We have had a very low key New Year’s holiday weekend here in Middle Earth. The family is sick and I’m am recovered. I did manage to go to church on Sunday (it was so nice to be with people again) and then to the office to get in a couple of hours of work. I went home and caught up on the laundry (I’m actually finishing up today). The wreath is off the front door and the lights are off. Now, we hunker down for winter. It finally showed up yesterday. This a.m. when the pup and I went out for our walk, it was bloody windy and cold. I’m still in wuss-mode, so it was really miserable. I’ll be fine if it sticks around, but it takes some getting used to. We’ll just see what happens. This has been a strange weather season. Too warm. I think that’s why the flu is getting around so splendidly. Everyone is out and about.
This morning while I was sitting at my computer, this was what I was greeted by…………………
I have been knitting and am getting close on one SIL sock for Christmas. I suffer so much over what to knit people that I just don’t get it done, so I’m not gonna do it. Not unless the spirit hits me. Besides, I’m so darned slow. Here’s the sock as it is this morning.
Also, I got knitting for Christmas. I wanted to share it with you because both are beautiful and knit with love which makes them powerful stuff. These are the socks my BSIL knit for me. They are so very soft!!!
Here are the mittens Peanut knit for me. It took her a year or so to finish the second one, but I held onto the first one so that I had at least the one. Thankfully, she is very tolerant of her bizarre aunt. I love them. They are warm and very soft and very dressy.
