I have been knitting. Holiday knitting. Not really anything for me. School for the boys is busy busy busy! And they both started tumbling. Oh yeah, that job. I don't want to talk about that. But I will be starting at the new local coffeehouse next week! A knitting barista!! Sounds fun to me! I just need a few hours for me. Even if it is work. And the few extra pennies here and there will be nice. The owners are super! "Family Friendly" is what they want to be. And they told me that of course my family comes first!! So I will update you all on that once I get rolling.
What have I been knitting? A select few in my family will be receiving hand knit socks! Proof is in the picture-
I am doing six pairs total. I have four complete and one of each of the other two done. Not bad start. I have 3 of 4 teacher gifts done. I hope to sneak a pair for Hubby in there somewhere. We will see.

I have been struggling with my stash. I have so many pretty yarns. But I feel sad when I put them in the stash cabinet. So today, when my space was overflowing with yarn I wanted to look at, I grabbed a ruler and hung a few skeins on it!! It is hanging in the big window by the couch where I sit. They are so colorful! Does anyone else do this??
I have a few pictures to end with that kind of sum up how crazy things have been around here.

Knitting needles- not just for knitting. Did you know that a size 9 needle is the perfect fit for a Fruit Loop?
