This weekend's project - finish a scarf, design a hat with the leftovers. :D

I love the faith The Boy has in me. He announced this morning - 12 days before his birthday, right in the middle of my Hanukkah / Christmas knitting push - "I'd love mittens for my birthday this year, Mom. With cuffs that come almost up to my elbows, ok?"

At least I have insomnia...this is the time of year when I put in at least 4 hours' knitting in the evenings after work :P

P.S. I think I'll make these, with realllly long cuffs... http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/newfie-mittens

Working on Christmas gifts...this is an authentic WW2 sweater vest. It was intended to be a sweater, but my kiddo asked me to make him one "just like the one for Dad, but with no sleeves."
(Forget stealth knitting, I just straight up tell people that what I'm working on is for others. :P)
It will be accompanied by a hat, socks, and gloves from the same vintage pattern book.
This still needs blocking, but it came off the needles around 1am :D

A few snaps from our annual Fall tour :-) I may live in Nowheresville, Canada, hours away from anything urban - but at least the scenery makes up for it!

Probably the moment I'm most proud of this weekend...teaching my 9 year old niece how to spin :D I mean, it was kind of a blind-leading-the-blind moment, since I'm certainly not an expert.
But it was awesome to see how excited she got, and how she is now planning to get her hands on a drop spindle of her very own. 
I'm thinking Auntie may be able to help her out with that...

It's ok to laugh...my euphemism for this yarn is "Rustic". It's the first time I've done anything other than a yard or two, and I used a drop spindle, and now my arms hurt :P
It's very slubby, very thick/thin, but hey. Once I let it relax for a couple of days, then dye it, at least it will be a very...um...unique gift for my knitting FIL for the holidays ;-)

I tried my hand at a brief video / written tutorial for this knitting stitch, mostly so I wouldn't forget how to do it the next time I need it ;-)

Trust me, you'll want to take this survey. Amy keeps me on track, and I would be much less functional without her ;-)
 
Got a sec? I'm working on a new resource (an ebook/workbook type) on getting focused and staying on track. I'd love your input. Check out this short survey and let me know what your business struggles are. Thanks! Can't wait to share the final product.

Woah...yes.  The Doctor as Aslan.  Never thought about it like that, but that's good.

He was Emo-Doc.  I loved him, loved the way he was childish and playful but serious sometimes.  It's just that the Girl in the Fireplace sort of ruined him for me.  I still cannot forgive him for leaving Rose.  Rude.  And not ginger!  Also Martha.  She was so incredibly whiny that I simply cannot bring myself to rewatch her episodes.  

Interesting the progression of darkness from 9, 10, and 11.  9 was dark, 10 much lighter, the first half of 11 was pretty light, then he got progressively darker, now we're back to dark with 12.  And I love that Capaldi uses his Scottish accent.  I had been so unused to hearing one that I had to caption Broadchurch to understand Tennant.  ;-)

Bragging rights
I know all sorts of obscure needle arts, including tatting. I'm also a ham radio operator (KB5IZZ). Let's see...I'm an eNFP. DYT 3/1. I can find something funny in just about anything - laughter has gotten me through some pretty crazy times. My clients and coworkers think I'm quirky, and my friends *know* I am, but most of them like me anyway. ;-)
