Christmas Eve

I have made it. The intentional Christmas knitting off the needles well before tonight, the unintentionals, 1 left to go, but not a real rush to have it done until this weekend. Presents are all wrapped and ready to be sorted. Baking is done.(8 dozen cookies distributed) i really intended more but the urge has gone for tonight.

I am having a knitting crash tonight. I really want to work on my Cozy or the socks. Lots of gorgeous yarn waiting to be cast on. But the urge isn't there. hopefully after a break tomorrow i will be back in the mood. The pressure of even planned holiday knitting is still a lot of pressure. Is it right, did it block out, will anyone notice that weird looking stitch but me or should I rip out the entire thing??? (Actually did that 3 times each on two of the projects...) Will they like it. New to the holiday knit gift giving as a primary gift, really nervous too. ahh well....

Off to put the gifts under the tree, make sure Santa gets his chocolate chip cookies and milk and be forgiven because I forgot the carrots for the reindeer. Think they would like chocolate chip or snickerdoodles instead????

To all my friends out there IRL and in blogging land, Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, a inspirational Solstice, had a joyful Diwali, Happy Hannukah, joyous Kwanza(running out of adverbs here) hope you had/have a wonderful day!!!

Bet you had a fun holiday with Joey. Those little ones are such a joy. I got to be with my grand-children in Virginia. What a hoot! Took them to shop for their parents, and Ben told me that they always wanted The Simpsons movie! I didn't fall for that one . . . he settled for Shrek Third, since they have the other two, and they watch lots of movies as a family. Hope you have a wonderful New Year . . . maybe we should start thinking about knitting those last minute items for NEXT Christmas, and we'll be ahead of the game!

Where are you? *sniffle* I hope that you are just working hard and playing hard and not having a lot of time to sit in front of a computer screen, like me. hehe

I finially got the sock yarn (Union Center Knits Whatnot Sport) you sent me over a year ago in the Knit 1 Tea 2 swap knit up. Who knows why I waited so long, it was wonderful to work with and I love the colors!
Thanks again for such a wonderful gift!
