If It's Fiber...

So - I have finished the stocking ornaments and the Elvis wig. All of my planned Christmas knitting is now complete.
I have taken pictures.
But - on our trip last weekend to Fayetteville, I left my favorite maternity jacket which had the cord that connects my camera to my computer in it.
Pooters.
And when we went this past weekend to Granny's farm, a place where I just love to take pictures, I forgot the camera.
Pooters again.
At some point I will just suck it up and buy another card reader (I have misplaced my former one). Maybe that will be today or tomorrow.

I have begun working on a Surprise Baby Jacket for the baby. I have also started a pair of mittens for a friend. (She would like ones like those in a Laura Ingalls Wilder book where the girl gets red mittens for Christmas. If any of you know which book that is I would appreciate it. As much as I read as a little girl, I never read those books.)

And speaking of books, I finished reading Da Chen's "Colors of the Mountain" a few weeks ago. It was excellent. I highly recommend it. Also, due to wakeful, pregnant nights, I just finished Agatha Christie's "Elephants Can Remember". I just love Poirot. (I also love the name Agatha. Always have. Ever since I saw The Electric Grandmother. My poor children. Little Boo is lucky he escaped the name Angus - though it is on the possibles list once again for this next one. Along with Agatha.)

Until I can put up some pictures of my completed works, please go to Yoga Beans for a good laugh. Be sure to click on some of the Previous Poses in the right hand sideber.
It's a good break from holiday stress.

  • I keep forgetting to email you your pic. I'll try to get to that tonight! I think the book that has the red mittens may be the first: Little House in the Big Woods. Please let me know which one it is when you find out. Bet you could find it on Yahoo, Google or Jeeves!

  • Hi you! Now that you've read about boyhood in China, you must read about girlhood. If you haven't already read this book, Snowflower and the Secret Fan is really really good. I think the author is Lisa See. Congrats on getting your holiday knitting done- My needles are smokin and my fingers are callused, but darnit- I'm almost done... ;P
