Time Flies . . . And a Whole Lot of Excuses

When you have Christmas racing at you and then you loose your power for four days. Yikes! I haven't gotten all that much knitting done, what with trying to finish up revisions on the next book, it being dark as sin at night--I don't know how people knit in candlelight--but then again maybe they weren't trying to knit a black scarf! Which is almost done, except for the ruffles and bind off.

But I did get these done-- a pair of Lions Brand Cozy Slipper Socks. I made a bunch of these last year for Christmas and still had some of the Lion Brand Boucle leftover. They couldn't be easier to knit--and quick! Really quick. These are for Matthew's OT, Chris, who is a wonderful young woman and loves funky socks to wear to work. Since she never wears shoes in her line of work, these will be perfect for her. I had to be sneaky to find out about her shoe size, but we were in her office one day and I commented about how cute her shoes were (they were cute!) and held my foot up to them to gauge the size. Then she volunteered she was a size 9 and I had my information. Ah, I should have been an international spy.

Well, since I know I won't get to post until after Christmas, I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and hope the weekend is full of love and family and good cheer . . . and of course, a little knitting.
