Time Flies! And a mystery sock spoiler!
Wow - time just seems to fly. Did you know that we only have 50-some shopping days until Christmas? That became cold reality to me when I was checking out the Halloween goodies at Target to find Christmas stuff an aisle away...so I thought what the heck, I bought some wrapping paper to prepare. I tend to be an early shopper, I have some things squirreled away already - with my biggest fear being I will not remember where they are on Christmas eve. With my handy new ITouch "List" application - I should be good to go. Of course, there's an app for that!
Earnest is tired just thinking about all of that shopping...
With the holiday shopping, comes the holiday knitting. I really enjoy seeing what people are working on. I have a itsy bitsy short list to knit for this year. I tend to be very selective because 1. I knit for myself and 2. people don't always understand the time cost - time is so limited with all of the preparations. (including a baby shower for my sister squeezed in there:) My mom requested socks - of course, the most time comprehensive short of a sweater, but I am kind of stoked about it. So in honor of my 500th post I am planning a contest for you guys to help me decide on a pattern - more on that in the next (500th!!) post - please put your thinking caps on for me knitters! :)
Lastly, I wanted to share my newly finished Mystery Knit-a-Long socks. Omg, I just love this yarn, this colorway, this pattern and my new shiny shoes. They are so shiny - can you see my reflection in them?
Yarntini Superwash Merino in Honeytini + Shoes Marcelle by Dansko = true love.
one last bit of news - check out this blog - these woman have been doing the most awesome virtual quilting bee. I am jealous, terribly, of the cool stuff they have created. Well, now it seems their blog will be parlayed into a book - so we can all join up! To celebrate they are giving away some gorgeous fabric - check in out!
