New toy!

Jim got me an iPad for Christmas! I am learning how to use it and so far so good. I am hoping that it will make it easier to stay up with my blog and to upload pics. For instance! Tonight I am on the couch with my cats and my knitting. I am trying to figure out how to add a pic from my iPad to my blog. More later!

This time of year

Please make sure you are well rested before going to the store. Well rested = patience. And the people who are shopping in the store with you are probably not well rested.
Please, if you are in line and there is a person behind you with kids trying to get done and out of the store, let them go ahead of you. They will be forever grateful.

Almost the weekend!

It is almost the weekend. I was just reviewing in my head what I have to get done before Christmas and I think, if my memory is right, I am down to one pair of socks for my mom. I started those yesterday, so that will be my project to get done. I also have another quilt that Chris at the Quilted Moose finished for me and that is draped over a dining room chair and just needs the binding. So I can work on that too. Oh, and we have to wrap some presents and I have to get the Christmas cards ready to go out. So that is my to do list for the weekend:
1 pr of socks
1 quilt that needs binding
Christmas cards
Wrap presents
Not a bad list.
After I get the Christmas knitting done I will be concentrating on knitting mittens for Coats for Christmas. They distribute coats for children and adults in friend in Ohio helps and I offered to knit some mitts to go with the coats. I have a whole tub of yarn I can use for that project. One of these days we will remodel my studio and it would help if it wasn't totally full at that point. But when I get a good deal on yarn, how am I to pass it up?
