I think that I mentioned that I have rediscovered my love of knitting and that I have found a wonderful group of ladies who are also avid knitters. We meet twice a week during our lunch and have quite the awesome knitting circle going. I have gotten over my fear of circular needles and also double pointed needles and in fact knitted this awesome (if I may say so myself) giraffe for my nephew Kieran for Christmas using double pointed needles. Meet Gerald the Giraffe.
He was quite the labour of love as I was also not only trying to get him done in time for Christmas but I also had to meet that pesky international shipping deadline. But thanks to my awesome knitting buddy Marny who helped me with the spots and the pom poms as I was running out of time I made it and he is now on his way to France although I almost kept him for myself...kidding!
I can't wait for Kieran to open him for Christmas...well that is if it actually gets there in the time that they said that it will. Fingers and toes crossed.
Yes I know I have be MIA for over a week but I have a good excuse...really I do. I have been in full Christmas prep mode...baking, and knitting gifts, and packaging stuff for the post office and trying to get my tree decorated...you get the idea. So unfortunately my blog suffered as a result. However, I think I have things under control again and from tomorrow I will be sharing some of what I have been up to. Here's a sneak peek...
