not so long after all


well we didn't get too much snow but a nice dusting to make everything white. there are still some flurries out there. i'm just about to make myself a cup of tea and take a quick break from work to knit for a little bit.

sadly it won't be on my handspun christmas socks. despite the effort these were not enough of a priority for me to finish (since they are for me after all). christmas gift knitting is on the needles in their place for now. i will finish them after the holidays though so i can wear them next year.

i also picked up a great book that i would love to start knitting from but again - no selfish knitting right now.


i love the pattern on the cover and so many others.

and a little something i ordered this year after seeing the bazillion ads in martha about them...


i have ordered custom m&ms in the past but not with pics. lily is on one and cooper on the other. i just couldn't resist. and although i did get a concerned look from a friend i am not convinced this makes me a crazy cat lady.....yet. :)

That knitting book looks great! I may have to add it to my wish list ; ) I was thinking of ordering those M&M's for my parents and no you are not a crazy cat person. I think it's cute.

hope you're doing alright in the snow. it looked kind of crazy on the news a couple of days ago. i am jealous that you have the new handpaint socks books. i haven't been able to find it anywhere yet. and those m&ms are great. i love that your cat is on them.

happy holidays!
