Happy Christmas

Well I got lots of lovely stuff for Christmas including some gorgeous pressies from Sarah (of AngelTots fame) in my stocking so Thank You very much :). They included chocolates (all gone now) a fantastic smelling soap, a beautifull beaded box and a lush bath bomb. The bath bomb smells gorgeous so I haven't put it away yet it is just sitting at the side of me so I can smell it.

Well I hope your Christmas days were better than mine. LOL. DH sulked like a baby for the whole day cos he didn't like his presents. He has apologised now and I have forgiven him (mostly) though I think I may need some retail therapy to recover from it, after all I never got those Harmony DPN's I had on my list. ;)

On happier notes I have started and finished a scarf for DH. It only took about 4 days (a bit here and there) which is some kind of record for me for a finished item!!!!! He seems happy enough with it so it's been a succesfull project and it was nice to do something simple after knitting nothing but socks for a while.

I have also started WoolyWormheads Tri Peak Hat in the gorgeous handspun that Babylonglegs did for me. Unfortunatly we are still on the kids PC so no pics of anything at the moment though I have been taking them so they will get done once we have our new laptop. The yarn is gorgeous and has withstood my having to frog 4 inches of it very well indeed. I started off with 72 stiches but it came up too big for DS1 so I had to start again. And then I got into a total pickle joining my round and twisted it (somehow, I've no idea how I did it) the first 3 times. Still on the fourth time I got it right and we are off and away now. 3 inches to go and then I need to get myself a crochet hook to do the top.

I got sock yarn for Christmas so I now have enough for 6 pairs! I am itching to get cast on so I will probably do so today.

DH has a couple of interviews in the New Year. One for a GTP place and one for an LSA job which if he gets it will pretty much see us through till he starts the GTP. Fingers crossed please. Both mentally and financialy I need him to get a job soon!
