Red Along: Prize Draw

Story of Week and Stash Enhancement  I purchased some Big Twist Yarns, Rainbow Classic in the Ocean Abyss color way for a baby blanket, and I believe that is all.
Ted Updates: He came home on 3/25, and he is doing well. We have one fall under our belts, so hopefully that won't happen again. He is going 4 days a week to a Day Program for his Therapy. I see little improvements every day but recovery is very slow. He is walking short distances with a cane and assist at home. Please continue to keep us in our prayers

Story of Week and Stash Enhancement No new stash.  I have done more crocheting than knitting in the last two weeks, which you will see in FOs. We had a big snow on the weekend after the last podcast. It didn't keep me from going to work on Monday however. Had a good crafting weekend. 
I have been doing little vicarious crafting and I want to share with you my newest obsession. I saw this on the Kristi Glass channel, and I can't stop looking and dreaming about making one. bypollevie

Story of Week and Stash Enhancement No New stash.  Over the last 2 weeks I have been knitting mostly monogamous on the Mermaid tail to get it finished in time for Christmas, and I succeeded, which you will see in FOs.
We had a really good Christmas. Ted and I spent Christmas eve wrapping gift, and unwrapping our gifts. I got spoiled with perfume, a year supply of Bath and Body works, and the new Apple watch. 
On the 22 of December we welcomed The new  Great Nephew Anson. Mom and Baby are great.
We spent Christmas day at Ted's Sons house with all the kids and family. It was just great.
First Episode in January I will be Reviewing my UFOs and deciding to Frog or finish.

Story of Week and Stash Enhancement Purchased some Mainstay everyday basic yarn, and Redheart SS in pink ombre for a project in my WIPs, also purchased some I Love this yarn is cypress Landing, and Denim colors, and some Loops and Threads Copenhagen in the Rainy Day Colorway, and some bead stuff that is still in bag. Most of purchases done while I was in KC with my sister. It was a wonderful time, seeing my sister, and getting to know Scarlet, who is now crawling. The rest of the 2 weeks has been status quo, working and knitting, and Christmas movies. :-)
I also attempted Vlogmas but discovered it was little to much for me and my life.
