|Temperature - December 15|
Temperature - I am happy to say that I am only three days behind on temperature and if I can spend a bit of time this week stitching on it I will be able to keep it caught up. I know that the year is almost over and after stitching the 31st on this piece I will still need to put the scale and then add "Toronto" but it is getting closer to being finished.

|Linen and Threads Mystery SAL ' 18 - Dec 23|
The information for the 2019 SAL was just released this morning so now it is time for me to figure out what fabric and what threads I will be using for it. He did inform us that the size is going to be a smaller piece next year and it won't be a band sampler so on the 1st of January we will see what it looks like.
Cocker in the Rye - over the last while I have had the desire to start a new piece and just couldn't wait until the 1st of January to start the piece that I have kitted up for the January 1st start so I started something different. Cocker in the Rye is another Heaven and Earth Design and this one is 2.5 inches by 15 inches so yes a narrow and long design.

The first few stitches got added to this piece on the 23rd of December and now to see how quickly it can get finished. I am aiming this as one of the pieces that I get finished in 2019 so that may help me focus on stitching it instead of bouncing around all over between the different pieces that I seem to work on.
|Workday scarf - December 23|
The yarn that I used was Woolike which is a fingering weight yarn that actually has no wool it in but it is great to work with. The yarn is actually 85% acrylic and 15% nylon and it is something that I love working with.
I had been working on this scarf on and off this month and then last weekend I got to the half way mark which was when the increases stopped and then I wanted to see what it looked like. The pattern was extremely simple so that meant that being able to pick this up and knit a couple of rows wasn't a problem when I had those few minutes.
I have a bunch more projects that I will be trying to give a bit of attention to over the next week but I will see what I actually get done. Mystery SAL and Temperature are two of the main projects that I want to move forward this week so will see how everything else goes.
I now have some work to complete this morning so it is time for me to go and get that done before finishing up preparing for Christmas which is tomorrow. To everyone that celebrates may you have a Very Merry Christmas and for those who don't I hope you have a wonderful week.
