This weekend :: decorating, cards, snow and knitting
This weekend ...
:: we got the tree down from the attic to set it up
:: and decorated it too (nver mind that leaning top - it always does that, but it's straight(er) now)
:: I put out some other decorations (I love that Santa Claus. He's been with us for over 20 years now)
:: I wrote some Christmas cards. I have to admit I just sign our names under the preprinted text. Each year I tell myself to up my game, but it just never happens. I know it's strange, being a writer, but I'm really bad at writing best wishes and things like that.
:: we got a snow storm
and that's really rare around here, especially this early in winter (technically still autumn even)
so our whole little country is a big mess right now (we're not really prepared for snowfall)
but I had nowhere to go, so I just sat inside near our (fake) fireplace with my knitting.
I cast on for socks. So exciting. Though I don't know why I find that exciting, I've knit several socks before. Still, it feels like "real knitting" every time I knit them. In case you're wondering about the jumble of needles in this picture, I usually try to avoid the second sock syndrom by knitting two at the same time. I keep switching between them at every sock-knitting-phase (cast on, border, leg, heel, etc.). Works for me.
It was a good weekend. How was yours?
