i can't tell you how many times that thought has gone through my head the last few days!
so here it is, dec. 3rd and i haven't been very good at blogging recently (actually i have been a bit of a slacker all year!). plenty is going on, just not the inclination to pause and put it down on the blog. i was on the couch most of the weekend battling vertigo - something that i get more frequently these days. i did catch up on a lot of terrible christmas made for tv movies though and actually really enjoyed it! thankfully i had my house decorated for christmas the weekend before so i didn't have to stress that i wasn't able to get it done.
ok, but onto the backlog...
let's start with twilight.
i threw a little pre-bash before going to see the movie opening night. twelve of us total - it was a lot of fun. and i didn't take pictures. i had vampire and spellbound wine and vampire fang candy, etc. all i have left to share with you is the jones soda i had in honor of edward (swoon) or jacob.
the movie was eh but i'll see it again. the beginning was a bit painful but it picked up. new moon will be interesting as that was my least favorite book. wonder if i should make a trip to forks while they are filming? that might be kind of fun.
next up is my lovely "holly jolly" roving from moonlight baker
i had this custom dyed. not a lot of holiday roving out there and i wanted something that i could knit up into house socks like my pumpkin fields forever (also by moonlight baker). christmas is my fav time of year!
and of course by now, the starbucks knitting themed christmas decor has made it around the knitting blogs. as soon as i saw these mugs a couple weeks back i had to have them. so very cute.
i think i have 6 total. my friend/neighbor who designs stores for starbucks is getting me a few for my christmas gift to add to those that i already have. i'm having an open house in a couple weeks and will have these out to serve hot chocolate in (shown here with all my favorite teas!).
secret gift knitting is going on too of course. i am also working on the advent trees from mason dixon but am only on tree 4. stitch markers for the vyt open house saturday are also being made.
this week proves to be busy and this weekend even busier. i have the vyt open house, urban craft uprising, a vintage button sale and a trip to bainbridge with my Tuesday knitting group! those should be some blog worthy events so stay tuned!
