I myself was not neglected by the Christmas Faerie - I got a wicked pair of mittens from my mom, as well as a super set of Kitchen Aid pots (which I badly needed - when I moved out I bought the cheapest set of pots I could find and - well - you get what you pay for). I also got some tools (I am a firm believer that every girl needs her own tools) , and a few other kitchen things from Dave's family.
There was lots of food (and I managed not to over eat, and I am actually down five pounds - woohoo!) and family and fun...
...and colouring with the dog!
And that knitting hiatus I was talking about earlier... I think the hiatus went on hiatus.
Today I finally got some much needed rest and managed to finish Dave's second sock (I started it on Christmas Day at his aunt's house)I used Fibre Trends Hellen's Favourite Sock Pattern with a simple 3-1 rib on the cuff. It has a round toe, which kind of looks funny, so when I do another pair I'll be changing it to the kind of toe my mom does (a grafted toe?).
I believe the yarn was Opal ( I lost the ball band so I can't be sure)... it's a cotton/wool blend but I'm not too fond of it... there's no sproing so my tension isn't all that even, but the colours were cool.
And now that Christmas is over, all my knitting time is my own... Purity here I come!
