I Want A Hippopotamus For Christmas

Not really, but that song is stuck in my head and I smile everytime I hear it 😀

So, Christmas came early for me since the UPS man showed up this morning with a rather large box.  No, he didn’t bring a boatload of yarn (although, that would have been lovely too!)  He did bring something else that’s been on my wishlist for ages…

Meet Scarlett O’Hara!  She now lives in my kitchen and she’s red 🙂

In the midst of all the usual hustle and bustle that’s a part of this time of year, I’ve managed to get a wee bit of knitting done.  Look… more red!

It’s the same pattern that I finished last month.  This time I’m using Tosh Vintage in my favorite color ever :: T.A.R.T!!!!  Kiki picked out this yarn and I was so surprised she didn’t pick purple or pink.  I don’t know if I can finish this before the end of the year seeing that I still haven’t finished all my Christmas shopping and then there’s that small matter of wrapping presents!  It’s a good thing there is no knitting police to enforce deadlines 😉

Despite all of the chaotic frenzy that surrounds the holidays, I hope that each one of you is enjoying family, fun and love during this special time of year!
