Ok, I'm officially nervous......

I went to Caribou last night, and got more accomplished on my grandma's scarf and worked on the fuzzyfeet when I got home last night, until I fell asleep. I got up this morning and did a few more rows on the scarf, but I'm really nervous now that things will not be finished in time. For tomorrow I need two pairs of fuzzyfeet finished, one Sophie bag that needs grommets and a magnetic closure, a scarf that needs to be finished, blocked and dry, a booga bag that needs a magnetic closure, and another booga that needs to be assembled, felted and detailed. If I weren't working and didn't have errands to run tonight, that might happen. But I'm guessing, some of that will not get finished. Luckily I don't have to work tomorrow, but felting-blocking-drying doesn't happen all in the same day as gift giving.

Not to mention, my daughter and I celebrate Christmas Day on Christmas Eve morning, since she goes to her dad's Christmas Eve night. So, that means all of "Santa's" gifts have to be wrapped by tomorrow night, and I'm going to be with my family tomorrow night. I'm guessing I'm gonna be one tired puppy by Saturday night, and then we do it all over again for my fiance's son for Christmas Day! Hell, just pass the eggnog now and call it a day!!

I got to work this morning and my December Sampler pack was waiting for me on my desk. I can't wait to take pics and show everyone the neat goodies inside. I got some great ideas from it, and the old brain gears are clicking along. I'll take it to the next Knit Detroit meetup if anyone else wants to drool over it's contents.

Also on my desk when I came in this morning was this gift from a girl I work with. She said she saw it and thought of me! I couldn't wait until January 1 to open it, since it's a calendar, so I opened it and peeked ahead and love love love it!! Take a look Knitting Pattern-a Day 2006 Calendar.

Here's a couple of updates:

It's growing, one skein down and 3/4 left on the second, then off to blocking we go.

And then, thanks to Amby and her wonder winder, and me as the incompetent human swift I brought home this glorious sight. The rest of my Cascade 220 is waiting for it's final destination.

And finally, here's the progress on my mom's booga,
which I think will be an "after Christmas is over" gift.

This will most likely be my last post till next week, so to be completely unpolitically correct MERRY CHRISTMAS to all, cuz I'm not ashamed of my upbringing, and if anyone's offended, y'all can kiss my grinch!!

Amby and I were sending good knitting vibes in your direction yesterday. Hope you got the important things done, and that you got at least some sleep last night!
