Random thoughts

Since I'm procrastinating about doing what I'm supposed to be doing, and since Blogger decided to work for me tonight, I thought I'd share a couple of pictures.

First, here's what I've been knitting. A Christmas gift for my best friend down the road, out of Paton's SWS. I didn't blog about it because hey, that would spoil the surprise! (Always a last minute person, I gave it to her with a note "it needs another day of drying time".)

Here's the baby sweater that I was working on. I finished it about an hour after the deadline. (Too late, too bad, so sad. Other presents were given, so it's all good.) The body seems out of proportion with the arms, so I might cast on the bottom and knit downwards.

Next is another pair of CIC chain link socks. They have more chain links on them because I was afraid that I'd run out of yarn.

Here's a couple of knitter-ly birthday gifts that I received:

a 1000 piece puzzle called "Knitter's Stash". This makes me a bit afraid. But hey, with all the different colors, it might not be as hard as I think.

Here's the 2007 Pattern-a-day calendar from my best friend down the road. It hasn't been opened yet--I'm going to try to just look at one pattern per day. (I didn't take a picture, but you'll have to trust me that it's still sealed.)

A special shout out to my twin cousin Ruth whose birthday is the same day as mine!

Happy Birthday! Don't worry, we don't look nearly as old as everyone else our age. (And you will always be older than me!)

I love the scarf you made to match the mitts. And the second chain repeat on the cic socks looks wonderful. But then, of course, you always do great things.
