December is moving right along...

and it is dragging me along with it. I'm incredibly behind schedule with little hope of catching up(although my husband and son went to Colorado for a week and I envision myself knitting all night long). I'm ignoring the fact that my 17 yr old daughter will be at home(and needy) as well as 3 dogs and 2 cats. My cats refuse to get along with my son's dog(whom I'm babysitting) and she(Mac) refuses to leave them alone so they are sequestered in the laundry room....Now it is 3 days later and I'm even farther behind. My older dog, Snow has been very ill(she's 13 with heart trouble)and I have spent a lot of time(and money) at the vets with her this week.
But I won't go on with all my ills. I am coming to terms with the fact that very little of my planned Christmas knitting will get done this year. I hope to go into the New Year with the resolve to plan better for the next season.
That resolution goes for the shop newsletter too. We are trying to get it out before the New Year so everyone can look at what we have going for the rest of the winter. Joy is leaving for Washington DC (to be around when her new grandson is born.) so it's going to be iffy, but we will try. Keep looking for your notice on line about it. Well onto all the chores at hand. Next post will include pictures of finished and possible unfinished project. Happy Holidays to all, and good knitting.

Early Rainy Morning

Not much time to blog these days. Im feveriously knitting away for those small gifts I have planned. Everybody on my list has a sock done for them; now for the second one. (does anybody out there know a deserving one footed person?) I think after the holidays I am done with socks for awhile. I do love knitting them but I think I need a bigger project for the new year. (of course my Vivian Hoxboro would fit the bill nicely). Wanted to let everybody know that the tree we submitted for the Alzheimers auction got a honorable mention for the most original one. We want to thank all our knitter for their contributions to the tree and we hope we can make this an annual event. Our community of knitters keeps growing and it is wonderful to see how everyone is on board when it comes to a charitable project. Well its time to get out of this bathrobe(dont even try to get a visual) and get down to the shop. Hope to see you all at this Sunday's last minute knitted gifts event. Colleen
