The sweetest gift

I came home from a tiring Christmas spent in Alabama with the in-laws to a package from my secret pal. I'm not able to post pictures from my camera on this computer, but inside was the cutest snowman mug, chocolates, cocoa and tea. I see some relaxing afternoons with a hot mug of something yummy in my future for the rest of my time off of work. The thing in my box that made me jump up and down was the Knit 2 Together book by Tracey Ullman and Mel Clark. I've been wanting this book ever since I hear Tracey talking about it on NPR. It is truly brilliant! Thank you, Secret Pal!

No cheer here.

This weekend it was over 70 degrees in Middle TN. How am I supposed to feel the Christmas Spirit when I break a sweat just getting groceries in from the car? Its made me too cranky to want to knit much. Here's hoping for a frosty January!

Where have I been?

It has been just ages since I posted. Other than getting sick upon returning from Thanksgiving, I've mostly just been lazy. I've been working on the most boring project, 16.5 inches of st st, the start of a plain v-neck sweater for Hubba Bubba. The best thing by far that has happened to me lately is the loverly package I got in the mail from my Secret Pal... thanks for the cute patterns, the ornaments and good smelling spray, but especially the yarn.... I can start the knee socks I've been ranting about. The sweater is too big and bulky to carry around, so I am officially swatching for the socks. Yeah!
