Happy December

Here's another thing I've been seeing on a regular basis lately:

Socks for Audrey!

The first one is done, the second I got to the end of the short rows on the train this morning. My firm rule is No Trying To Pick Up Stitches on the Train. That way lies much gnashing of teeth and ripping of hair and dropping of stitches. Fortunately I was near the end of my train part of the commute.

The yarn is Rowan RYC Cashsoft DK in Rose, and they've each needed about a ball and a little extra, which I'm going to call 3 balls because:

There's been a knot or a bit of this near the start of each ball so far, and I'm trying to minimize the number of joins, so I just cut off the first length of yarn.

Welcome to the first day of December!

I love December and the entire Holiday Season (tm)! I think this is because:
a) I do not let myself stress out. NO STRESS. No such thing as a perfect holiday.
b) I don't have a tv. No annoying commercials, woo! I don't drive to work so not much radio either.
c) I avoid malls like the plague
d) My birthday's at the end of the month, so it's one big party from Christmas through New Years. WOO!

My company's party is tonight. Wish me luck and avoidance of dessert and one glass of wine too many.

The socks are lovely! Now that my KUO and Dulaan projects are all finished up, I am going to take part in this as well. Thanks for the great idea!

I love your socks! It's a very pretty color. Good luck on the wine thing. Remember, nothing feels as bad as the next morning, after too much wine at a company party! On the other hand, you may earn the reputation as the "fun girl."

Thank you!
I'm having a good time with the socks, after I get past my neuroticism. I'm always worried they will somehow Turn Out Wrong.

Heh, I would have to do quite a bit to be known as the "fun girl." I'm too laconic to be fun. I actually had a good time at the party and no, did not consume too much booze. Yay!
