Lady Vi, you and your folks are in my prayers! Sounds like you are off to a great start, I'm sure you'll be proving yourself to them in no time.

Karina she's adorable!
No I didn't go to knit night, so now have to wait till the second Tuesday in January. The reason being Brian was home late & supper wasn't ready till almost 7, also late. O well. That's ok. I just need to co & knit the second sole for those slippers, then I'll be done with Christmas knitting. Well sorta, I was thinking of making Grandma a cozy for her coffee mug; she's resorted to using a plastic one b/c the ceramic ones she has dont keep her coffee warm. And I'm worried about her getting that BPA crap since she's using the tainted plastic mugs with hot coffee. She's not too bothered by it since she's 79, but I'd sure like to keep her around (healthy) for a few more years.

Carey - Thankfully my knitting don't have a deadline. I gave up on the whole Christmas knitting idea as I am just not disciplined enough to knit to a deadline. Makes it forced knitting and turns into a chore. Sometimes I knit a little on 3 or 4 projects in a day and other times I stick with one thing because is just nice to work on, like the shawl that I just finished.

Karina~How cute!! She is just too cute...I'm glad I'm not the only one that has to buy extra tips/cables so I can knit something

Christine~That would have been funny to see, our dog Shermee he would hop like a bunny in the cold..he didn't like going out either I would have to make him

Julie~I only take mine if the fevor seems to hang on for awhile or they are just really bad. Our dr is good that if you call and give symptoms if it's something going around they will tell ya and what to give them...if it's not something they know of going around they may ask me to bring them in. Isaiah's school asks that you not send them back till they are 24hrs free of a fevor. I didn't get to go to knit night last night...now I gotta wait till Jan, stickin' freezin rain...

Carey~YAY for knitting time ...

Lady Vi~Thoughts and prayers for you and your job...and parents

The drive went ok, JD said see I told you it would...but I'm just not a comfy driver unless it's here in town. My fingers have losened up a bit after holding so tight to the steering wheel YAY for Christmas music though, cause Roo just sat back there and sang herself to sleep...

Ok I've been trying to pick up the house and then hopefully get some knitting time in tonight.

ack I forgot what I was going to say all along...I just got through folding up some laundry and what do I see? Felted slipper socks for me. JD loves the wool socks I knitted for him and on weekends will wear them around or when he doesn't feel good...usually they don't get threw in with the regular clothes, they are put with the knitted socks to be washed later. I don't know how I missed them but I know what I'll be doing in the near future. I think I'm going to knit them with Encore worsted this time that way they can be hand washed but will have enough wool in them to keep him warm

O Dustina that's funny only because I almost threw Brian's slipper socks in the wash yesterday & they would have felted down to fit Jacob I'm sure. lol. Well now you know what socks to make for the D after your name

Jess, if you're an experienced seamstress, designing like that isn't too bad. I did it with my wedding dress. If you're not, then get a pattern that's close and modify it--even better, combine the patterns to make them work for you.

Lieke, I'd love to see the sock blank!

Dustina, The pattern was in a book--I don't think it will be translated. If I could get the book in Dutch, I could probably get my mom to translate. She was born in the Netherlands--immigrated when she was a kid.

Christine, your description of Boots made me laugh. What a hoot! Your neighbors sound like they've got some sad problems. Too bad for the kids!

Julie, those fevers can hang on for a few days. Hope he's feeling better soon! We'll be praying for you Sat. for your test. you'll do great!

Carey, enjoy your knitting time!

Lady V, what kind of job do you want? You've been a TA as in teaching assistant? What level? You have our prayers!

Karina, Maisy looks just adorable!!!!!

My computer is driving me nuts. Everything takes way too long. I've backed stuff up and deleted files and now have 40% free space, but it's still SOOO slow. I've done all the cleanups and defragging I can....Chris, any ideas?
