I've Been a Bad Girl....

Christmas being just a week away, you would expect me to possibly have several projects underway that need finishing. And you would be right. I have a pair of mittens to make, less than half a sock, and an entire hat (I started the hat, but I don't like it, so I want to redo it). Lately, however, I seem to be spending the most knitting time on, what else, a garment for me!

The Einstein Coat is growing very well. I did find out halfway through that my gauge is off, but it doesn't much matter in this oversized design. It did take more yarn than the pattern suggested, so it will be back to Webs to place another order.

I also managed to find these cute sheep buttons to use in case I don't find something more glam.

Amelia went to her first movie today. We took her to see Charlotte's Web. She was so good and sat through the entire movie. She started to get antsy toward the end, but, heck, I was getting antsy myself!

All in all, a good weekend.

I've been so tempted to be a Bad Girl too. I feel like if I don't knit something for myself soon, I'll cry! But no, I'm still plugging away on the Christmas gifts.

A bad girl you say?
Well. Bad girls rarely take their daughters to great movies, do they?
How was it? Not too sad? I want to see it myself but am worried about blubbering like a fool over a spider that is not real and who if was in my home I would likely squash!
I have to apologize - I got a wicked case of food poisoning this week and your package hasn't been mailed. I was so hoping to make the last X-Mas mail out. I guess that will mean a New Years present for you.
Thanks for understanding.
Enjoy the holidays.

No, it wasn't too sad. It was cute. Sorry to hear about the food poisoning; don't worry, I'll enjoy my package later! It's fun to get another package just when you think everything is over.

I thought it was supposed to end next week - but it actually goes until the end of January!
Good news really.
