My car and I both made it out in one piece (my car was nervous though - all those frantic shoppers could care less about traffic laws!) and I am not going within 50 feet of a store until next year.

None of my recent projects can be shown in public yet, but I can't wait until I can post photos. I made some cool things, knitting and not, if I do say so myself!
