Really it’s embarrassing how long I’ve been away from blogging….but I’m super busy.  I’m still knitting though I’ve started the Christmas knitting extravanganza.  Tomorrow I will make a nice long boring post for all my legions of fans….

I think God hates Santa Claus…

I should be knitting every night with furious fingers stopping only to eat and the occasional horizontal wiggle with the husband so he’ll take care of the children and cook while I bury myself in mounds of yarn. I have a shawl that I have to cast on, socks to make, toques and mitts I’d …
