happy birthday to cristina!


this entry is brought to you by Max. He’s a tough editor, but has no respect for capitalization (he’s laying on my arm so I can’t reach the right shift key).

Here’s the knitting status:

Friday Max and I bonded ALL DAY LONG, without a break (i.e., no nap was taken). He finally fell asleep at 8:30pm, and by that time I was ready for bed too.

Saturday evening we went out to dinner for my sister-in-law’s birthday. I can’t believe she’s  only 28.

Sunday I had many household responsibilities to address (like grocery shopping), plus that whole pesky post-grocery-shopping-feed-the-family thing. I fed them pizza, but I still had to go get it, and do the dishes afterwards.

In other words, the second sock is just barely further along than it was last time.

I’ve also made a decision. I’m sick of knitting socks. I cannot, canNOT knit another whole pair. If someone would be willing to take a single sock, I might be able to do it. But that just doesn’t sound like a very good Christmas present. So instead, I’ve decided to do mittens. I know, aren’t really that much different than socks. But I’ve been waiting for months to make these…

These aren’t mine. These were knit by Melissa, and she said I could borrow her photos. Aren’t they lovely?  If you look really closely, you can see the bird on the thumbs. I’m hoping to finish the second Fascine Braid sock by Tuesday so I can get going on these. I’m even looking forward to doing the thumbs. Wish me luck!
