That I would actually knit up a slew of small gifts for the other coders. There just was not enough time. But hey! I did get some little presents knitted for the Plaid Patrol. DiscoDame got a warm lace headband in bulky yarn, from the Blueleaf Headband pattern. And the Plaidman got an Ear Warmer for Baseball Caps (Kraemer Yarns, free pattern). Observe:
Now you're ready to see what I got for Christmas:
But back to my Christmas presents! I got jewelry, both dressy & cute stuff. Disco gave me some specifically "Christmassy" pieces, which she knows I collect:
The necklace is from Disco, and earrings are from Plaidman. As you can see, nothing terribly expensive here, but nice to add to the wardrobe. I think I need to get Plaidman to hang another necklace holder on the wall, for the shorter necklaces -- they're getting rather crowded in the jewelry box. The only ones that need to stay in there are the ones on silver chains; I keep a dessicant in there to combat tarnish.
Disco has a few days off, she did work thru the 26th so she's eligible for the completion bonus. She's going to go in to work on Wednesday, which would be her next scheduled work day if she's still employed. Now, she was hired as a seasonal worker, and they did say the 26th was the end of the season, so I don't know that they'll actually let her report to work! But hey, if they do it's just gravy.
