Anyways, I'm bringing Happy Holly Jolliness to everyone. Why? Because there is so much chaos, that which is ours, that which is peripheral and we hold all that is good and positive near and dear.
Also I am totally endorsing all cornball holiday jokes, Mom jokes, Dad jokes (that don't involve farts, because despite what America's Funniest Videos is telling you, farts are played out, unless they're baby farts, 'cause that's always gold).
I got some holly jolly in the mail the other night! I came home after a LONG day at work and dragged my butt to get some exercise. I crawled in the front door/gate at 9:15 and there in front of the mailboxes were 2 packages.
One was from Valerie of Wandering Cat Studio! She sponsored a Fall Knit Along raffle prize with Dee from Pointy Little Sticks
The other was from our lovely all around craftslady, Araignee. I received some beautiful holiday soaps and a Penguin cards. Yes, I am fond of penguins, these particularly represent why: small, chubby = cute, much like toddlers and cats (in no particular order).
Thank you Valerie, Araignee and Dee for being such generous and fun people in the knitting and blogging community!
In knitting news, I have continued to neglect the baby sweater in lieu of socks, because Red and Green themed socks are all the rage. This is me "measuring" while watching the Manchester Derby (pronounced DAR-bee).
I have big knitting plans to keep me in holiday spirits, but there is so much to do! I have 2 dinners this week, a staff work lunch, a school play and some cookies for the school staff cookie box assembly line to bake. Somehow it feels feasible. If I haven't lost my mind I'll let you know how it goes this weekend. ;)
