You will all be pleased to know that I am half a hat away from finishing the secret Christmas knitting, and that it will be in the mail by 5:00 pm today. Then I may actually have something to show on this blog, other than yet more family Christmas traditions. See those pajamas? They would be my annual new Christmas pajamas. I think we got them as kids so that we would look cute on Christmas morning in photos, but it's a tradition that has continued. . . which is why all my p.j.s are some kind of red, green, or actual-Christmas-scenery festive.
In other news, I'll take this opportunity to answer some blog questions.
Elizabeth asks Inquiring minds want to know how much wool is in your stash right now?
Um, a lot. But the nights in San Diego have been surprisingly chilly. I've been wearing socks made out of Lopi. And why does this sound like a ploy to get me to send her yarn, anyway?Knitzalot comments that Your apartment is so clean.
That's because I'm spending every third night at the hospital. Ever notice how the people with the cleanest kitchens are those who never cook? Same deal.And everybody seems to want to know some variation on this theme: Does this mean the beau is also staying in San Diego?
Let me put it this way - pending the selection board results, we had plans A through K. And now that we both got our first choice, we're fortunate enough to be working on plan A. So don't worry about me and my beau - we're got it all figured out.
