And, I have a cold inside!
Yes, gentle readers, over night I knew something was not right – and I woke up this morning with all the symptoms of a cold brewing.
So, I am sipping on some nice hot coffee (no tea – I am a coffee in the morning kind of girl) and figuring out what I need to get done today to stay “on track” for Christmas.
I finished the December Lights Tam last night and I have about a bazillion ends to weave in before I can give it a little bath and get it blocking! Seriously, when I say a bazillion, I am not kidding! That will occupy a good chunk of the morning – and seems like a good activity to do while sitting on the sofa under a cozy blanket! This is my first real foray into Fair Isle – and I loved it! This hat only took about 20 hours of knitting time! A nice project to start on. I definitely want to knit more Fair Isle – watch for more in 2008!
And, I can finish sock #2 for daughter #1 as well. A nice mindless knitting project.
What is left on my Christmas Knitting plate? Socks for daughter #2. A hat for son #1. Mitts for my dear mamma. Mittens for daughter #2. and Dashing for son #1!
Not a long list by any means – it will be some fun daily knitting!
We got our tree last night also. We put it up in the living room and it needs to be decorated. But, I wanted the kitties to get over the “newness” of it before putting lights and ornaments on it! There was a GREAT deal of interest in it last evening – and I debated about sleeping on the sofa to keep an eye on any kitty lumberjack events! But, after a bit of time, they seemed to be bored with the entire process. The tree was still upright this morning and the branches have all “relaxed” quite nicely! I love the smell it brings to the house – and yes, as of this morning I can still smell!
Alright, I am off to begin the “weaving ends in marathon”!
Have a good day everyone!
