And it feels soooooo good. I may never knit with another sock yarn again.
Oh, that? Um...elves wound it.
Last night the women's ministry had another fellowship night, and this one was cookie decorating. Behold, the fruits of my labor:
Sandy of Sandyland Cookies taught it, and it was fun, although I think the SO would have gotten more out of it than I did. He's a baker and famous for his cookies.
I allocated today for knitting and rest. I was thwarted in the resting, unfortunately - I had bad dreams and finally just decided to get up rather than continue to flee tidal waves and killer whales (I don't know what my subconscious has against orcas. When I'm awake I think they're beautiful and powerful and generally awesome - but in my sleep they eat people. Go figure.)
That just left more time for knitting. A whole day of Christmas knitting progress! Right?
Yeah...not so much. Grumperina came out with a new hat pattern. I knit her Odessa pattern back in April for the sister of one of my church ladies who was undergoing chemo for some fairly serious cancer. She did very well in the treatment, and her cancer was in remission for several months. but this week she had to go to the hospital and it looks like she's going to have to go back into treatment, so...
It's a quick knit. It won't throw me too far off schedule, and even if it does - they'll understand.
