December 15, 2005
'Twas 10 days before Christmas, when all through the house,|
not a project was finished, not even a knitted mouse.
I don't know about you, but that's my tale of woe on this December 15th. Why aren't I more panicked? Because I have an ace up my sleeve: my foolproof last-minute buttoned stole pattern. It's shamelessly simple, and you can finish it in just a few hours using leftover yarns from your stash.

In the Forums: Snag-Free Fingers?
Winter's cold dry air can often leave our hands chapped, which causes them to snag our yarn when we knit. What are your favorite hand creams and lotions for combatting winter dryness?
