Okay, so we are starting out with pretty snow pictures for you! I love the lights at night. I make Fireman drive me around the curvy dark country roads and we find amazing lights ! This makes me very happy even if I don’t have a waffle cone of low fat ice cream in my hand…….
I have not seen Santa in a long time. I got to laugh with him on Saturday. I needed to tell him that aside from a new alarm clock, I want yarn of course. I told him one of those elves has just got to wind it for me. I spent 2 hours last night cussing and trying to untangle a gorgeous hank of alpaca. It just is so dreamy and fuzzy that it winds up on itself. Struggle Struggle Struggle. How Santa, can I cast on, if I can’t wrangle the yarn? Who’s with me here?
I love this sweater. I would not love making it. Karen….I think it has your name on it. Karen is my most devoted lurker, that I know about. Karen is my buddy from my old neighborhood. She can knit anything . Really. She and Al, they both can. Al’s too busy finishing Grad school, but she will knit again. I know it.
Frogged it. I really did. My mind cannot do 300 stitch rows right now. Not fair to even try. I’m doing better each day I think with Grief and memories. I am happy for the Holidays and my kiddos coming in! Sometimes though, some little thing will set me off into a teary, sniffy, quiet little spot. Its just normal grief.
What else should I tell you about? Oh I have a big big surprise for Fireman for our anniversary next week. Sometimes he reads the blog, so I won’t mention it yet. But it is not: a dog, a cat, a trip to Hawaii, a plow for the driveway, a truck, jewelry, or a boat.
Okay, Off to cast on the new project. It is a skinny shawl with 3 different yarns. They better not tangle!!! I miss knitting!!
