Angie was our special guest at Knit Night last night! She is working in our area this week -- in fact (DUH!), she's working within walking distance of my house and I should have either a) had her over for lunch-time knitting today (my day off), or b) met her someplace for lunch! What a dope. Wednesday lunch aside, I think we showed her a great time at Tuesday night knitting. You know, I never thought I'd like knitting in a group -- I like to change into my comfy clothes, curl up in my chair, knit and watch TV -- but I really do like it. There were some "regulars" missing last night, but some new (to me) folks... all very busy and intent. Let's see, there were a socks, sweaters, hats, a scarf, and a baby blanket underway.
I finished my Noro/Cascade striped scarf while watching the finale of "Dancing," I just need to weave in a couple of ends, give it a soak, and pin it out. Along with the mitered mittens and some chocolate, I think I've got my SIL's Christmas gift pretty well covered.
Just a word... I've been a fan of Marie's because I could relate to her more than any other star that's ever been on, and I'm happy that she took third -- she should have been given the boot a long time ago, but it is what it is. Technically, I think Mel & Maks should have won, but I'm happy that Helio & Julianne walked away with it.
The minute I stepped out to take the dog on her morning walk, the snow started to fly. Brrrrrr.
