Merry Christmas

I apologise for not having much to say in the past few weeks!
The rituals of Christmas celebrations have kept me hopping.
Cookies to make, concerts to attend, cards to write, caroling parties, looking for work for next June, family to visit, and shopping -among other things.

I have been doing a bit of Christmas sewing- and I'll post a picture of that after I give the item to my daughter. I don't want her to peek.

I've been doing a bit of knitting- tackling a sweater for myself- the first one I have knit since 1988! I am having issues with the lack of shaping in the sleeve- last time I checked my arm was not tubular, it actually increases in dimension between the wrist and bicep, but this seems to be not allowed for in the pattern, so I am going to chart out a better shape before I knit the sleeves. Put it on the to do list and hope I get to it before the next decade!

Other knitted things are finished and already being enjoyed.

I have a small project to do in the new year and I planned on drafting a men's shirt and making one up for the blog before I head back to full time work on yet another season of shows.
It is amazing how the time has flown by.

Speaking of time, I have to go, so Merry Christmas and a Happy 2012 to everyone.
See you soon.
