First of all, I'm proud of my husband, who got all he-man
to cut down the Christmas tree (living room version) himself. He of course had help on this gorgeous day from the kids
who helped pick just the right one.
Isn't life grand when you are able to look cute for the camera in your new pink corduroys while your dad and brothers do all the work?
While the tree was being taken off the car roof and put in the stand, I took the opportunity to examine the new Interweave Knits. Which caused me to swell with another burst of pride at the essay in the back, wonderfully written by Ms. Bridget Arthur Clancy herself. Well done, missy.
Now that the BBF Open House is over (but the on-line shop still has some clearance items -- and through December 1st, free shipping for orders over $25 with the code "THANKS"), I am knitting like the wind on a sample sweater for one of the spring magazines. But I have a bunch of books I'm planning to review, along with my usual end-of-the-year retrospectives and a few "best-of-2009" lists. So I'll try not to neglect the blog for the next few weeks. . .
