Top Ten Things I Learned This Year

10. All increases are NOT created equal.

9. Just because something can be knit doesn't mean it should.

8. When faced with opposition of the aggressive type you'll never lose when you respond in LOVE.
7. I would rather have crab grass than no grass at all.

6. Marriage is matter who you're married to...if it isn't, you're not doing it right. (The same applies to children.)
5. Having a real tree in the living room is kind of a cruel thing to do to dogs and toddlers.
4. Never leave my toddler alone with a chair. He can get into all kinds of mischief to put it mildly.
3. Neighbors can be good things.

2. I need some Ravelry time limits. :-)

1. When someone comes around promising change no matter how charismatic they are make sure its the kind of change you want before you consent.

Merry Christmas!

There Is No Such Thing As "Spare Time"

There just don't seem to be enough hours in a day to accomplish all I'd like to do. So I'll have to settle for prioritizing my projects and my time. Ugh! Christmas is fast approaching. I've made jewelry for my sisters and mother this year. I think they've gotten a little tired of knitted gifts. We'll see if they are happy or disappointed. My hubby requested I design him a sweater coat. I get tons of wear out of mine and now he wants one. So its not that big of a deal except he wears a 2X and its a COAT. So its getting pretty heavy (100% peruvian wool) eh hm....and I'm really tired of the design pattern already. Thank the LORD I finally figured out how to cable without a needle or this would be a Christmas 2010 present.

We did finally finish the chairs, and they are well loved already baby!

My grandmother requested I make her a bib. Apparently in the retirement community she lives in they are all the rage. Here's a picture. The pattern will be up on Ravelry tonight I'm sure.

Anywho, I have Christmas cookies and yulecaka to make. Hoorah!

And just a peek at the hubby sweater sketch....
