It's Getting Closer




I've been knitting up a storm the past week or so trying to finish up the last minute details, etc. I'm still working on the scarf for my brother but I'm not too worrried about finishing that up on time. Also duplicating names on the 2 Christmas stockings I knit and that's been time consuming mostly because I'm too picky about the letters being as perfect as they possibly can.
I'm still hoping to get a digital camera so that I can take some pics and put here because I know how much I enjoy seeing all of your finished items. I've seen some lovely things on a few blogs, namely a great Christmas stocking on Not Plain Jane and some adorable hats knit up by Miss Wooly Knits.




Just started wrapping our presents which I always enjoy. I thought we had lots of bows but who knows where they got to..........can't find them anywhere. Also started writing our our cards and found the most adorable picture of a kitty with a santa hat on which is so cute! Inside it says "wishing you a warm and cozy Christmas". We don't send out as many cards as we used to but I want to keep up this tradition as it's an important one for us.




Once I get my knitted gifts finished, I will get right back to the ever present Manos afghan. It's a "must get done" priority on my knit list. I tend to have some issues with finishing........it seems I get to the point where I'm just about ready to finish and voila! I put it down, sometimes never to be picked up again! I've been asking myself, "what's up with that", there must be a hidden insight with a message in it there, LOL.




Well, that's about it for now and I wish all of you a joyful week ahead and until next time.

Laura,

I too hope you receive a digital camera because I'd love to see your christmas stockings, scarf and other knitted goodies. The Manos afghan sounds very nice.

I hope you find all the bows you need for wrapping :)
cheers

If you don't get a digital, you can have your film developed onto disc for a small charge in addition to the prints, and they can be loaded onto your computer that way! We'd love to see photos!
