Dec 1

How quickly the month of NOROvember came and went. I had grand plans for this month to knit a whole sweater (baby sweater, but still). Alas and alack, I didn’t even cast on for this until yesterday, the last of NOROvember.

Ah, but we had some good times this month, no? Moving, the Kid ‘n Ewe festival, and Thanksgiving with those birds. Definitely good times.

And it wasn’t a total loss, I did get some knitting done. Heck, a Noro project even! I finished a pair of Voodoo wrist warmers which were started nearly two years ago. Ha! They’re knit with Noro Silk Garden (I forget the colorway/#).

I had to rip down to the thumb hole and reknit the first wrist warmer (bad buttonhole on my part and too small for my ginormous thumbs) and knit the entire second warmer. But this didn’t take all that much time –two days/nights in MN. This is a great knit, and would be good for those learning dpns (imho).

In additon to that knit and thinking about the Noro Kueryon waiting for it’s project, both Matty and I had the chance to sport our toques (#2) over the holiday. These were knit a few years ago with Noro Silk Garden, and recently I had to “control-felt” Matt’s because it had lost much of it’s shape.

And the project that just didn’t have a chance this month? The Elizabeth Zimmerman Baby Surprise Jacket knit in Noro Kueryon #165. I got started, though, and plan to continue on.

December seems almost tranquil by comparison!

    Despite the best laid plans and all that, it sounds like you still had a productive November, just not a productive Norovember. The pics are great…did you notice that the lights in the window seem to spell “HI?” Did you plan it that way?

    I loooove that pic of you and Matty! And the one of Walter is great — I still can’t believe how much he has grown. And Teri got to it before me — it totally looks like the window says “HI”.

    That picture leads me to one question-when is “Sunshine Day” coming out?

    Ok, so November didn’t go quite as planned, but is there a theme for December?

    I just tried to send you a message via the contact form linked to your name and after hitting “send” was told the form wouldn’t get to you. Ah, technology! Let me know if you get it…. Not important…just thanking you for the nice comment you left about me on another blog. ;)

    Very cute pic of you and Matty. You need to print and frame it for the mantle!
