I wish I could say that I've spent nearly every spare moment of my vacation knitting (working on the few projects that are currently on my needles. Part of my vacation was spent sick in bed, unfortunately! My mom successfully doctored me back to health and after a few days under her care, I felt halfway human. But I still didn't do much knitting, which means that I still need to finish 3.5 dishcloths for Momma's annual Christmas gift. Also have to finish Eric's second sock (I was going great guns on it but messed up a cable and couldn't fix it so I had to rip and re-knit), and also need to finish my laceweight Clapotis. I'm prioritizing those projects in that exact order and would love to finish all of them by the end of January, so that I can start my "Incredible Custom-Fit Raglan Sweater" for my "Ravelympics 2010" project (careful, that's a Ravelry link!).
So in other news, I will share what "Santa" brought me for Christmas ... gee I must have been very good this year! My parents bought me some cute stuff, including a "Porn for Women" wall calendar, a neat mug that I can use for sipping my morning tea, and a couple of charms for my Pandora bracelet! I got some Christmas money from other family members too, and my honey gave me an Amazon.com gift card. So what did I buy? Knitting stuff of course! I got 4 of Cat Bordhi's books:
- Personal Footprints for Insouciant Sock Knitters: Book Two in the New Pathways for Sock Knitters Series
- New Pathways for Sock Knitters: Book One
- A Second Treasury of Magical Knitting
- A Treasury of Magical Knitting
That's all for now, dears. Methinks it's finally time to cozy up in bed and head off to dreamland. Hope your New Year is productive, fun and full of knitting. May your yarn never tangle, and may your dye lots always match!
Until next time,
