It was a wonderful day. Other than the time spent cooking, I don’t think my new KnitPicks needles have left my hands for more than 10 minutes at a time. That may change once I have to do laundry again, but I’ll be putting that off for as long as I can possibly get away with it.
I wanted share this with everyone, in case anyone still has any Spirit of Giving left in them. It’s a link to Stephanie Perl-McPhee’s blog, The Yarn Harlot. I plan to help out with her cause because I feel obligated to give back for all the pleasure I get from reading her blog. It’s my favorite blog, and when she doesn’t blog, I feel like my day is missing something, so I’m grateful she took the time to post today. If it weren’t for her, I wouldn’t be working on the Noro Silk Garden Scarf on my couch right now (just an hour or two from done), and I wouldn’t be debating making a quick run to Yarnings for more NSG. It’s a fight; I know I have other things to do, but I want the yarn. I don’t need it, but I want it. So sue me.
The boys are happy with their presents, and Alex is already counting down the days ’til next Christmas. Ryan’s delirious on his new computer. John spent the day on the desktop, trying to fix a virus. I napped on the couch during the “House” marathon, then found the Star Trek: Next Generation marathon and the rest of the bottle of pre-mixed margarita. Friends don’t let friends knit drunk, but I’m not so far gone that I can’t remember a simple K1P1 stitch. Too bad.
I’m relaxed and life is good. Merry Christmas to all, and to all a healthy and prosperous New Year!
