there has been some knitting

Here’s some, from our recent trip to PA,

elfishhat (1) elfishhatpompom
For a baby coming any day now… the color is better in the non pom-pom version.

From leftovers for mitts I made for this baby’s mom,
babynothumbmitts bluebabyhat
and the hat that I made at first for the new baby was way too big, so this baby got it.

These are done,

but won’t get to their recipient until after Xmas.

I’m hoping that things get where they’re going (I haven’t even wrapped anything yet!) by the Epiphany. I figure it was good enough for JC, it should be good enough for my family! But I’m still working on at least one project.

Bella! She’s maybe 8 or 10 weeks old, a standard poodle. Very sweet. Very soft. Very calm, unlike my girl or my boss’s boy was at that age… hmmm….

The other day was the first day of winter, and we have snow, and you know what that means… snow piles have begun!

Two views of the same pile… when it gets really big, the mound is nearly to the erosion fence by the edge of the woods. Just in case you want to get a head start on that snow melt contest… I think I’ll announce it on or just before the first day of spring.

Trying not to stress. No stress. No stress. No stress.

    Nice use of the grapefruit-as-prop (or was that an orange?) Very cute puppy! Ours is doing well – we’re all adjusting and he spent a very happy afternoon at doggy daycare yesterday – slept all evening! Did *not* want to walk in the cold today – can’t imagine we’ll get too far at all tomorrow!!
