After the past rotten few days we've had, Delaney came home from school yesterday very excited and happy. "I have a gift for you and you can't look at it!!! I have to put it under our tree." She ran into the house and did so before I could see (not that I wanted to, why spoil the surprise). I tried to convince her that I should open it on Christmas but she insisted that I open it immediately. Below are photos. My gift is a calender, artwork provided by Delaney. Beautiful and heart-warming. Sweet girl.
Quiet night last night. Had a long chat with Mo. Walked the dog around 10. In bed and lights out before 11. I even fit in some reading time but I can't say I worked on either knitting project at all. Right now I'm focusing again on Tinna's scarf. It's been cold this week and she keeps asking me for it so I'm trying to bang it out quickly. Then back to my Pel. Then a pair of socks. I just received my order from KnitPicks - sock sampler in cool colours (enough yarn for *6* pairs of socks!) and a book called "Getting Started: Knitting Socks"...so, I've made the commitment to doing socks next. I'm terrified but with the help and emotional support of my knitting partners around here and online friends, I think I'll manage to get through it!
In the news, JK Rowling was named a runner-up in Time's "Person of the Year 2007". You can read the article about her here.
