Tis the season

December. Lots of joy. Lots of celebration. Lots of things to do.

Today I'm home and I hope to get some cards addressed. This year I am determined to use up some leftovers I keep saving. Only that small box on the left with the snowy, woodsy scene is new.

Hopefully any recipient who receives the same card as last year will have as poor a memory as mine and not recall. It's the thought that counts, right?

There is some knitting to be done around here. There is a basic triangular shawl that is almost done and hasn't even made an appearance here yet. I'm puzzling over the edging just now.

And no sooner than I had mailed off the pair of zigzag socks, than I heard that a nephew would sure like a new pair of wool socks.

It's been over two years since I made him the first pair. Turns out he loves them. Well that is just the kind of thing that sends a knitter rushing to the LYS for yarn.

I came home with basic Regia. Hardwearing and washer/dryer safe. No way a college boy is going to bother with handwashing.

Cuff on sock one is complete and I can't tell you how much I'd rather be sitting and knitting the heel than addressing cards.

I know! Addressing cards is ugly... I'm lucky though, when we were addressing wedding invites and then thank-you cards earlier this year, I entered all of my addresses into a Word Document formatted to print out on label/sticker pages! So this year I will just bring up that document and make sure that I have all of the right addresses and print/stick/sign/mail :)

Oh, right. . . cards. Another thing for the December to-do list.

You have a very lucky nephew. Hand knit socks are wonderful! As for the Christmas cards, I'm thinking I might skip them this year. Just takes up too many evenings when I could be knitting. Selfish? hmmmm
