End of 2003I hope everyone had a great holiday- I certainly did! First, Mom and I figured out the most efficient way to pack all 2000 daily calories into one bite- FUDGE:
SO good, but so very very dangerous.
Also, Mums and Dads got their new sweaters, and were very pleased:
So that was fun... I also gave my other knitted presents- the mittens and a couple of eros scarves, and everyone seemed happy.
I, meanwhile, spent the majority of my knitting time this holiday working on the pullover ribbie- I have the front and back and am almost done with the first sleeve:
Cricket is, as usual, helping me by pouncing on any potentially dangerous yarn tails. I still haven't quite decided what to do about the neck for this guy, but I'm now leaning towards a basic crew neck... I guess at some point I'm going to have to make a decision! :)
I also got a few balls of wonderfully fuzzy yarn from a dear friend in CA... I'm not sure what I'll make with it yet... it screams "lacy scarf," but it is partly wool, so I wouldn't be able to wear it- at least not against my skin. So I think I'll let the yarn "percolate" for a bit, and see what my brain comes up with! Either that, or Cricket will finally manage to get at it, and the yarn will become an extremely extravagent kitty toy.
Speaking of kitties, she's pretty much perfected the art of "couch-potato"... what a snuggle-bunny!
