Well, the Christmas weekend is just about to come to an end, and, let me tell you, it was a busy one. Having to work all weekend really messed things up. I certainly did not get enough sleep, but what are you going to do, right? So, here are a few pictures from my Christmas-time happenings. This first picture is one of me (on the left), my to brothers, Mike and Matt, and my sister, Melissa. I was trying to have a nice picture taken of the four of us, but you know, those boys, they always have to ruin it (I made my mom take another one, where my brothers weren't looking like morons). Anyway, Christmas Eve involved opening some presents from above siblings, which included some gift cards and this....
That's right, my friends, it's Socks That Rock yarn!! Oh yes, I was very very happy. That's one skein of Scottish Highlands and one of Chapman Springs. Both so much better up close and in person than the pictures on the internet. I just happened to have the ball winder in the car, so my sister and I wound one up. So, now it's all ready to go when I finish the Monkey socks (which I made good progress on this weekend!). Today, when we did the rest of the gift opening, I received more knitting goodness: Knitting Rules! and Yarn Harlot: The Secret Life of A Knitter by the Yarn Harlot. I also got Socks Socks Socks. All very good purchases. So this was a very Knitty Christmas. Most excellent!
Finally, here is my favorite picture that I took this weekend. It is a picture of my sixteen year old cat, Buster (he lives at my parents house). My mom has this village set up on a table in the living room, and Buster insists on sleeping in it. We call him the village cat. Because he is so old, he pretty much sleeps all the time, and this is where you have been able to find him for the past month. What a nice cat.
Anyway, that was my Christmas, it was busy, crazy even, but in the end, very good. Now, it is time to look forward to next weekend, when I have five days off, in a row, from work. That's a lot of time to knit!
