Please include a way for me to get in touch with you if you are the lucky winner!

I'll use a random number generator to pick a winner on January 2nd and will send that commenter tug toy!

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas! Christmas Day was spent at my folks - four generations of people, Christmas carols, games, little kids, and presents! It was a lovely day

I've lots of fun playing with the camera with all the ornaments - great close ups with varying lighting. So much fun!

The one thing lacking here has been the snow. It's almost the end of December and we've only had one measurable snowfall - two weeks ago. Normally I wouldn't care, but I kinda wanted to have some for Christmas... We did get a light dusting on Christmas Eve - it didn't stick around, but the dogs liked it. Snow seems to energize them!

I finished all my knitting projects before Christmas - a sweater for my mom, hat for dad, socks for little sister, muffler for younger brother and a scarf for my aunt. Amazing how I try to start the stuff with plenty of time but then finish with no time to spare...

I'm off school for a couple more weeks (YAY!!) so I'm going to clean, organize, finish a Knit Picks pattern that has been in the works for, umm, far too long and hopefully get another proposal or two sent in, spend some extra timing working/training the dogs and get a little sleep in on the side!

Busy, busy, busy

'Tis the week before Christmas.... Need I say more?

I'm almost ready, but I still have 4 knitted gifts to finish. I thought I started in plenty of time but I guess maybe I didn't. Oh well, they'll all get done but I sure would like another day between now and Christmas!

In other news, my dogs have been putting up with me nicely between finals prep (all finished last week - woo-hoo!!!), Christmas prep and other Christmas activities. They're getting exercised and worked, but not as much as they'd like I'm afraid. I'll have to make it up to them in the 2.5 weeks after Christmas before classes start again.

I have been able to work Kipp on sheep several times a week and my little whirlwind is making progress! I can now stop him. I know, it doesn't sound like much but Kipp is fast and doesn't like to stop so this is progress! He is a lot of dog to handle, but it's a fun challenge.
