Hee hee! I'm just including this picture to remind you all (and myself, for that matter), of lovely Delores. Who has been sadly neglected. As have pretty much all of my WIP's, due in large part to STEALTH CHRISTMAS knitting. Santa Claws doesn't knit, so it's up to me to fill these Christmas knit wishes.
So, pretend you haven't seen Delores before! Ooooo! Ahhhh!
And thanks Jamieson's! Although it doesn't bring back my Hearts Tunic, your response does go a long way in restoring my confidence in your lovely yarns.
There's very little in the way of knitting to show you. This time of year - what can I say. It's all about the gifties.
Speaking of which!
Look what I got from Tess, Jetsam, and Garden Kitty's mom Bridget!
And for the Little Dudes too! Some toys for them (which have since been scattered to all four corners), some gluten free cookies (the gingerbread cookie? Oh. Wow.), and a SIGNED copy of "Knit So Fine"! I love this book, and have since it first came out. It features designs using thin yarns (my favourites). There are quite a few I'd like to try, including a hat, and the cover design. There's also a Kimono Top, and a vest using sock yarn. And lots of other stuff - go have a peek! Thanks Bridget! And thanks to the lovely authors of the book - Lisa R. Myers, Laura Grutzeck and Carol Sulcoski - for signing the book for me.
"I'm confused. Can I ask you something?"
"Mom's name is Brigitte, right?"
"Then, how is it that Tess and Jetsam and Garden Kitty's mom is ALSO named Bridget? How can there be 2 moms named Brigitte? See my point? It's weird."
"Dude. There can be 2 mom's with the same name. It's just that the spelling is different."
"The spelling is different? Ohhhh. OK. Well, I guess so then. Atticus?"
"So, could there be 2 Atticus' too?"
"Whoa. Let's not get ahead of ourselves!"
Really must booby trap computer while I'm at work. Seems someone is getting too familiar with surfing the Internet.
Anyway! Hey look! Surprise! Pardon the bad office lighting and slightly constipated look. We had just rolled back into the office after our 2.5 hour group lunch. Heh. But look! Yes, that's right. I cut A LOT of hair off, and boy does it ever feel LIGHTER. I never realized I had so much hair. But, it was a long time in coming, and I'm very pleased with the results.
Yay me! (Nice sweater Brigitte. Why, thank you. :D )
"I'm here for no other reason than to show you all how handsome I am. Despite the crappy lighting. That is all."
