Christmas? Ahhhhhhhh!

All I want to do is get my Christmas List finished before December 25th arrives. With the added pressure of having a Mother who's birthday also falls on the big day, this is never an easy adventure. This year - I decided what I decide every year - Everyone is getting knitted gifts. However unlike years before, I've put this plan into motion, and have 6 dishcloths under my belt already.

5 dishcloths for my Mother, 5 for my Grandmother, fingerless gloves for Boyfriends Brother and his Girlfriend, a toque for my Dad and a couple of easy soap sweaters for last minute miscellaneous gift needs.
Also I've found a pattern for Candy Cane Cozy's which I think are adorable and would look cute attached to gifts, I have 2 finished so far.

I'm taking a sock knitting class at The Loop on Barrington Street in Halifax on November 28th - socks were a project I could never quite master so hopefully this will fix that. I'd love to make some woolly house socks for Boyfriend and myself.

Better Late than Never!

ok I'm back! Work was so hectic, and summer was amazing!
Long story short, we went to NYC, the garden kicked the bucket while we were gone (it was during the heatwave in August) I decided to go back to school part time and I have welcomed the return of my winter hobby - knitting.
Spring/Summer = Gardening
Fall/Winter = Knitting

Somewhere along the line I lost track of my diet... but am happy to say that I haven't gained any weight - just certainly haven't lost any.
So for now - I am off to make some supper for me and my love - then watching a flick before bed.

Stay Tuned....
