Christmas Crap

We’re housesitting for a lovely lady for a few weeks, looking after her house, cat and ‘special needs’ dog. She has a huge place with tons of room so we were finally able to host Christmas. Usually, we sponge off everyone else – eating their food, using their hot water, dirtying their linens, etc. I don’t think I’ve ever fully appreciated how stressful having eight people plus three animals in a house really is. A big and belated thanks to EVERYONE who’s ever hosted us as guests. It was undoubtedly as exhausting for them as it was for us this year. We truly loved having everyone but we also loved having them leave!

Christmas was great and everyone seemed to genuinely enjoy their handknits. Dad and Bro promised to use the hell out of their Dashings, Jane was enthralled by her trivet (she’s a knitter, too, though not obsessed) and Mom was enchanted by the lusciousness of her Tudora and Fetchings. Don’t know if anyone will actually wear them, but that’s not the point, is it?







Here’s hoping all ya’ll had a great holiday season with your families and that they all loved their handknits too!

    Congratulations on finishing all your knitting presents! My vest for S. O. is STILL not done- had to do a fair amount of frogging, but S. O. is happy with what he is seeing. Still have to finish shoulders, sew together, and do neck and armhole ribbing …
    We went out for New Years on my boat – nice day sailing the Bay. Can’t sail and knit at the same time.
