Christmas Dilemma

Dear Santa,

All I want for Christmas this year is, like, eleventy billion more hours in the day.

And could I get that gift early? Like today, maybe?

Christmas Dilemma

There are two beautiful scarf patterns, the Irish Hiking Scarf from Hello Yarn, and Dad's Sharfik from the amazing Grumperina, that I am contemplating as a gift for the priest who married us and baptized Daughter. We never acknowledged his services monetarily for the baptism, and he thinks it's way cool that I knit (he brought it up during both our wedding ceremony and Daughter's baptism, don't ask me how). So I thought I could maybe whip up a worsted weight, cabley, dark colored scarf for him. Unless that's a weird idea. Which it might be. I'm not sure.

Christmas Dress
Still going. One side of the back bodice to go, as well as the button band and collar. This week, for sure, I swear!

I found you cause you linked to me on you.

Can I just say that I sew in my underwear, too?

When I was in high school, I always imagined that my husband would think I was sexiest while sewing. (turns out he just thinks I'm sexiest when I'm female)

awesome. you win.

I'm sure the priest would love to get a hand-knitted scarf from you as a thank you. It's not wierd. As for the patterns, I think they're both great. If it's an ND priest, I'd say go with the Irish Hiking scarf just for the Irishness of it... Otherwise either is really nice.

Thanks for the link to the other mommy-blog you gave me (breedemandweep). I'm enjoying that one a lot!
