Non-Knitters Can Rule, Too


Alas, Cashew's stocking did not get finished. I made it to the ankle, and on the 22nd we realized we still didn't have a tree, and with family coming on the 23rd, time was tight. I could finish it, but only if I was locked in a room with snacks and all 6 seasons of Sex in the City. Obviously, that wasn't an option. Luckily, Cashew won't get the whole Christmas thing for a couple more years yet. And therefore, I still rule as the cool Mommy who handknit a stocking for her kiddo. Ok, I intend to finish the sock this week, but am taking a small break to finish some other projects. All this finishing is very difficult after receiving this gift below from Hotty Hubby. It's "Knit Me" Noro Kureyon Sock yarn!


"I know you said you only wanted one skein, but I got you two."

Isn't amazing how a non-knitter can get it? I mean, just really get it? Wait 'til I tell you what my FIL did...

Does your husband have a brother? Oh wait, I'm already married. In that case, does your husband give lessons? Mine's pretty good, but could always use a tweak here and there. :)

P.S. Happy new year!

Your knitting is wonderful and even more beautiful is that little girl of yours. I used to knit, but never created anything as adorable as what you have done. Make sure you save one of the things you have made for Anastasia along with a photo of her in it for when she is older...she will treasure it. Great site!
