It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

I finished my Christmas knitting. I didn't knit much this year, just a few hats, a pair of socks and some dishcloths. Last year I gave everyone handknitted scarves and it didn't seem like they were appreciated much so I thought this year I wouldn't stress out over it.

Last weekend we traveled to Arkansas to have Christmas with my family. Tonight we have Christmas with DH's dad and then tomorrow it's over to his mom's side of the family. The joy of divorced parents. We have to make plans to see four sets of people. I hope I don't ever have to worry about that in my future. One of the reasons my DH and I dated four years before getting married is because we didn't want to make sure we were sure we wanted to be together.

On to the pics!

Long time, no posting

I didn't realize it had been so long since I posted last. I kept meaning too but kept putting it off. First there was snow, quite a bit of it. Then there was sickness in the house. Now it's the beginning of the Christmas season which involves traveling.

My parents live 6 hours from us and last weekend was our trip home. Then when we came back, DH had to travel to El Paso for work. He was scheduled to come home tonight but since Denver airport closed due to the blizzard, he got pushed out until tomorrow. He's been gone since Monday morning and the boys and I are really starting to miss him.

There has been some knitting, mostly London Beanies and dishcloths as gifts. I'll try to post some pics up over the weekend. After the holidays I need to find something that really motivates me. I'd like to try something new like Fair Isle or Entrelac. I'll have to see how that goes.
