More CrazinessSome good stuff - we got our Christmas tree, it's snowing today, and we've re-discovered the joy of a down comforter and hot water bottles. Plus, I finally cleared the last hurdles to my bar admission and will be taking an oath next week to finally become an official lawyer!
Some bad stuff - Monday was another extra-long day at work (although compared with some of my co-workers, it wasn't bad at all), and I sometimes struggle with keeping a positive attitude. I'm still hoping that my plans for a holiday vacation will work out, because I really need some breathing room to hopefully be able to start the new year with a better attitude!
Some scary stuff - S and I put an offer on a house!! We got the counter-offer yesterday, but we're sticking with our original offer... we'll see what they say today or tomorrow. If they accept, we'd settle before Christmas, and if they don't, we continue looking.
Oh, right - and knitting!
A few weeks ago, I finished knitting a simple feather-and-fan scarf out of the yummiest handspun EVER. I have not managed to take a picture or block it however, because this is what happens whenever I take it out of the bag:
And this is what happens whenever I put something wooly on the blocking board:
So instead, how about a picture of some socks? They're grey, and boring, but I'm wearing handknit socks every day (if I can), so having some plain, conservative socks is not a bad idea.
And my almost-last almost-finished christmas knitting - a simple hat/mitten set for my Grandma.
