Now that we are all slowly creeping out from our turkey comas. I thought I would prove that although I have been sicker than a dog, I have been productive!
First off, my mom got herself a spiffy new digital camera (Mom, please tell Santa I would like the same model…thanks) and sent this great little pic of her tootsies being warmed by the infamous Birthday Socks. When I went home to NY I had to add about an inch and a half to give proper tootsie wiggling room. Ta Dah!
And here is a much better fitting baby hat, modeled by the lovely Casey; she’s a real doll, whipped up on the drive home from NY, 100% Alpaca, and at this rate, he will outgrow it before I get it to Sir Collin!
I took a week and knit for myself and here is the progress on my Ribbi Cardi, I ripped it out about 4 inches into it as I realized…*sigh* I was going to need to knit the next size up.
Then there are these mystery Christmas socks I am knitting…I kinda like the way this works up. I think the intended recipient will really enjoy these.
And here are the mittens I am working on for the monkey, she has requested mittens and a hat for Christmas. Yep, those are some BIG mittens, they are going to be felted. I can’t wait to see how the yarn looks once they are done.
And last but not least, the hubby and I went to look for a new living room suite. We found…I still can’t believe it…a gorgeous sofa with a GLIDER LOVESEAT! Do you know what this means? I can actually sit in a moving chair, very necessary to achieve my perfect zen like knitting state, and sit with the DH at the same time! He loves it! Here are the fabrics We chose: the center will be the color of the furniture and the two accents will be a ton of pillows. Yay! We will probably place our order next year, which really isn’t that far away.
Well, as you can see, I’ve been a busy little kid. Today is no different, today we will pull all the Christmas stuff out of the attic and today I get to make my husband climb up on the roof to hang Christmas lights. I told him we should go Griswald! He said it wasn’t in the budget.
