At This Rate...

...I don't expect to finish my vest until the end of the year, if even then.


I've only managed to knit a few inches on it since the last time I showed you. Knitting has not been a priority on my list of things to do in December, though I do wish I had this vest finished so I could wear it. I could have used it several times already this season.

John gave me this funny little sheep the other day. I think he can sense that I need some cheering up. It's been gray and dreary here all week and some last week, too. I don't do well with gray and dreary, but the weatherman promises a bit of sunshine today, so things are looking up.

Next week we'll be hanging out at the travel trailer in Matagorda. Christmas dinner might very well be grilled trout or redfish or if we're really lucky, flounder.

Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas!

  2. John has great taste: the sheep is darling.

    Hopefully, when the sun reappears and the temperatures increase, the blahs will retreat.

    Have a wonderful time at your camp. Merry Christmas

  5. What popped into my head when I saw the sheep was "Ewe's not fat, ewe's fluffy!"

    Matagorda will definitely help chase the blues away. From what little I know (read?) you seem happiest at the water.

    Enjoy!

  9. I'm glad you included a close-up of the sheep - at first I thought it was some kind of interesting shell.

    Your knitting looks beautiful on its Brittany needle. So calm, so serene, so classy!

  14. The sheep must be doing the job he's so sweet. If I wasn't going to have my dinner on base we'd end up with a BBQ

  17. Isn't great when a loved one gives you a spontaneous gift, the sun doesn't even have to be out when the warmth of someone brightens your day by a thoughtful gesture. It sounds like you'll have some time to knit on your vest when you retreat to your travel trailer. I look forward to seeing your vest.
