Sunny Sunday Before Christmas

It a very cold and breezy day, but it's a brilliant sun-shiney one. We've stayed in, the grandson is a might stuffy, which could be allergies, as he doesn't appear sick, but I am sore enough from yesterday's exertions to think it wise to keep ourselves indoors. My neighbor (did I mention they're really terrific people?) loaned us several Disney VCR tapes, and we've had a marathon of cartoon stories today, along with making paper snowflakes!

Last night, I finished off the mittens, and the DGS1 modeled them nicely, I thought:

I'm amazed that it only took 24 hours to make the two. I'll join BK and say I wish I could knit socks that fast.

I also realized that the DGS 3 doesn't have a Nana-Knit hat. I've made him one, but it was for a 4-month old's head. So I cast on last night for this:

And finished it while we watched the movies.

Throughout the weekend, we've seen very little of The Meezer (except after the grandson goes to bed, then she feels safe enough to venture out).

Today, I happened to sit down on my bed for a moment, and as I got up I noticed a speck of movement under the covers I'd tossed aside a bit ago when I got up:

Further inspection detailed the hiding place of the missing meeze...

I've replaced acrylic blankets I've used for years with two (smaller) all wool blankets that belonged to my mom. I've been very happy with the choice, but still have added the down comforter I inherited from her, too...The Meezer had burrowed under the comforter and wrapped between a roll of the blankets I'd tossed back making herself a very warm nest:

I even enjoy 'niffin' those occasional duck feathers, Mom, now please, put the covers down and don't give my hide-y-hole away?

By all means, Miss Meeze...

The mittens look great, and I love the matching hat! Your grandson looks very happy to be a model for you -- never a bad thing, to have a live model :) And I'm glad to see that the Meezer is keeping herself warm amongst all of that snow -- I hope you are, too :)

Wow - two finished objects in about as many days. Nicely done!

And I am so glad you didn't sit on the Meezer. She sure looks cozy!

Great picture of grandson, and the mittens look good, too. :-)

His thumbs-up pose inspired this mad thought that one could knit mittens for a garden enthusiast with green thumbs.

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.
