Holidays

As I glance at my calendar, I still can't believe that it's December.

November went by so fast that all I remember is moving and having Thanksgiving dinner. The holidays are so much fun. On with the decorating of the tree and the smell of Scotch tape (yes tape has a smell). Afterall, I do have a fair share of presents to wrap!

I didn't make any knit gifts this year. I am currently working on a brushed mohair scarf for my cousin Samantha, and I am working on a Christmas table runner for my Aunt. I actually still need to finish my sock - I wish that I could finish all these projects! Instead of sugar plums, visions of new projects are dancing in my head.

I ordered Euro Flax from Patternworks to make a Market Bag for all my trips to the Farmer's Market this spring. I love fresh fruits and veggies and I love supporting local farmers! What else? Well I want to work on more socks and eventually make a lace shawl.

As Christmas is nearing, I am glad that I have had the opportunity to meet lovely local knitters. Just today I met some of the ladies with the Chemung Valley Handspinners and Fiber Arts Guild. I had a wonderful time knitting this morning and can't wait to return.

So there you have it folks. These are the happenings of Silly Sheep. OH, and I am going to attempt to make my own spindle! *wish me luck!*
