Oh Tanenbaum!

Ahh, that's much better!


Nothing like the smell of fir and twinkling lights to get a girl in the Christmas mood. I'm still behind on holiday knitting, but I have made progress, and have given up the idea of home-baked goods (that's what fancy bakeries are for, right?)

I'll try to post again soon, but if I don't, have a great festive season, keep warm, and I hope Santa puts lots of wooly goodness in your Christmas stocking. I know you've all been nice.

No, I haven't fallen off the face of the Earth, though lately I'd like to.

I'm literally buried under some emotionally-draining work crap, hopeless Christmas knitting deadlines, and about 10 feet of snow. I'm dreadfully, horribly behind on replying to the lovely comments you've been leaving me lately. So let me just say THANK YOU for taking the time to leave me a note. Despite my rude manners, I really do appreciate it.

I was away all last week on a very busy and exhausting work trip to NYC. I did manage to make a pit-stop to Purl for some cashmere and Koigu retail therapy (I'll post pics as soon as I find my camera's download-cord-thingie). While I was gone, my Bloglines accumulated to unmanageable proportions. Sadly, I'll have to quickly skim though your posts to get through it all. So forgive me if you don't hear from me for a little while. I have yet to do any Christmas shopping, baking, decorating, gift wrapping, etc... and the big day is only (gasp) 8 days away!

I think I need a slug of heavily spiked hot chocolate!
