Shoot Me Now!

please note signage in back of knitting is how we fund this habit
this is #9 of 13...this is just the 1st of a pair

Take this seriously.

If you love to knit, if you love your nieces and nephews, if you hate shopping, but love to give to your said nieces an nephews. It would appear that knitting would be your salvation. Think again! In the middle of November, when I began to think about Christmas Gifts, my idea was to knit something for everyone. This is what the list would entail:

13 - pairs of mittens (6 felted/7 unfelted)

7 - shruggy scarfy things

1 - lace work scarf

1 - pair of mens very long socks

1 dozen ornaments

Somewhere along the line I lost track of just how long this would take. If you need me at 1:00am, call, I'll be up KNITTING!!!!
How many days til Christmas?

A Cry Out for Help - to Jill

Welcome to my newest blog, this is just for friends. And the first shout out goes to Jill.

Update: Saturday was Emileigh's 1st big high school dance. I was invited to help out with hair and other very important things for the big night.

Doesn't she just look darling? The child is too pretty.

I would love it if you could photoshop the photos for me.

Would love to get rid of the floor molding on this one.

The second photo, would love to x out her friend and just have Em is possible? Let me know what you think about
