Whew. It is 3:15 PM on Christmas Eve and the nephew and niece socks are done and wrapped. Apologies for lack of photos, but I was on a roll, what with the finishing and weaving in, that I just jumped right into the wrapping and never got the camera out. Maybe tomorrow I will photograph the socks during the unwrapping.
In addition to the socks I’ve finally finished wrapping all the other gifts, baked a tray of candy cane peppermint brownies (yum), hand washed three sweaters and finished a full load of laundry. All that’s left is to make a salad to bring to dinner tonight at my sister’s and I’m done. Jeff is probably right when he says why bring salad, no one ever eats it anyway. But I was asked to bring salad and bring a salad I will. Salad and peppermint brownies. (Yum).
Merry Merry Happy Happy. God Bless.
I should be wrapping gifts and finishing up the last pair of nephew socks. Instead I am doing this.
And, despite photographic evidence to the contrary, Jeff does not have a giant melon head and Max really is a good dog.
1968, sitting beneath my Grandmother’s Christmas tree, it really doesn’t seem that long ago. And believe it or not, I remember wearing those snazzy red shoes. Even at age two, I knew a cool pair of shoes when I saw them.
Don’t you just love Friday? I plan to catch up with family, put up the Christmas tree, and continue knitting socks.
This jumble of knitted goodness will eventually become gifts for some special kids in my life. These first three pairs are for the older niece and nephews, all between 10 and 14, so the colors are fairly routine. They look a bit bright here, but believe me, the are much more muted in “real life”.
The remaining yet to be knit pairs are for three handsome nephews, all between the ages of 3 and 6. I’d like to use some bright and cheery “kid” colors, but haven’t been inspired by what’s in my stash…yet. Hopefully this weekend I’ll find just the right color combinations.
