What a Hoot!

Well I finished my owl sweater - just in time for Christmas.  I weaved the ends in Christmas Eve and blocked it.  After opening presents Christmas morning I donned it for Christmas Day and couldn't have been happier.  Its pretty warm - being bulky wool and all - but luckily it was pretty cold for a South Carolina Christmas.

On the Needles now...

Up in the mountains on vacay and enjoying some quiet knitting time in the cabin.  Loving this sweater.  Will it be ready in time for Christmas?  We shall see...

Coming Back..

I'm coming back - with a lot of new knitting and hopefully even some sewing this winter... but first of all I would like to show you that I will be coming back in style.  Showing up in my new ride..

 (my Subaru Outback)
and sporting some new kicks...

(my Born Mary Janes)
OMG - I LOVE these shoes!  They are uber comfortable and show off my hand knit socks! No longer do I have to hide them in shoes or only wear them around my own house - but I can wear them out in public and everyone can see my gorgeous handiwork - Eric calls it shoe cleavage.  I'm not sure about that - but I do love them!  :)
