Speaking of steps, I finished the first Fuzzy Feet sock of the pair I'm making for myself. It's awfully loooong, so I hope it felts down to the proper size. If anyone has any felting tips (especially for Fuzzy Feet), please share them in my comments section.
And that's all I've been up to around here. I'd love to be in one of those Christmassy moods that inspire me to bake cookies and quick breads, humming Christmas hymns to myself all the while. Alas, I am not. I've passed up two perfectly good opportunities/excuses to pull out the cookie sheets so I can share my goodies with others. Alas, I have not. I've had just enough energy to wash laundry, clean the bathroom, and knit. Baking leaves dirty dishes. Quilting takes up too much space right now. Knitting is juuust right. It's grief therapy.
That, and taking stupid blog quizzes. In my rag bag of blog fillers, I have a stockpile of those timewaster getting-to-know-thyself thingies. Here are a couple:
|You Should Rule Saturn|
Saturn is a mysterious planet that can rarely be seen with the naked eye.
You are perfect to rule Saturn because like its rings, you don't always follow the rules of nature. And like Saturn, to really be able to understand you, someone delve beyond your appearance.
You are not an easy person to befriend. However, once you enter a friendship, you'll be a friend for life.
You think slowly but deeply. You only gain great understanding after a situation has past.
If I rule Saturn, this will be my royal robe. And I'll wear my hair just like that.
|You Are a Gingerbread House|
A little spicy and a little sweet, anyone would like to be lost in the woods with you.
And if I wore berets, I'd get lost in the woods wearing this one.
