Crossed In Translation - KAL

So far I've decided not to join in the Crossed in Translation KAL. I just have way to much knitting projects started. I keep trying to justify it though :-). I've subbed the KAL on my bloglines to see the wonderful work everyone does.

Last but not least! Check out Cara at January One and wish her a Happy Birthday as well as Happy New Year! She's hosting the Lost in Translation KAL, the website is beautiful. She has knitted some wonderful things including numerous Jaywalker socks.

That's MY Brother!

That is what I always say when my brother does something cool.

Anyway, I need to say that about him for this Christmas. Christmas gifts are always a stressful situation in our family. He and I have talked about how we really don't need anything and how shopping for gifts can be difficult. Well, this year he nailed it. He gave the perfect gifts this year. He made donations to Charities for us that matched us. For our family he made a donation to the Oakland Zoo because he knew we had visited the zoo recently and really enjoyed it. To my sisters family he made a donation to Habitat for Humanity which she volunteers for. Sooooo

That's My Brother!

I'll leave you with a funny Santa story. We (Steven Esther and I) stayed in a Hotel Christmas Eve. Of course Santa knew we were there and we expected a visit from him. Esther would NOT fall asleep. Steven told her a few times Santa wouldn't come if she didn't fall asleep. Understandably this did not work. It was almost 11 p.m. and she was flipping around like a fish caught on a line in the King size bed the three of us were sharing. She gets very active when trying to stay awake. I gasped and then said to her, "Did you here that?" She whispered, "Yes". Then I said, "Oh! we better pretend we're asleep!". She put her little fists up to her eyes and snuggled next to me. She was asleep in less than a minute.

The Wild Frontier

Well, the Fuzzy Feet gifts were hits but so were the Frontier Hats. I'm now making a few for Esther's Preschool for dress up play. They will be in traditional colors and I've found doubling the yarn with Bernat Boa and Lion Brand fur makes the fabric seem a little more durable. I did have to adjust the pattern a bit to then get the right size. Somewhere someone has a picture of Esther's cousins with there hats stuck in the back of their pants so the tail is sticking out. Very Funny!

The next few days I'm going to work on my husbands sweater. I'm hoping to get a big chunk of it done before starting the Selfish KAL or Follow the Leader KAL or the Hooded Cabled Sweater....or finishing projects already started for that matter. I may be an inch or two further than this.

Anyway, I hope everyone enjoyed the Holiday and wish you a Happy New Year! I've met some wonderful people through this blog! I think my husband is a bit confused that I talk about all of you like I do the friends I actually get to see in person. But the line isn't that defined for me. You are friends and an amazing bunch of people!
