This one is for the time obsessed

I asked for and received not 1 but 2 kitchen timers this Christmas.  Yummy..... I've been hankering for a timer that goes "ding!" and Santa was kind to me. =)

The Chicken one was from Hubby.  I LOVE it!

What kind of Flower are you?

Turns out I am  a Sunflower!  =)   That made me smile.  I love sunflowers.  I think they are so hapy and cheerful.

It warms a knitter's heart

Over dinner with part of my family yesterday, my dad proudly showed off (again) the cardigan-vest I made him.  Ah....a knitter's dream come true.  Someone who truly appreciates what you make for them and  shows it off to others.  

AND, to boot, dad's girlfriend said "once he wears it, he wears it all the time!".  Oh man, that warms a knitter's heart.

This is what I want for Xmas

Can someone install this gadget on my computer??

I haven't blogged much because 13 hour work days really kills the energy level.  

At least I made a hat for Tim in between his sweater.  Now I understand how people can let knitting projects "marinate" while only half (more or less) done.  I was kinda thinking I can put the sweater aside while finishing up some other small projects.  

Like a hat for me, another pair of mittens, dish towels for my dad's significant other, socks, baby things for my brother's kid-to-be, anything else that is smaller than a man's sweater.

But I power on... summer starts.  RAAAHHHH!!!!
