I CAN NOT believe how much snow we have!! I went to let the cats out the back door..which opens out..and it wouldn't go..a foot or more snow in the way!

Bill had cleaned off the walkway and driven his car only yesterday. You can't tell. The bricks that line the front garden..gone..disappeared like they were never there..but I know they are under there someplace. Poor tree out front looks like its going to break. Glad Bill trimmed back the big tree in the back since it breaks a few more branches every year. All I can say is WOW..

If it stays like this threw Christmas, I guess it will be postponed. Don't Hurt yourselves getting here. * Thats for Wyatt and Jyll..and my brother Mike. *
Everyone have a good Christmas and stay safe...Love you all!!

Christmas Knitting

Mitts inspired by Good friend, Terri Shea's book. I don't mean to brag..ok, so I do..but I did knit one of the pairs of mittens in this book :) I don't usually do this kind of knitting so doing it on my own, so to speak, was hard. I like how they turned out.
I also made several pairs of my usual..Cashmere/homespun mitts. They're kind of dark..hope you can see them.

St. Distaff's day.. moves

St. Distaff's Day Annual Spin-in. Saturday, January 3, 2009 10am to 4pm. Cavelero Mid High 8220 24th St. SE Everett, WA

I heard this today a Seaview Weavers guild.
I guess St Pius has gotten to small so its been moved to the above address. Yes, it is annoying since St. Pius is 3 blocks away but.. I do understand the need for more room. Hope its not snowing!! Hope people actually read my blog so they get this info!

Gamer Grandma

Bill snapped this photo of Trysten and I doing a mission with my sons Jerico and Marshall on Final Fantasy XI. He's making sure I'm following the right person and reading names off for me. I'm talking to the boys on the headset on Skype (an internet chat program) that works like the telephone. No pushing a buttons to talk, just talk.

We had a great time.

Meanwhile, his mama was taking detailed measurements of my spinning wheel for her graphic design classes at ITT.. or maybe it was Geometry..anyway.

Finished the black black BLACK fingerless mitts. WHEW!!

Catch up

Now that Thanksgiving is over ...Christmas looms in my mind. Oddly enough I'm nearly done shopping already. I love the internet! I love ..hee hee

Been working on several projects mostly for presents so I'm not showing any pics. Always seems if I show a Picture of a WIP that I never start it or never finish it. Delusions I guess.

I've had a lovely case of the flu/cold all week so mostly stayed in bed. Feeling much better now ..Thanks. Seems that my friend Donny in Wyoming has it too. Now I only talk to Donny on the is it we both wound up sick at the same time?? Wierd!

Did alot of Flat feet dyeing last Sunday at Elsa's, with Brad and Debby, from VYT. Haven't laughed that hard in a long time. Guess what some of you are getting for Christmas?

Been having alot of fun (inspite of being sick) with my 2 sons(Jerico and Marshall) that play Final Fantasy XI online. We get on Skype (an internet phone program, free) and chatter at each other and run Jerico threw his missions. He's trying to catch up a little even tho we have 6 years on him. Sure beats typing stuff.. Like.. "WATCH out, theres a goblin behind you!!" Because by the time you finish the sentence..he's already

Hopefully next week will be more productive. Nearly finished with the knitted presents. But, still have a little shopping to do. My husband is impossible to shop for. He already owns every tool known to man. Thanks to his loving wife of 36 years.
