Christmas Eve & Finished Merry Fair Isle Ornament- Blogmas Day 24

Hello Friends,

I hope you are doing well. Today I worked from home until around 2 pm. I was so excited to get started on celebrations for Christmas Eve once we got the okay to sign out. I started wrapping gifts after I was done. First, I would like to share the finished ornament I knitted over the holidays. I used the Merry Fair Isle Ornament pattern from Yarnspirations Design Studio. It was a fun and challenging pattern and there are three other designs that I would like to knit. I used size US 3,3.25 mm double pointed needles to knit and used Joy DK yarn by Loops & Treads in the colorways of white and red.

 My parents gave me a few more pieces for my village. I got some cars as you can see below the red vehicle and the taxi cab are new. I also got the lamp post in the center of the town.

 I was also given the train seen below. This train used to go all the way around my parent's village.

 My parents also gave me this reindeer that we used to have at home. I really love this reindeer so they gave me one. It is now holding some Rudolph stuffed animals beside my couch in the living room.

After I was done work I got to wrapping many gifts for Liam and my family. It was a long task but always enjoyable when I have the Christmas music on.

All wrapped and ready to go

 I was gifted this cute yarn ball and needles from Liam's Dad and Step mom. I really love it. They also got me some other knitting related items like small scissors, a pin for my knitting bag, and stitch markers. They always get me nice pins and knitting related gifts I really appreciate it.

 After I was done wrapping, I made some sugar cookies. I went for the recipe that said "easy sugar cookies". The recipe was pretty simple and so I made them and they were pretty crumbly. Eventually I added more butter and then they became easier to roll into balls and then I make cookie shapes. I had bought some whipped frosting and some green food coloring and mixed it up in a Ziploc and cut a hole at the bottom to make the trees. They taste pretty good!

My plan for the rest of the evening is to watch the classic movie It's a Wonderful Life as I do every Christmas Eve. I will eat some cookies and drink some wine. I am so excited for tomorrow and I hope that you have a wonderful day too. I hope you are finding some peace before the busy Christmas events tomorrow.

Merry Christmas!
