Color, Glorious Color
I have started on my Hundertwasser sock from Opal. I am very pleased with it so far and am doing quite well on the toe up. Right now I am beginning the heel flap. Have a couple of other projects I am blocking for gifts so can't show those just yet. But one of them is made with O-wool Organic and might I say again, that is fabulous yarn!
Check back next week because we are hoping to get a couple new shipments of goodies in...
Today has been a very interesting day in my home. First of all, for all Christmas' past, I have always been the one to decorate the outside of the house. Yes, that is right, me. Now I have always used those tiny white lights that just twinkle at the first sign of darkness. This year my husband decides he is going to get some of those old fashioned colored C-9 lights that I call big honking lights. All day long he carefully hung them all over the front of the house, up 4 large pillars and across the double car garage and into the bush.
Not to be outdone, I decided to add to the spectacular show. We now have some of what I call, Jane's big ass lights in the front. It looks like Candyland. They are a giant size C-9 light bulb, approximately 2 feet tall and line the walk way up to the front of our home.
I feel like I am in a scene from my all time favorite movie - Christmas Vacation - I have seen it so many times, I quote it... So it is almost dark ... and I my blood is pumping ... my husband is outside as I write this ... I better go... I think he needs a drumroll...
