I am still knitting....

And perhaps when it's not so late, and I'm not so lazy, and the camera boots up to the computer faster I'll post a picture or ten. Lately it's been washcloths. My sister in law mentioned that she'd love hand knitted washcloths and I thought "What a great Christmas present!! A bunch of washcloths and some bath salts, maybe a candle". Then the psychotic sister in law calls and screams at my husband (her brother) so loudly that I could hear her from across the room before he hung up on her. (long drawn out family stuff, let's just say that this isn't unusual behavior for her). Now she's not speaking to us (or at least to him, I'm not sure where I stand in all of this....I try to avoid conflict as much as I can). I'm not sure now....do I gift the washcloths to myself....or hang on to them and still give them to her as planned. I'm leaning toward the give them to her as planned idea, just because.

I think I'll knit myself a sweater.....

Family......Sheesh! Isn't it amazing that we will treat the ones we love like poop, but to a perfect stranger we will be polite and sweet? I've got that same problem.

Hey thanks for the welcome to Colorado on my blog. Hmmmm sounds like I won't be planting a food garden, eh? Hooved rats! I like that discription. Hahah. Where in Colorado are you?

Family politics are awful. It happens here from time to time. Plan on giving the gift anyway but maybe just a couple of washcloths. It is a very thoughtful idea. I haven't even started making any Christmas gifts (and may not)!
