Four Days.

I hope everyone's Christmas/holiday (don't really want to get into all that!) knitting is going well. I only knit two things as gifts this year, the second of which will be finished tonight.

I don't feel as Christmasy as I normally do. I think a part of this is due to the fact that I am not baking holiday treats like usual. (My decision. I don't need the extra calories or the temptation.) I did manage to spend an entire Saturday afternoon making some polymer clay ornaments though:

This guy is my favorite:

and has (sadly) already been given away.

We are heading to Chicago until the new year, but I will to post photos of the gifts I have made, and maybe some other holiday goodness, using my parents (dreaded) dialup connection.

Hanging around.

So I haven't been very active lately, either on my blog or in real life. I think the cold weather has a lot do to with it. When it gets dark so early, I just don't want to leave the apartment! And we have had so much snow... doesn't anyone else remember hearing that it was supposed to be a mild winter?

I have done a little knitting, mostly a few small gifts, but nothing else worth mentioning. I'll post some photos after they have been given. (I refuse to use the word "gifted". Where did that come from anyway? I never heard it used before last year or so.)

I really wanted to finish my Manos cardigan in time for the holidays, but it doesn't look like it is going to happen. I'll make sure and post a photo if I happen to go into some kind of knitting frenzy and finish it though. (Don't hold your breath...)
