I've also cast on the scarf. A simple pattern with a wavy pattern. Hopefully it will be a quick knit and find its way under the tree for a special someone. Sorry the photo isn't very good. The yarn is Plymouth Kudo in shades of blue and green, really quite lovely.
As for the reading, we are still digging through the Christmas book basket. The girls picked out one of my favorites, The Best Christmas Pageant Ever. And I am trying to spend a little time reading The Christmas Tree, the story of the Rockefeller Center tree.
Don't forget to hope over to Ginny's blog and see all the lovely projects and wonderful book suggestions.
