Sad nose

My nose is very sad, very stuffy. However, this will not deter me from my goal of finishing this Toasty Topper from Knitty for my nephew.

We have a horrible infestation in our kitchen. No matter how much I clean, wash dishes, and put them away, each time I return to the kitchen, every plate, glass and utensil is dirty and ready to be cleaned again. Surely there must be something more powerful than mere soap and water to combat this sad state.

My mother knitted Christmas stockings for the whole family. The stockings are striped in green, white, and red. Each stripe has something special. One has the person's name, the next has dancing people, a "Merry Christmas" message, another has the person's birthday, and finally the santas.

This year, I'm knitting one for my husband. The intarsia didn't frighten me, but it has slowed me down. I've knitted and frogged the dancing people twice now. They look pretty decent although not as wonderful as Mom's. I've got quite a bit of knitting to do before Santa arrives.
