I Don't Want To Go Back To Work





It has been a very nice 4 day weekend. And I have accomplished at least one thing...My Ariel Mitts are done! They are so pretty, and fit great...I'm wearing them as I type.







I also started a Christmas present. When these are done, they will be a pair of socks for a family member. This is Trekking 800 (I won this yarn in SAM2) knit in a 2x2 rib for the leg, the foot will be knit plain.

Mandy and I had a wonderful time at my sister's house on Thanksgiving. It was so good to see her and her family and the food was sooooo good! As if the 3 yarns she sent to me weren't enough...Monica had more birthday presents waiting for me.



Another hank of yarn (Gypsyknits in Steel Sock) and a binder with all of her patterns (so far). And my niece, Kaitlin gave me a Harry Potter bookmark and a Starbucks giftcard. We had a wonderful time knitting and talking and cooking and eating. Thanks Monica.

Well, I'm going to go knit some more on the Christmas present and maybe finish the Croc Sock (it's very close to the toe decreases)...let's see how much more I can get done before Monday comes...
More later.

It was great to see you too. And that was a lot of food. It still amazes me how I can eat so much in one day, once a year. Benjamin is going to love those socks.

And the mitts look fantastic.

Sounds like a wonderful time.

The mitts look great. I am sure that who ever is going to get those sock are going to be quite happy.

How wonderful to get more presents when you aren't expecting them - and what great presents they are, too!

Your mitts look great, and I bet they are nice and warm too!

Ooo, your mitts came out great!

(I didn't want to go back to work on Monday, either! Much more fun to stay home and knit!)

I am not taking the time to read your most current post right now, I promise I will come back and do so soon, but I wanted to take this opportunity to ask you if you would be interested in coming over to my blog and vote on the contest entries I have posted. I would like to see if I can get unbiased opinions in the voting process by asking people who didn't enter to come and vote, and am asking bloggers I read to visit me over the weekend to help with this. Thanks!!
