Well, Christmas is over and it’s official: I didn’t get Dad’s socks done in time. Oh well. He doesn’t mind, so I don’t, really. At least I’ve got most of the way up the leg on one and finished the toe on the other, and now I can actually work on them at home in front of him, so it shouldn’t take too long.
Hopefully it won’t, too, as I still have the yarn I bought in Toronto to dive into and start knitting with. First up, the Blood and Bruises socks, for reasons too geeky to mention. I also have Lisa Souza yarn on the way; just got the email the other day.
Also, as of December 19th–in only four days–knitters around the world were able to double the amount raised for Knitters Without Borders. That’s over $120,000 in four days, for a total of (at elast count) $248,000! (though suddenly it strikes me to wonder if that’s in Canadian $$ or American–or a combination of both because people reported without stating which it was). And that’s what it was up to by the emails Stephanie had received on the 19th, who knows where it is now. Go knitters!
The afghan continues to be seamed, and I’d post a photo if I wasn’t feeling lazy/sick of looking at it at the moment. Must work on it over the weekend.
I’m also coming down with a cold, thanks to no sleep over Christmas, and one of my aunts being ill, so off I go to medicate!
