Bah Humbug, Part II

The tree has fallen for the THIRD time. I quit!

Bah Hambug!

The Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come is peering down his nasty nose at me. This is THE most unprepared I have ever been for a holiday. I entered the weekend confident that nothing could prevent me from finishing up. Bah!

The Christmas Ghost decided that TWO snowstorms, one kid with pneumonia, another kid on her second snow day, and a third in from NYC who apparently has turned into a vampire and a slovenly one at that, was just the right way to knock me off center.

I was able to do some effective stash busting over the weekend. Two skeins of Noro turned into two Turn a Square hats. A bit of red wool left over from the Christmas stockings I just finsished became a Mountain Colors Pill Box Hat. Both patterns were quick knits. My gauge was off, so I was forced to do a bit of math as I did not want to down size the needles. Now the question: who is knitting worthy? Who will not turn up their noses at hand crafted with love warmth? We shall see...

Right now, I have to figure out how to wrap gifts with too many children in the house!

A Quickie

I just added a two more to the bookshelf: The Vanishing Act of Esme Lennox and Away. Check them out; they are both well worth the time!
