Santa's busy and so am I

I have been finishing up the shopping and wrapping. I feel good about the level of completeness I've achieved. Still have some odds and ends to pick up and a few things yet to arrive via the UPS man.

I finished a "Wavy Flower" Hat by Pick up sticks.

It's super cute.

I started a pair a wrist warmers with the Lorna's Laces in "Flame" from the Loopy Ewe. I actually have one completed and will start the second today. I'll have to photo them when the Girl child is home to model them.

This week is soooo escaping me

I have been super busy doing I don't even know what. I'm trying to finish xmas shopping. There's never enough money, time or items in stock.

I finished Felting Katie's bowl.

Isn't it cute? Well, at least the model is.

I felted the snowbabies and finished the details, too. I'm not sure I like them..... I'm not going to show them until I decide.

I started a new hat. It is "Wavy Flower" a felted hat by pick up sticks. It's seems to be flowing well and I'm looking forward to getting it done. I'm using a Cascade #9404 a deep red as CC and #4002 a charcoal grey as MC.

The Weekend

Saturday we spent the first part of the day shopping and running errands. Just boring necessities stuff. The second part of the day was spent cleaning. We cleaned the loft....The two bedrooms.... cleared off every flat surface and wiped them down. Got rid of lots of things the boys had outgrown/lost pieces to/broke/don't need/want all to get ready for the new and improved xmas things the boys will outgrow/lose pieces/break/not want/need. What a circle.

Next week we'll clean the basement family room..... laundry room.... adult boy's room...... and the girl's room. Uggh!

I did get a very lovely package from http://www.theloopyewe.com/ I was very happy to end the days hard work with some yarn petting. Very relaxing.

Sunday was actually a laid back day. We canceled plans to go to my Mom's because of the threatening weather [which actually was minimal] so I was able to get some knitting done for gifts.
Snow babies and clothes are done.
Just need felting.

I also finished my Love's socks!

Which encouraged him to, umm.... model?

Katie's pre-felted bowl.

Today I've started a new sock with Perchance to Knit, Pond II. I'm undecided about it. We'll see.

I have been fighting with the lights on this stupid xmas village for over an hour. There are cords and non-working lights every where. It's driving me nuts! I would so rather have been knitting on my ML's sock.

Since I have nothing to report on knitting I thought I would insert my favorite Ricky photo from Darla. She sent it via email, wasn't that nice. She also sent a copy of our xmas cards so we could approve of them. They are great. I can't wait 'til people start getting them in the mail. They crack me up.

So now I feel better. Off I go to fight the village.... and the people.

Busy, Busy

We had a very busy weekend. Saturday we met friends at the DIA and enjoyed all the art. I think they did a great job in the remodel. We also went to dinner and enjoyed telling stories and sharing laughs.

Today was put out the holiday decorations day. That's always a little hectic and crazy. But it's mostly done and my husband is happy. Holiday spirit, here we are.

I also finished ML first sock... Now on to the second.

Even Nina knows socks are the way to go!

Knit one, Purl two. Back to the fun.
