I’m back but probably not for long. The usual xmas craziness has hit me full force and it won’t be letting up anytime soon so posting to my blog will be spotty at best….
I feel like I have my own 12 days of Christmas going:
5 days ago our front gate stopped working.
4 days ago our cat who taught herself how to use the dog door brought a dead mouse into the house.
3 days ago our cat brought in a live mouse.
2 days ago a tire blew out on my car as I was driving home from work (doing 60 mph).
Yesterday our furnace decided our house didn’t need heat even though the high for the day was only going to be 39 degrees.
I’m hoping today is just a partridge in a pear tree……
That said, I’ve been knitting every waking moment that I’m not taking care of crises or feeling guilty about the things I’m not doing (baking cookies, decorating the house, washing clothes….).
Here are pictures of all the Fake Isle hats I’ve completed:
This is an extremely addictive pattern (who am I kidding? We all know that I tend to fall in love with one pattern and then make it over and over and over again….) and I can’t wait to make some more. Xmas knitting dictates that I make some mittens and wristwarmers and school beanies so I’ll save the pleasure of the fake isle for the long car ride down to CA next month.
Hope everyone is enjoying a lovely holiday season!
I shall return!
