  • Mood:

Christmas is coming...

and I'm frantically running around trying to get the gifts done. And wrapped.

I finished my SILs present, got a picture, and shipped it out this AM. I'll update the website later this week - I don't *think* she reads here, but you never know. I finished the knitting last week, and the kids helped me dye it. Hope she likes it!

I've started and almost finished a baby hat for Himself's godmother's 6 month old son. I'm using some soft, bumpy, squiggly acrylic in bright primary colors for it. It's hard for me to estimate the size, since I don't have access to any little babies. Ah, well - if anything, it'll be too big. *g*

The loom is starting to sulk again. I've been ignoring it in favor of the knitting....I *really* need to get back in the groove and get those silly dishtowels off. (So much for giving new dishtowels this Christmas!)

My wheel is languishing as well. I've got batt #4 of the first color combo on the bobbin, but don't feel like spinning laceweight right now. I need to just DO it....maybe next week while I'm off. (Provided, of course, that the kidlets Let me spin.)

We delivered the rest of the daycare's prezzies this AM.....a scarf and soap for the director, and soap for the 2 office ladies.

Herself gave her teacher a scarf and soap yesterday; Himself's teacher was out sick but "she'll be there tomorrow, Mama!" We'll see. These 3 scarves were knit by my MIL in that *nasty* eyelash yarn (yeah, the popular thing this year. I've tried to knit with it...but it's ick. And the lashes keep tangling and snarling the needle.), but hey - at least they are handmade! The soap we made earlier in the year - M&P, but very nice.

I think that's it...unless I discover I've forgotten someone else. At least hats are fast and easy to whip out! *eg*

  • OK, so that happened....

    Let's see. The Jeep has been acting up lately - it'll try to start, then "hang" and shake. We took it in last month, but of course the minute we got…

  • It's a Brand New Day!

    Looks like most of America didn't want a felon in office. :whew: We'll see if we dodged a bullet, or fired one. I'm honestly not understanding the…
