1. Thank you all for the lovely comments on my Burberry cowl. It was a fantastic project and I've already knit two more! And now I've discovered a new pattern.
I'm tossing out all my other knitting projects and plan to knit Yule mitts for everyone. Look at those awesome Christmas tree lights draped across them.... Awesome Christmas lights that will magically look like simple blips of color in January. I hope.
2. It snowed! Snow in December! Measurable snow in December is rather unheard of here in Virginia.
I added a white snow stripe to my weather cowl and went for a walk.
I didn't realize why my husband was laughing so hard at me when I returned until I looked at my poor attempt at a selfie. I look like an abominable snow
3. I return to full time work tomorrow through New Year's and I'm in a bit of a panic. We've been doing some remodeling and the house is a complete disaster zone. Parts of the disaster area have been decorated, parts have been left alone with their light (some places not so light) coating of sawdust.
The "must knit or die" gifts have been finished and now I'm left with the "really, really want to knit" gifts. Oh, and those eight pair of Yule mitts!
The baking... Well, I did make a list of what needs to be baked and by when. I passed the list to my daughter with a hug and good luck wishes. Thank God for daughters who like to bake.
And now, I'm going to go do some relaxing deep breathing exercises, knit a few rows and go to work. I'll be back in January.
