Got Nothin'

Another yucky day... but I'm hoping tomorrow will be better...

I promised you photos of some of the Christmas knitting as soon as I could get them from my Big Sis, and then when they got here, I promptly forgot to do it!

So...these nutty looking folks are some of my family:

And there are three hats I made - the green one now belongs to my Big Sis, as BIL said he really doesn't care for stocking caps - do you think perhaps he's worried about "hat head?" (Do men worry about such things?) Anyway, she's tickled to have the hat!

And here are Big Sis's Fleece Artist Socks...Mind you, they are the same size. You can see she tried them on over black tights. And since her feet hurt her a lot, it was hard to try to pull them on evenly without causing her pain. (Which isn't the way to spend Christmas - imagine, hurting your Big Sis when you thought you were making her something to feel better?)

Anyway, I think she likes them.

I've gotten some yarn (my Art Walk Sock Yarn Club for January came and it's lovely, but I can't spoil the photos will wait a day or so...) and Rowan Plaid Collection, tho' I have no idea what I'll make - I can't wear these heavy sweaters as much as I love them!

I did go to work today, and it was a productive day...there's a lot to be said for that when your head is full of cotton-wool...!

They look great! YES, men worry about "hat head". When my hubby was going to Quebec in December 06 for a business trip, he REFUSED to let me make him a hat (but he deigned to allow me to make him a scarf).

A rare comment from Big Sis here !!
I wore my socks to bed last night (the ones I usually wear have hit the waste basket !!!) And they were so super !! I wondered if they would be so loose that they would work themselves OFF my feet -DIDN"T HAPPEN !! Or if they would be a bit tight so that my ankles would swell as they have done recently almost anytime -- DIDN"T HAPPEN either !!
Thanks, Little Sis -- I LOVE MY SOCKS !!!

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
