The sun is shining today and I should get out and walk.  Shoulda....Woulda... Coulda...   I have really fallen off my 10,000 steps wagon.  And it is hard {for me} to get motivated when it is 28 degrees outside.

It is not that I haven't been busy.  I just finished this Christmas gift for my sister-in-law.  It was a joy to knit out of Malabrigo Worsted in Ravelry Red. 

The pattern is Ruffled and Rouched by Pam Powers.  Here is her Ravelry picture for an idea of how it is to be worn. 

I also am working on a lovely pair of fingerless mitts.  I taught myself the Magic Loop and I am delighted not to be using 5 doublepoints.  You can find a great tutorial on the Magic Loop here on the KnitPicks website.  I don't know why I waited so long to try it!

Oooh, very pretty -- I LOVE the pink! Have you seen any good patterns for fingerless gloves that have the flap -- so that you can flip it off to text and then put it back on? I'd love to make some of those.

And we've passed the threshhold of cold for walking/running for me -- Brrrr!

Sister-in-law? I think each of your quilt friends needs one of those! :-) Gorgeous! You are so talented!
