Just under the wire-



You might remember the Wren-Along from May.  I whined.  I complained.  But I knit the whole thing up like a good girl.  


Suddenly, here I am, days away from Christmas.  And I need to finish it up so I can gift it to MIL.  I had the Pfaff hour at my house, a little Euclann bath, and a little tumbling into the dryer (I wanted a denser fabric.) 


Here she is, done up in the Elann Highland Silk that DH bought me for Christmas last year.  Eight or nine balls, if memory serves me right.  Brooch from Burlingtons, about 5.00.  I am going for MIL points this year!

Wow, you must have scored major MIL points for that beauty! ;-}

Hope your holiday was peaceful. (?)

I agree with joan, that must have been big time MIL points. Can we see a picture in the wild? It looks so much prettier than I had thought it would. Great job. Daryl
