Catching up....a monkee post! (in more ways than one)

hmmm...i know, i know. i haven't posted in a while. school has kept me busy. as has knitting. so here's another pair of Chipman's Block mittens...i'm addicted! i have the pattern memorized! Brown Sheep Nature Spun worsted weight in Amethyst and Peruvian Pink, size 1 and 3 CPY dpn's. i love them, and my hands will finally be warm!! here they are, attractively laying in the snow.

and now, for monkee, here's the six inches of snow that fell yesterday:

so today i go out for the mail, and am almost on the porch when the mailtruck reverses from two houses down, and the guy hands me a package he almost forgot.....hmmmm,

egads, look! she actually picked up a cr*chet hook and made purty chains to tie up my parcels!!

some shirts from her b' from his school, and one loving a state i have never set foot in...

then Missy went to the thrift store and bought me Texas goodies!! bowling and barrel racing! fun!

oh my gosh! look! polyester!

this is the BEST thing in this package, hands down. just call me Linda! doesn't my hair look fab as well??

that's the true colour..and it rocks...even better? the back!

and then a little something for me to make:

awww, my monkee loves me!

i promise my next update won't be so far away...gotta knit one last Christmas gift.

They're very nice mittens, though.

What a great package! Early Christmas gift.

maybe you could figure out how to send some of that snow to monkee as a return "gift."

I've been singing "let is snow" and "I'm dreaming of a white christmas" and it isn't working.

Love the mitts. I wish I had some use for them.

Love the mittens! And isn't the snow great? We got another couple of inches over the weekend. It's going to be a white Christmas for sure!

Oh I love, love that shirt!

And all I can say to that snow is.... blah! I'm an ex-pat yankee and well.. I think I am now allergic to snow. ;)

Snow? What's snow? OHHHH that white stuff on the ground we don't have in South Georgia!
Love the mittens - my grandmother used to knit us mittens even if we did live in Florida. Always wondered why since we didn't need to wear them for very long. Now I know she did it because she loved us just like she did the cousins up north that DID NEED THEM!
