I do sincerely apologize for not posting…the past two days.
But as Christmas draws closer, knitting deadlines must be met.
Haha, you all can guess what I’ve been doing.
Out of the 3 fair isle hats (which is actually gone down to 2, which I’m really happy about), 2 cowls (the hat number went down, but the cowl number went up. Which is totally ok with me, cause cowls are so easy. Yessss), one sweater, and…2 scarves.. (and I think the scarf number went up as well. Maybe? Maybe not, haha)
So, out of all that…both cowls are done. The sweater is about 85% complete…and one of the hats is a little more than half way done. That leaves the other hat, and two scarves.
What I think will end up happening is that on Christmas Eve, I’ll end up staying up late into the night, working and trying to finish something. Again.
This has happened before. And it was really worrying me. BUT I got it done! I was so proud of myself, haha. I think I stayed up till like…2:30 or something. Not that that matters or anything, haha…but yeahhh. I remember I was also listening to Wuthering Heights by Charlotte Bronte (which is amazing. Holy cow.)
This is a post of randomness, yaaaaayyy!
This is what I see out of my window…
And I’m sure, the non-Houston people are thinking…”O.O Palm trees?!?!??!”
and the Houston people are thinking…”RED trees?!?!?!”
Or you could be both (…or not…?) and think either neither or both.
And I invite you to imagine that beautiful tree in that picture as uberly bright red with many oranges mixed it. Alas, I am not smart enough, and can’t get the colors right…on the camera, haha.
Haha, it’s still really green near the bottom and on the inside. So it kinda looks like…one of those strawberries dipped in chocolate…cause part of it…doesn’t…have chocolate on it…
…but not. Hm. Yeahhhh.
Haha, anyways, I’m just really happy to see some variegation in our tree colors. Usually it’s just greeeeeen.
Random thing #2
Oh my, there’s a ladybug on my window.
….that wasn’t what I was going to say, haha. But I looked up and there was a …ladybug on my window, haha.
what I was going to say, is that tomorrow evening, we are going to go see the Houston Ballet (one of the best ballet companies in the WORLD, in my opinion. There are many others, haha) put on the Nutcracker.
I am so STINKING EXCITED. But I’m always excited about going to go see…any ballet. Or anything in downtown Houston for that matter, haha.
So, long story short, seeing the Nutcracker is a family tradition. And I absolutely adore it, haha.
Random note #3
I’ve been rather obsessed with the old Pokemon series. You know, like…Pikachu. And…Squirtle…Slowbro. Yeah.
Don’t judge me.
This is not my first time to have the Pokemon…bug thing. When I was younger, Joey and I would rent the VHSs (holy cow, that’s a loong time) from the library. and be entertained for hours.
And now, I’ve found them…a lot more funny than they were before, haha.
And it is my opinion that Charmander
is the cutest Pokemon EVER. Either Charmander, or Pikachu. Soooo cuuute!! but this will probably change. I’m only on episode 23, so yeah.
Haha, it’s great to watch while knitting. Because it…the show…doesn’t require a lot of thought. haha :-P
Not-so-random note #4
Dude, Christmas is like…really soon! Craaaazy!
Haha, so the whole point of this post was to say that I might not post as much during the days leading up to Christmas, due to cramped time…with knitting deadlines, haha.
I must leave now…and go knit another 30 inches. On one project. Pokemon, here I come!!
