Brrrr. . . . Baby it’s cold outside!

Igloo sweater today man. Gotta keep warm. Each chick has knit one of these babies and let me tell you they are wonderful in this frigid weather!

Christmas knitting! Oy, I don’t know how it happened but I think I am behind. I am currently whittling away on a cabled sock for my sister. I turned the heel last night, and I still have one sock to go. However, I have a really, really bad feeling about this sock. Two stitches have mysteriously disappeared. I don’t know where they went. I have searched and searched for dropped stitches but I can’t find any. I thought maybe the dropped stitched were hiding in the cable. Nope . . . where did these two stinking stitches go? How on earth did I manage to lose them? So I knit on. Hopefully the Bad Knitting Fairy does not come up from behind and smack me one. Only the socks have me worried. I have been laying in stores of slippers, scarves, dish cloths, etc for non knitters on my gift list.

The Christmas Knitting means I had to put down and stop knitting on my EZ baby surprise sweater. ASJ and I will teaching this class with a friend who is a knitting master (who we will lean on heavily). So I figured I had better whip one out quickly before the class starts in January. So I will have to knit fast post-Christmas to get it done. Maybe I can finish it in a weekend.

If you check the right hand side of the blog you will see we have determined we are going eastward to Green Bay for our knitting trip in February. If you know of any great yarn shops or restaurants along the way or in Green Bay let us know so we can plan accordingly!

Wrap yourself in wool and stay warm!

I have not knit a single Chrismas gift this year. What a bad knitter I am.
