They are soooo cute! Wish I had the time to whip something up like this, they would make great little pins or could be put on magnets or zipper pulls (ideas are flowing, but the needles are in park).

I hear you Astonh! I thought I started early, but then kept changing my mind on who would get what, so that I wound up making more things than I had originally intended. I have learned my lesson!

Thanks for everyone's cheerleading! It certainly makes me feel a bit better about the gifts this year. I forget that non-knitters really won't notice the little boo-boos that glare right at me from...

Smile Yarn Harlot is great!

I've read two of her books, and some of her stories I feel I could have written. Definitely enjoyable, and very quick reads (although reading her books keeps me from knitting!).

Icky!

These are the reasons I believe it took me until my late 30s to even begin to knit. I so don't want to make stuff like gramma did, bless her heart. Knitted stuff in the 70s was FUGLY!

Unhappy Only 310 to go!

The funny thing is, I know my invite will probably come on Friday. Why? Because I'll be on vacation and away from a computer for 10 days! Ah well, at least it'll be something good to come back to!
