I haven't posted in a week - it's so sad - All the knitting I've been doing has been for gifts so be assured there will be many more posts after Christmas -well in January at least I can show you all the gifts after they've been gifted.

Congrats to Jesse - who graduated from grad school this saturday! and happy Birthday to Sarah who's birthday was yesterday.

Knitting Party

Okay so I had 10 knitters (and me) at my house perfect blog fodder and did I take a single picture? no. I charged the batteries the day before put the camera on the buffet and left it there all evening. Knitters were at my house for 5 hours and not a single photo of people knitting happily away jammed into my living room. Next time.
I got some lovely sock yarn in our gift exchange and my miniature knitting needles turned out cute, I have a picture of those at home so I'll have to bring the camera in tomorrow so I can at least share that.
Thanks to everyone who came to my house, and to everyone who taught me that my neighbor on the south east corner is also 326 - I'm sure they want to knit now. They didn't even call the police when people walked into their house - impressive.
I didn't get much work done only 3 rows, but I had a lot of fun with everyone.
Thanks to Erica for showing me some new cast-ons too - now I feel I have a more appropriate cast-on repertoire.

Another cut for Locks of Love

Here's E's haircut we were supposed to get our hair cut together for Locks of Love but I was very impatient and she wanted to wait until after basketball season was over. I'm so proud! I have known E. since she was born, and she's all grown up now! She even knows how to knit.

Little House

Okay - so I have to stop watching Little House on the Prairie it gets more and more disturbing all the time, it's a horrible show. Last week they took a mute boy and gave him morphine so he acted like a wild animal - until Jenny (Laura's niece) helped save him and then he learned sign language. Last night Jenny almost drowned and was having trouble because she was oxygen deprived for some long and the Dr. that helped her was going blind. Then I watched the Christmas special where Rose (Laura's daughter) was kidnapped by a lady who had lost her baby. Then after they look for her at an orphanage and pick up Samuel (a cute little boy who kept saying how much work he could do and how little he ate) they look for her and miss Christmas, they left Jenny at home by herself, and when they find her they let Samuel stay with the kidnappers and take their daughter home... why would you let any child stay with the kidnapper (it was just the wife the husband didn't know Rose was kidnapped)? Isn't this supposed to be a family show?
