I also saw her younger brother Gordon but he was only 4 days old, he didn't have much of a chance to show off his charm or brain power.
I haven't done a whole lot of knitting in the last week so there's not much to report. I did receive some great knitting related gifts for Christmas:
1) Regia self-striping sock yarn, 3 skeins! Enough here for kneesocks:
2) Brown Sheep Naturespun sport weight, 8 skeins! I'm thinking hats and gloves.
Ravel (Dad's cat) prefers the color "Bit of Blue"
3) Santa left a funny bumpersticker in my stocking:
I also received 2 pencils that have "In case of emergency use as knitting needle" printed on them.
4) Zonta blocking wires in their handy PVC pipe storage tube:
So yeah, I feel very spoiled right now.
Mom loved her shawl so much it made her cry. *sniffle*
