New York Knitting

I decided I needed some mindless knitting for the bus trip to NYC tomorrow and I decided on this baby hat from a Debbie Bliss book that I have. I'll send it to baby Georgio (my sister, who is grandma, already has his name embroidered on a Christmas stocking so I guess it's going to stick) who will be born in London in February. I had some left over Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran from the scarf I made and I thought this would be a good stash busting project. To me, it looks a little big for a newborn but we'll see. It's super soft... lovely yarn. I love working with it.

So the bus trip leaves out of State College at 5:00am which means I will have to get up around 3:00am to get ready and make it there on time. Lord! I might as well not go to bed tonight! I know that I'm going to be asking myself, "Why did I say I'd do this???" I've been there and done this so many times before that I'm not really sure why I AM doing it!

I decided that once I am completely finished with Christmas projects, I'm going to do another baby sweater and then do a lot of little hats and socks to use up some left over yarn before starting Kepler. There are enough babies coming in this family to benefit from a little stash busting... that's for sure. I really need to get rid of all this yarn. It's taking over my house. And I love knitting socks for myself from left over yarn. Playing with the different colors and striping is a lot of fun.

My feet are freezing in the office again. Buildings built on a slab are murder on the feet in the winter. If I lived in a house built on a slab I'd just have to die! I sell a lot of them and I think....never! No way! I don't know how people can stand it.

I think I've rambled on enough for one day. Happy Weekend!

Holly...I just bought these wonderful Merrill shoes that have fur in them. My feet are so warm -- it's just the rest of my body that is cold. But, I'm always cold in the winter.

I hope you have a great time in the City (New York City, that is).
