Happy Friday everyone!  Today is my last day of work this year!  I do not come back to work till January 2nd!  I am very excited.

I hope to go to the deer lease this weekend and be lazy and knit (yippee).

I do not have much to report on knitting.  I have been watching Anotnio most of this week, so knitting time has been scarce.  I am knitting on a pair of socks.  Here is the progress so far (I need to finish so I can get back to Bizzle's pink socks and get back to the lazy girl shawl!).

I got some beautiful Wollmeise in Herzbult from some stash on Ravelry.  I will make socks in April with this yarn for the Solid Socks group on Ravelry.  It is a really nice red!

My Christmas came early this week......Jaime (my boyfriend, pronounced Hi-Me) got me a "Pimp Chair".  I have no clue where I got that name for it, but a pimp chair is nothing more than just a big flufry/comfy chair to put your feet up in.....I LOVE IT and I see many hours of knititng in this chair....maybe he or she should have a name like Knitiot or KnitWit or SitNKnit.....I will have to think about that.  For now, it is just Pimp Chair!


I live in San Antonio, TX and one of the reasons I live here is that it does not get cold very often (I do not like too much cold....but amazingly, still want to go to Alaska as a dream trip).  However, for the first day of Winter, it got pretty cold.  Weather forecasters were saying hard freeze, but I think it just barley got to freezing at 32-34 degrees.  That is still cold for me!  So Jaime made his famous deer chili!  It was delicious!!!  He also made me a fire because I was so cold.....How sweet of him!

I hope to post more while on vacation, but I may just be lazy and Knit!

Happy Friday everyone!
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone!

Lots going always.  I finished two more projects.  I have a had a cray few weeks.  Lots of Christmas shopping has been the wrapping will begin this weekend!

Last post I mentioned that the Lazy Girl KAL was started.  I have been doing just fine with mine and trucking on along very slowly.

I had a sweet, sweet friend get me the cutest stitch markers....they say tink, tink, drink and have a little lady sweet of her!  I love them!  Thank you Evelyn!!!
I also took a trip to Marble Falls this past Monday.  I had promised to make a lap robe for the veterans and this past Monday was the deadline (nothing like a little procrastination!).  I had a fantastic lunch with one of my knitting sisters from my online knitting group.  She is also a member of the HOT gals (Hooked on Threads) that started the drive for lap robes.  I asked the waiter to take a photo of us so I could share with all the LSSK gals....well, this waiter was quite the character, he even took a pic of himself.....little did he know, it would be on my blog for all to see!  Thank you Beverly!

My grandson had his first big is the first of many bumps and bruises!

 Yesterday I had to take my daughter to the Emergency Room.  Her jaw locked.  It has locked once before, but only for about 30 min.  So, when I woke up yesterday and I called her to wake her up before I left to work, she told me her jaw was locked.  I really do not know what to do, so I told her we would go to the ER.  She did not want to so she just asked me to warm up a bean bag thingy we have so she can apply heat to it.  I took it to her and left to work.  Then, about 30 min later I get a call from her that it will not close, and she wants to go tot ER.  I left work to take her to ER.  Apparently there is nothing you can do for a locked jaw except go to ER to have it popped back into place.  They knocked her out and replaced the jaw and she is much better now.  She is home resting and has a lot of soreness and pain, but she will be fine.  She sees a specialist next Tuesday.

Remember that luscious Pearl Yarn I won from Ravellenics?  Well, do you also remember when I said I pre-paid for the second edition of this yarn during yarn crawl?  Well, it came in!

Last but not least, I leave you with pics of my latest two FO's and a WIP.  A dishcloth for my secret santa recipient and November's socks.

Now I am working on December's socks! 

Happy Friday Everyone!!!
