Baby, it’s cold outside!

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!

  1. Stay warm and cozy under the blankets and have a good day of knitting. Hope the cold leaves quickly! Love your holiday decorations and am looking forward to seeing the tam.

  2. I swear by taking Airborne as soon as you feel those little niggly feelings that indicate you may be catching a cold. I did it the other day – took a dose every four hours – went to bed early and the next morning I was fine. And you know I work in the high school with all KINDS of germs floating around! Taking it once the cold is full-blown seems to help it not get so bad, but I was still down and out when I did it that way. Hope you’re feeling better soon!
