at least i'm knitting


so, for all that talk about getting it together around here and getting my christmas gift making on, i haven't gotten a whole lot done. i have been sick for the past week and have had no motivation. i haven't even glanced in the direction of the sewing machine. that is pretty bad. i have managed to do some knitting. (because that takes little effort since you just sit in one spot and don't move very much.) the above is a cowl i am making for myself. i found the pattern through ravelry (i love this site!) which took me here.

and i am still working on my grandpa's hat. yes, I am knitting it on straight needles because those dpns scare me to bits! i am using the same yarn i used for larkin's scarf last year. i really love this yarn. it knits up so soft!
this afternoon holds some cookie baking for me. my homeschool support group is having a cookie swap tonight. i wonder which cookies will come home with me...

hope you feel better soon.
me and the kids are sick too
knitting is a good way to pass the time

a cookie swap sounds awesome= great way to get a good variety
last year i made tons and i just can't muster the energy this year although i did make some last night

i would like to know why everyone's knitting looks so great and mine is just plain jane crappy...grrr...obviously this is my negative way of saying that i LOVE what you are making. i think i'm picking the wrong yarn/needles and i'm too afraid to venture beyond knit stitch after trying that totally impossible lace scarf thing...

ok, i'll stop rambling on your blog. miss you. xo.

do not fear the dpns - they are your friends and will make our life a nicer place. Honestly! have just friended you on ravelry - hope that's ok
