‘Tis the season for decorating. Later today while loverboy watches his favourite football team (that’s European football people, aka soccer) hopefully win their match, I shall be unearthing our holiday decor. Yup, Christmas will explode upon our tiny living space in T-minus-4-hours. Scary stuff.
Back story: For the last 7 to 8 years we have been dining room table-less. Not to say that we didn’t have a dining room table, just that it’s been “otherwise occupied”. As a desk. As in our computer gear lives on it. That’s 7 to 8 years of eating on the couch in front of the boob tube. And oh how I’ve longed to eat at a table again. You know, like civilized folk do.
‘Tis the season for knitting marathons. Yup. Four gifts down, and two more on the needles. Xmas hat #3 is being knit with the most amazing yarn – Mirasol Miski. It’s 100% baby llama. Wow. Really really soft. It’s been hiding in my stash for over a year, and I simply cannot believe that I hadn’t used it up before now. It’s knitting up just brilliantly into a beret. Might have to stash more and knit one for myself too :)
‘Tis the season for countdowns. 25 more days…
