Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!

I just love days like this... even if it isn't really snowing yet ( sleet counts as wintery weather) . I know I'm in the minority here, but I really love when it's cold and pretty outside and warm and cozy inside, it doesn't hurt that I have the day off. Even when I have to work on days like this, I don't mind shoveling the walk or getting out in it. This weather feels very festive to me.
I think I'll make some soup, bake some cookies and work on my Christmas knitting.
Stay safe and warm :-)

Football vs Knitting ?

Okay, some jock publicly challenged a knitter to a blog duel. He thought there was no way a KNIT BLOG could possibly compete with a football blog. He swears there are more blog readers interested in football than knitting, all knitters being stuffy old ladies who have no knowledge or experience with the internets.
I'm thinking this lapse in judgement may be related to past football-related head injuries.
Help the nice knitter correct this poor man's misconceptions.
Leave her a comment so he knows you were there.

Update and a HINT!

Loved all the guesses about what David Sedaris gave me for my anniversary, however no one guessed correctly. Some of you were in the right ballpark, a pen, a bookmark, gum. It was a simple, humble gift, since he was limited to what he had on hand. I hesitate to go further because I'm sure I'll give it away, but here it goes....

Think: traveling around the country on tour
Think: have bags with him at book signing ( no he didn't give me his clothes)
Think: staying in hotels!
Think: oh come on, what have we all taken from a hotel?

Ok, since I'm sure that did it, the first correct answer will get prizes. Something fibery and something fun...

Now for the update part...

  • Started sleeve two on Rogue, I've just finished the cabled part and on to the long slog of sleeve, should be done to wear to Salado.

  • Finished my first Christmas present! Only 7 million left to knit!

  • worked on tree for festival of trees, tree part done, embellishing almost done. Either I'm a grownup now, who can start projects early enough to get them done for a deadline or this tree I've made is really lame and I'll be starting on one last minute as per usual.

  • got the flu and did my best exorcist impression, projectile vomiting and everything.

  • had the best (worst?) Halloween costume ever. While most girls were tottering around in heels in their sexy pirate or alice in wondertart costumes, DH and I went with a decidedly more down to earth look. We got some of these for me, and these for him. I rolled up all my hair and wore a nasty old robe and yucky slippers and gave myself a big ol' shiner. DH wore a mullet wig and nascar hat and completed the outfit with an AC/DC wifebeater.

That's about all I can think of at the moment....

Guess again ! I'd love to send out some goodies!
