{Capturing December} Day 24: "Favorite Part of Christmas Eve"

Attending a midnight candlelight service. Twas amazing and awe inspiring. The postlude organ piece of "Joy to the World" was simply phenomenal. It was a beautiful way to begin Christmas morning.

I forgot about the photo challenge until late in the evening.  The only scarf handy was the one I had tied my hair up in.

{Capturing December} Day 10: "Wrapping Paper"

This Week's Projects

This week I started a new and quick spinning project. I carded together two of my colorways, "CHESTNUT" and then a small blue and green braid from one of my samplers. I also added a little bit of angora to the mix. The resulting yarn is a heavy worsted, almost bulky in parts. I have a gift in mind for it. We'll see. I only carded about half of it. So this is roughly two ounces.  I love carding together special combinations of fiber to spin. They always come out so unique and beautiful.
I'm also doing some crocheting. I ordered this yarn during Knit Picks Cyber Monday sale for a gift I am making. I haven't done any crocheting in quite awhile. I can certainly tell because after only two evenings of steady crocheting this past weekend, my wrist was cracking constantly while I was crocheting! However this pattern goes fairly fast so I am hoping it is done soon. I prefer to knit.
Speaking of gift-making, Christmas is fast approaching!  I still feel like I have so much to do! How about you? Are you working on any projects for your friends and loved ones?

"Capturing December" photo-a-day challange


Day 1: "Your View"
During the month of December I am doing this {Capturing December} photo-a-day challenge. So far it has been a lot of fun. I am using Instagram for this photo challenge as it is fast, easy, and portable. Then I can just transfer the photos to my blog. The day after Thanksgiving our phone server was having a stellar black Friday deal that I couldn't pass up. My old blackberry curve was on its last leg anyways. So needless to say, I have been having way too much fun with my new phone! But besides the all the fun stuff, it is also very useful from the business side of things. All the apps, and technology that make a business run that much smoothly are really quite amazing. I am very grateful and blessed to be able to get a phone that is capable of so much. So without further ado, here are the first 4 days of the photo challenge! 
Day 2: "Favorite Holiday Movie"
Day 3: "Red"
Day 4: "Joyous"
