…and I’m sorry that I sounded so negative in the last post – sometimes what I think is going to come off as ‘funny’ just…well, doesn’t.

I did manage to put a ton of stuff on my Zen, and when I walked away from the computer issues I was having I did a little knitting while listening to The Historian. My current status on my Festivus stocking is over yonder <— I’m enjoying this a lot – it’s the stocking in the Holiday 2006 issue of Interweave. I changed it just a bit – I’m not using the Jamieson’s Shetland called for in the pattern, I’m using Cascade 220, and I’m not using the size 2 (!) needles, either. I’m using 4’s and 3’s (it’s still a maybe on the 3’s, I’ll let you know…) this makes the gauge just a tad bigger so I cut out one repeat of the pattern so it’s not gargantuan. Even with the repeat removed, RR is still looking kinda nervous at the size of this thing. I did tell him that he didn’t need to fill it…and I meant it – I’m happy with what I already have.

Also, you guys haven’t been hearing much about Xmess knitting from me because…I’m not doing it ;o) Nothing. Nada. I refuse to put myself through what I put myself through last year so there :op …okay except maybe for one thing…RR’s brother’s girlfriend’s (now fiance) daughter had a baby a couple months ago…

The other big happening today is…Christmas landed at chez ‘Lu in a big way. We went and picked out our tree (yay!) and got it up (yay!) put lights on it (yay! yay!) AND nobody got hurt. Including the tree – and the house ;o) Although, in this picture it kinda looks like RR got eaten by the thing, doesn’t it?

Wanna see a lit picture (of the tree…)?

Yes Mom, those are colored lights. I caved. Fourteen years of solidarity…down the tubes. This must be true love. I will, however, stay firm on the ‘no flashing’ rule – for both the tree lights AND RR ;o)

For those interested in the Typepad issue – it seems to be somewhat fixed other than my IP address being on a blocked list – which I am fixing as you read this (unless it’s like 4:30 in the morning, in that case, I’m sleeping) ;o)

  • StoryTime Sampler 3 February 2016

    I don’t know if this project will stay here, but I wanted a spot to put all of my photos for the current sampler I’m cross stitching.

    I’ve put this on ‘hibernating’ status since I’m trying to decide what to do - I kind of want to pick my favorite 6 and make a mini sampler since there are some books in the mix that aren’t my favorites
