What have I been up to this month? Not a whole lot. At the moment I'm trying hard to wait for gall bladder surgery without going nuts. It's scheduled for this Wednesday, which is rotten timing, but we did get to sing in the choir concert last Sunday, the gifts have all been mailed, the cards almost done, and I've been working on the Advent Calendar scarf which is guaranteed to keep one's mind (and fingers) occupied. (See the sidebar for the link. Almost all of the days are there, and you can join me in being behind!) Fortunately I was able to help decorate a table for our Christmas Dessert event at church. It's always a fun way to begin the holiday season and time out from the hustle and bustle to focus on the real reason for celebration.
This is a dark and rainy month for us in the Northwest. Even the cats are noticing. The "Register Wars" are in full force.
We haven't figured out why this is the favored register, but it's almost always occupied by one or the other of our furry felines.
Lots of projects have been finished. I made a another companion for Mr. Popper. A cardinal is awaiting another wing; maybe that'll happen tomorrow.
Lots of knitting happened during our Thanksgiving trip. The Mystery Socks are finally finished. I just love the yarn color, hydrangea, and unfortunately it's no longer available.
Sophia's sweater is complete and fits. Hurrah.
David requested a "Ginger Hat" when he saw the "Mocha Hat" I made last fall. It's kind of big, but he deemed it "perfect" which makes this Oma very happy.
We must have mailed our packages too soon because some have already been opened, but that means I can share them. That'll be another post because my scarf is calling. I'm only just starting Day 6, and this is day 19. Yikes!
