Making Christmas Gifts Isn't The Same As Wanting to Listen to Christmas Music Too Early in the Season...

I'm sneaking in a photo here of a gift I'm making...
Okay, you can't tell what it is (and many of you are aghast to see the Fun Fur, I know...)

That's the best you'll get, till after it's gifted. I'll show you the finished product, I promise. And I'm not crazy, either. (Promise) Even if you think I might be.

No. It's not another Huggable Hedgehog (tho' that would be a pretty combination for one!) The multicolored yarn is yet another of my Art Walk Sock Yarn club selections (meaning it's superwash, so won't felt into a Hedgehog), colorway Phenomina.

I'll eventually get stuff up on Ravelry, but today has been a quiet day - I woke with a migraine in the middle of the night, last night, and have stayed in the dark almost all day. Ventured out long enough to gather a bit to eat (this time, the stomach wasn't involved - thank you, migraine gods!) and a bit of caffeine to help get rid of it, but other than putting out the trash and recycling (and now this post!), it's been a lost day. The Meezer enjoyed spending the day under the covers with me, tho'.

I don't think you can listen to Christmas music too early if it is the right kind. I have a huge collection, and a lot of it is stuff you never hear on the radio so can't get sick of it. I haven't started yet because it's too warm out, but I will never get to hear everything before Christmas if I don't start soon.

I love the yarn combination - trying to figure all what it could be. Fun fur does have its place! I hope you're feeling better today...

Sorry about the migraine, but at least it spared your stomach this time. As for Christmas music: some is good all year long. "Good King Wenceslaus," for example - a lovely melody (and ops for harmonies), and lyrics that never go out of season.

Fun fur? Uh oh.

'tis an intriguing pile of yarn! You put my spruce green wool ease mittens to shame...but then, I'm knitting for my father-in-law.

Oh, I'm sorry to hear about the migraine! That's not a fun way to spend the day, even if it does make the Meezer happy. But that sock yarn is absolutely gorgeous, and I can't wait to see what you make with everything in that picture :)

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.
