Like The Queen
Whatever happens to strike my fancy, but surely some sort of fiber content.


With four months to do a sweater you've got plenty of time to swatch and plan and dream to make it as perfect as he deserves!!!

Take care of yourself - no getting sick and eating up your Thanksgiving with feeling bad!

A sweater for your LD, eh? In 4 weeks? Nah! I've been working on the LoTech Sweat (ChicKnits) for my LD since September. I applaud your sticking with your decision about knitted Xmas gifts...take your time and enjoy the holidays. And Happy Thanksgiving (early)!

"Whip wielding warden..." Can I borrow that line? And post it on my mirror?

Wise wise wise, Miss Amie. I will take that advice and not ruin the rest of 2006 with a miserable frenzy of knitting. I haven’t any idea why I would want to turn one of my favorite pass times into ego busting obligation. Must be the .... latent type A in me. I am sure we all have a bit of a whip wielding warden buried deep behind our pleasure zone who can make guilt burgeon through the slightest crack in our self esteem. Anyway - I’ve patched up that fissure and am prepared to have a Merry Christmas Season.

And I dug out the two camo sock cuffs plus heel flaps and started knitting on them. They’d been on stitch holders for 2 years. How nice I get to start with the oppressive K2P2 rib already finished. That is appropriate holiday knitting.

Sorry I don’t have NBP pictures yet but I stayed home yesterday and sorted through the winter clothes and summer clothes. I’d been putting it off because the extra 10 lbs I’ve put on since 2003 has made the prettiest of my winter wardrobe too tight. I knew it, but I didn't want to actually have to feel the proof of it. But I had to decide what went into my tiny closet and what did not. And what needed to be cleaned, what needed mending, etc. Which meant I had to try everything on and sort it into piles. Ditto for the summer stuff. I always have some things to go to Goodwill every season. Not a lot, but some. And it always feels good to get that stuff out of the house.

There will be a picture tomorrow, though. As for today - I will loll, thank you. I am feeling a little achy today - as if I were fighting off Holiday Germs. If I do anything more interesting than sorting through piles of papers stacked about the place - it is likely to be watching old movies - and knitting on Christmas socks.
