After my first trial pair, and the the pair for my mom, I got some brightly colored yarn and worked up a nice pair for myself. They kept me busy backstage while the play was going. I love their brightness, their mismatch-iness, their warmth. I like that I can knit socks now. It makes me feel pretty awesome. Now ends of the other extremities, I have a pair of mittens almost done for my little sister.
This week is bringing about some changes for us. I don't know how much I want to write about it, but it's not been an easy time. We'll get through it. It'll be good. I'm working on my swagbucks a lot to keep under budget for Christmas gifts. We enjoyed movie nights with friends and themed food:
A Christmas Story: "Who's Mommy's Little" piggies in blankets and "OooooHHH Fudge"
Elf: A snowflake cutting party, with our take the four elf food groups (candy, candy corn, candy canes and syrup). We did waffles w/syrup, candy, and candy canes, but left out the candy corn and brought in lots of bacon.
