Foliage and a little bit of this and a little bit of that...


I finished Foliage for a friend for the upcoming holidays - it's hard to mkae out the detials on my daughter's little noggin, but I think it will be perfect for my girlfriend. Nice and cozy in Classic Elite Waterlily yarn. What a quick and simple knit.

I Christmas shopped today and have determined holiday shopping is like Chinese food for me - the more I eat, the more I have left on my plate somehow...I shop, yet my list never seems to get shorter - I shop in true ADD form, flit from this to that and nothing on my list gets check off. I am sure that I making progress but I need to wrap and check off my list so I can feel some accomplishment.

I was, however, pretty excited to get one silly thing for my daughter. Anyone have a daughter who loves Hannah Montana? Well, Disney is releasing a Hannah 3-d movie for one week in February and you can pre-order your tickets - what a fun mommy-daughter day, and an event I can gift for the holidays from just me. (and it's waaaay cheaper than the thousands of dollars parents are paying for live concert tickets - holy crap) I also picked up the Hannah CD, got some Hannah stickers and a gift bag. I think young girls are into HM... I think there is something special about this little girl, she is a positive role model for now - Miley Cyrus - even Oprah said so!

Beautiful hat! Want to come and knit some for me to give? Hee hee!
It is hard to find a good role model for young girls....Miley seems to be on target, as you say, FOR NOW! Let's hope she'll stay that way!

Isn't 'Waterlily' such a great yarn? Also, my 10 y.o. daughter is in to HM as well. I have to say that I like her too and am somewhat embarrassed to find myself enjoying her show!;)

Great hat! HM is one of the shows my kids watch that I can actually tolerate. She's a cutie.

Foliage is gorgeous. :) Hannah is popular around here, as well. I saw a Billy Ray Cyrus interview the other day & love his parenting philosophy -- I think Miley has a decent chance. Enjoy the movie!
