A few links which were of interest to me or were just plain fun. Angie's sweater will be blocking over night and so will my son-in-laws socks.
Here is a link to create your own snow globe. If I remember correctly the site is sponsored by Johnson and Johnson.

Here you'll find a marvelous scarf. It's knit in a cabled brioche stitch and is reversible.

Berroco Yarns has a group of special free patterns for little sweater ornaments.

And most important, if you have odds and ends of wool sock yarn laying around and have a little time after the holidays, Afghans for Afghans are looking for newborn socks, not preemies, just regular newborns for a shipment next year. Due date right now is February 2, 2008. They are also looking for hats and blankets, but ask that those who knit make socks and hats while those who crochet make blankets. They have certain stipulations. You'll find all the information in the link below. If you do not have a sock pattern for newborns, let me know or just "Google" for "baby socks". The first few links gave me plenty of patterns.

** Focus on Newborns Continues Through February ** Good news that CURE Hospital has asked us to continue sending wool blankets, hats, and socks for newborns! We are more than happy to fulfill this request -- knowing that knitters and crocheters love making these small gifts that are greatly needed by the most vulnerable. CURE Hospital delivers newborns every day -- more than 300 babies each month. Specific newborn campaign details are here for reference:

Our general guidelines and mailing addresses are here:

Our next due date is sometime in February. We'll announce a specific day a little bit later. (You may send in your newborn items as soon as you are ready.)

So, let us "Knit on!"
