Knit it, Violet!
Finished objects, works in progress, and lots of rambling about two sticks and some string...

Christmas knitting has commenced. I know there are a few family members that spy on me show their interest in my life by reading my blog, so I've thought long and hard about how to blog about Christmas gifts without ruining the surprise. So, here we go. I'll post some progress shots, but I'm going to be vauge about exactly what I'm knitting and who it's for. If you hang in there until December, I'll be posting it all before it's gifted, though. I'll also be posting details on Ravelry, since my family won't be able to peek there. Anyway, I'm a few inches into the above pattern and I'm loving every second of it. So easy! I got to knit on it while enjoying coffee and chocolate with The Girls today. I also snagged a copy of The Knitter's Almanac at the local used bookstore. Yay!

God, this is an AWFUL picture, but I was tired and it was the best I could get. Bear with me! Since we were stitching out on the town, I needed a cute outfit, so I whipped up another Built By Wendy/Simplicity 3835 top. By "whipped up" I mean cursed the neckline and wanted to set the whole damn thing on fire, but I perservered. It's an easy peasy pattern but something just wasn't working. Kellen took me out for ice cream, which helped. I think it turned out pretty cute, too, and the girls and I all matched in our polka dotted cuteness!
