Christmas Knitting end in sight

Just finished knitting Aly's wrist warmers. YAY! I also figured out where her sweater was (thanks to a phone call with my mom where she stated there was a project of mine in her office at her house). So now that's currently my focus to finish.

We are having our family christmas with my uncle and his family the day after Christams, which means I need to get working on gifts for them. Which means eitehr baby sweater for Eric and Rachel or a baby blanket or both. For my uncle and his wife I think I'll make fudge. I am thinking that maybe I'll make a pair of wristwarmers for my cousin Leah.
I am now working on Aly's birthday present. A Dofuku kimono from Knit Kimono by Vicky Square in Lorna's Laces Sheperd Worseted in the colorway Midway. Have a month to finish :)

6 Months later :)

I have had the best time reconnecting with my fisrt boyfriend. Terry has been a blessing since June, divorce is hell, but I couldn't have asked for someone better to lean on through hte whole thing. Guess having a history and good chemistry still is a plus : )

Christmas knitting wrap up

I had every intention of getting Aly's wristwarmers done for Christmas but with my new schedule at work (I went from three days every week to 4 days one week and five the next - considered full time) I have NO time, and the days I have off are spent trying to get divorce papers filled out and off to my dad to go over (love how he went from a divorce lawyer to soon to be retired teacher in my life), I haven't had time. And not to mention still trying to train the dog to go potty OUTSIDE, not in the house.

Jen's Christmas gift is blocking on the guest room bed, Aly's cowl is done and in a box under the tree at my parents. Not sure where her sweater went that's for her birthday (I am thinking it grew legs and just walked out the door - meaning my husband accidentally threw it away). Wristwarmers are now a birthday present.
