Just popping in to wish everybody a Merry Christmas (or a really splendid Friday)!
Three guesses which thing in the photograph above provides the greatest comfort in the face of a very much worse cold. Having a bad cold isn't so bad in itself, but having it when one is meant to be spending Christmas with a group of really nice people, some of whom are immune-suppressed and facing more than enough health challenges already thank you very much - well, that means just one thing:
Staying at home with a box of tissues for company.
On the other hand, one could also say that I now have five bonus hours in which to knit the last two lingering presents
if I finish them, I could use any of these dreamy new needles (the perfect length for hats, did you notice?) to start a hat I've been wanting to make.
One might also note that TCM is running a string of movies I don't hate, but won't be tempted to watch too closely while I knit, either. All in all, kind of a fabulous agenda, don't you think?
