ok chill out.

I know I lied, and there is no FO picture of the Upstream Socks. Corrine tried them on, and wore them last night, but I didn't get a picture. Oops. Hey, but they fit, and she loves them. Can't ask fr more than that!

Yesterday, because I deserve a break every now and then, I did some shopping for me. I bought a skein of the new Noro Sock yarn! How cool is this!

All the Noro goodness, in a sock yarn. I am smitten... even if it is hand wash only.

I also picked up a skein of Angora Extra to make my Mom some quickly mitts. There is no way her purse will be finished, so mitts it is. Last night I finished(ish) Holiday shopping, baked a pie, and made cookies for Thursday. I only had about another hour in me, but I managed to make all but the thumb of one mitt.

These are going to be for Grandma R. (Yes, it is more of the Miracle of the Macabees yarn. I am now up to a sweater, a shawl, a pair of mittens, a hat, and these mitts. And I'll still have a skein when I'm finished.) If I had two hours to put together, when I wasn't dead on my feet, I could most likely knit a pair in an evening. I'm crossing my fingers that I have a little time on Wednesday night and Thursday night to knit, and to finished my gifts! dude, and to wrap them. Ugh.

The new yarn is beautiful. You derseve to treat yourself! Grandma R's mitt is lovely.

And I still haven't wrapped any of my presents. Guess what I'll be doing on Christmas Eve?!

See you on Thursday!

Oooh, pretty sock yarn. I'll have to get some of that. I'm continually amazed at how fast you knit. In an hour, I wouldn't have had a wristband, let alone an entire mitt. :)

I can not wait to see what you do with that new Noro! It's gorgeous.

Pretty mitts! (Pretty mitties?)

You continue to amaze me. All I've made lately are balls. Balls. Balls. Say it with me . . . balls.

Oh, Noro sock yarn! It's beautiful. I don't care if the socks scratch my feet off, that yarn is so pretty, I'll wear them anyway.
