Yesterday I was off with Anne, who is recuperating from a cold. We did lots of relaxing, and while she napped, I knit. Christmas is merely 2 months away, did you know that?! I have a number of gifts completed, but still a significant way to go. I finished 2 things over the weekend. A hat for my mother-in-law, and my secret Santa gift, which is FABULOUS. I can't say anymore because it's, you know, secret. But I love it. :) Everything has to be hand washed and blocked, but aside from that they are DONE. And I also finished Anne's cardigan:
I *love* the way it turned out. And the buttons?
Couldn't you just die? I'm thrilled with this. Too bad it will be spit up on to an inch of its life very shortly, but I know it'll be loved, and what more can a hand knit ask for?
So last night I embarked upon 2 gifts, one for each of my sisters, which are also secret. :) But so far so good. One of them is actually part of a "Knitalong" on Ravelry. Isn't that fun? It's an online group that reports its progress and helps each other as everyone works on the same project. I just love this idea.
Thus, this morning I woke up perky, marred only by the mysterious leaking of *4 ozs of milk* in the car on the way to daycare. I'm very upset about this, but there's not much I can do about it.
