BUT NO LONGER!

Ta da!!!  Introducing my new grocery bag holder!  I got the idea for the pattern from The one on that site looks 10x cooler than mine but for today I wasn't really concerned about spending time making something look cool - I was going for function, and FAST!  One of my goals for the coming year is to simplify my life and declutter.  So with that, I wish you a Happy New Year!!!  JEM

Christmas Scarf

Oh my goodness, it's been a long time since I finished ANYTHING!  Work got busy, so many Christmas concerts, etc., and then we got a kitty (who makes knitting a challenge!).  But, a friend of mine asked me to knit a scarf for her friend for Christmas, and I've gladly obliged!  Anything to keep crafty.  :)

This is a wonderfully soft baby pink scarf, made with the same Charisma yarn from Michaels that I used on my sister's scarf.  Non-itchy is a big hit :)  The scarf is about 4 feet long, and has a border to prevent it from curling in too much.  I just have to block it tonight, and I'll give it to my friend tomorrow!  

And since she's so cute - Sunny!  Merry Christmas everyone!  JEM
