I had an awesomely relaxing day yesterday where I did very little. I sat on the deck with a bowl of cherries and an iPod full of knitting podcasts. By midday it had clouded over a bit, so it wasn't even in direct sun. Here's my great little spot---I don't know why, but my first thought upon awakening this morning was of Christmas. Oddly enough, it was about Christmas knitting.
I was not going to do any Christmas knitting this year, because it always ends up being a huge stressful panic in December.
Unfortunately, I think I'll be putting myself through the Christmas knitting torture again this year, because there are a few gifts that I would really like to knit. I'm going to attempt to be well prepared and start on my Christmas knitting really early.
No laughing, but I'd also really like to knit Redd a sweater. Hey, he gets cold.
Anyhoo... I made a pair of Saartje's Booties on Friday night after work. They turned out super cute, but I've yet to find buttons that are suitable.
I figure that since every time I turn around another person I know is expecting, it would be wise to have a pair of booties on hand.
