The Ornaments are off the Tree

I love having the tree up but more and more needles are falling. I took the ornaments off the tree but left the lights in place. We'll leave it that way for a few more days or even a week, then wrestle the lights off and take it to be shredded. Sigh. I hate to get rid of it.

I am test knitting a design for Melanie. She designed some very nice fingerless mitts and I like the yarn she used, so I am doing that test knit now. I find the pattern to be a nice Rhythmic knit with an intuitive stitch pattern. I also plan to play a bit next week (after chemo day) with bead placement. I think these mitts could look good with some carefully placed beads.

I knitted on the Cancer Cameo yesterday during the football game, so that made progress. I was going to try for pictures today but it has been foggy and gray outside. I'm not sure when the sun will shine again .....

ETA that was last Sunday

We just took our tree down a week or so ago (because we were having people over and needed the space). I like putting it up, hate taking it down. The holiday decorations should definitely be around long into January!
