The Vortext that I am (willingly) Sucked into on a Daily Basis

Ah, the joy of Ravelry , she is my mistress for certain. Not a day goes by that I haven't logged on at least one time. A vortex of knitting, fiber and yarn. I swear Ive just logged on, and two hours have passed in the blink of an eye! So many beautiful patterns and such talented knitters. This has to be the very best knitting/fiber website ever!

Now, as in the above mentioned paragraph apparently I have spent all my free time (and then some) logged onto Rav and have totally neglected my blog! Christmas is nearly here and I am so behind on wrapping (haven't even started...) as well as cleaning that we may just have to have our company come to a semi clean and yarn littered home for dinner Christmas Eve. I doubt Elizabeth will mind, she does work in a yarn shop, but what will her husband think? Their home is beautiful and really, really clean. I can see it now: please pass the mohair along with the gravy......

I have been knitting like a maniac. Making several Christmas gifts, sorry no pictures as they would be spoilers! My last favorite project was the Updated Old Classic:

I finally finished the Bird of Paradise socks on the way to NJ to visit my Grandma a couple of weeks ago. She liked the socks so much, that she is now the owner of them. I did manage to start another pair on the way home, not nearly as pretty though.

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanuka, Happy New Year, and Happy Knitting to All!

Thank you for the laugh (mohair + gravy)! That tickled me to no end. :) If it's any consolation, my house isn't ready either (there'll be cat hair in my gravy). LOL

The sweater is FABULOUS and I second Dianne, great photo! I hope you have a wonderful Christmas! XOXXO
