Reading While Knitting

Nothing complicated; nothing too exciting, but yes, I do knit while I read. As well as during many other domestic activities.

Right on schedule

I am, weirdly.

But first, pictures from that three year old Christmas present.

I think she likes it. If she doesn't want to wear it, it would make a nice table runner:

Close-up of mistake free section.

Friends and acquaintances keep telling me how stressed they are by holiday preparations. I keep waiting for the "oh no oh no oh nos" to hit, but they haven't.

You see, I have a Secret Plan. It involves A List:

If I do everything on that list, in the order listed, I should arrive at Christmas morning serene and with enough sleep. We shall see. Tonight, I finished one Fetching, in Jimmy Bean's 8 ply from stash.

Here it is spokesmodeling one of the uneaten gingerbread houses I got made up and decorated with the kids yesterday. (I delivered them, fully assembled, right on time. A List.)

Now I have to go and quilt one end of a lap quilt before I go to bed. Yawn.

I'm reading your blog instead of crossing things off my list. That is why I'm not right on time. Love that gorgeous shawl!

I love your mom. I really do.

Is the bottom house S's? Dang it, I want to SEEEE it.

Also, I just finished Fetching, too. Um. Freezing office. They work great, used 'em yesterday.

That is one impressive list!

Oh, the stole is lovely. Really beautiful. *snort* to the closeup of the "mistake-free section." Heh. I do that one, too...

Fetching is very very nice (as is the gingerbread house). I'll have to remember that as a gift idea...
