I had all these hopes of posting every day, and what happened? What always happens? Life gets in the way.
In this case, holiday knitting. My list was a little shorter this year, or at least it started out that way. I ended up with a quite a few items made, but most of them small things. My favorite knitted item was Laura’s gift this year, which were Jack Sparrow’s Favorite Socks, made in Wollmeise Rittersporn & Digitessa. I didn’t get super great photos of them, but here’s one:
Laura & Michael exchanged gifts, and oh how well they know each other. Laura knitted Michael’s vodka a scarf & hat (to match the one I made him for xmas), and Michael bought some Crystal Head vodka, removed the vodka, and filled it with Patron Silver, then dressed it up as a pirate. I maintain that were I to die in a horrible accident, they’d end up together in the end.
I also spent some time with my family, which is a rare thing, trust me, and relented into having a photo taken of my with my thin, lovely sister, Nicki.
Also, I now have proof that my son & one of my very closest friends own the same pajamas. Review:

And my dear friend Jackie:
Lots of stuff has been going on, and hopefully I won’t be a slacker and I’ll actually post about it. In the meantime, check out my swatch for the Argyle Vest I’m going to cast on for tomorrow!
