Dear Kristen,

I'm in England! It's lovely and cool here with a light cloud cover. Perfect weather if you ask me. ;) On the flight over I started a scarf for my dad in camel coloured Jo Sharp Silk Road Aran. It's not knitting up quite as soft as I thought it might, but the sheen from the added silk content is lovely. I'm hoping to have it finished by the 31st so that I can give it to him as an early birthday present before he leaves the country... Yes, you did hear correctly, the entire family - both sides - will be together this Christmas. It's pure insanity!

I'm also still working away on Si's Christmas sweater. In a moment of inspiration I decided to buy him a leather jacket for Christmas so I'm not quite so pressed to get the sweater done before tomorrow. Good thing since I still have half the right front panel and two sleeves to complete. I'm very pleased with the Cambridge Jacket pattern. It's been a clear and easy knit!

I'm sure there's more to say, but since I'm without a way to upload photos I'll save it for later.

Have a happy holiday! :)

love,
Kate

The Silk Road blocks out a lot nicer than it's original hand. I didn't totally enjoy knitting with it, but my Silk Road Aran Tweed mittens are so soft and warm now that I blocked them.

I'm glad you guys had a good flight! Have a wonderful visit, and merry Christmas!

How did you block them? I was planning on mailing out the scarf today, but I just recieved reprieve since my dad won't get it until this weekend regardless of when it's sent...

:P
