Groan! I don't know how I'll ever finish what I want to make for the dept. I've discovered another method of making the ruffly scarves, using a spool knitter (I know! Who'd a thunk it!), which Disco loves to use. I then offered her $2.00 for every scarf she could finish. So she went off and found her smaller spool knitter, and has been happily making I-cord for two days. I don't recall asking for I-cord. I'm not yet ready to throw in the towel, but I am stopping at the library on the way home...mixed messages, much?
Laws, look what I did! I won another blogger giveaway! Just two days ago I got a Harmony Guide to Edgings, from Lara Smoot (www.ravelry.com/designers/lara-smoot [love her name...]). And the same day, I read torirot's stitches (torirotsstitches.blogspot.com/)and found out that she drew my comment for a free pattern! I chose her Blomekrans Vest, which is just fabulous and looks like it'll be a ton of fun. So folks, I'm lucky -- you'd better follow this blog, the luck might rub off.
We have not put up a single holiday decoration yet, except for the Santa mobile that always hangs over the bookcase (too hard to get to, to take it down!), and a little shelf-sitter by the front door. But today I found the cutest idea for using old greeting cards for ornaments, and I think I'll have to put that to use.
Gotta run! Happy holidays!
