how i knit to stay sane

What I’ve been working on

Filed under: Uncategorized — K @ 9:14 pm

I’ll give you a hint — pretty much everything but knitting!  I have been pretty busy with honing my baking skills (I got a Nutrimill as an early Christmas gift, so I’ve been learning how to bake with freshly milled whole wheat flour), scrapbooking (have you ever seen exploding boxes?!?), and sewing (Simplicity has patterns for really cute rag quilts that my kids are getting for Christmas!)

We took a family vacation to Walt Disney World at the beginning of December.  The baby was a trouper, and put up with us hauling him all over the place!  The big kids were big enough to really “get it” and had a great time trying out all the rides, shmoozing with the characters, and otherwise exploring Mommy and Daddy’s old stomping grounds.  (Catie declared that, when she’s all growned up, but not a Mommy yet, she wants to drive trams like Daddy and pet goats like Mommy!)

I have actually done a little knitting — nothing too exciting, but I am making a selection of different colored Palindrome scarves as belated Christmas presents for my husband’s co-workers.  They are having a ski weekend get-together (since they all work from home across the continental U.S.)  Spouses/dates are invited, but kids aren’t, so I’m staying at home — I’m just not ready to ditch the kids for a trip yet!  (And I just have to say, if I were, it sure wouldn’t be to go to somewhere cold!)
