I am NOT a knitting addict!

Had a wonderful dinner on Wednesday evening with the knitwits, Snorie and Uncle Brownie (so named as he is the official supplier of brownies to all knitwit gatherings) were our gracious hosts. Lulu had demanded prime rib with yorkshires and garlic mashed, and that is what UB cooked up for us, as well as a wonderful home-made bisque, squash and snow peas. For a change this year, and as UB pleaded with us to balance the testosterone levels a bit, SO's were invited, so hubby and Lulu's Robbie joined us. Well, for a while anyways, then we scared them away to the basement UB is working on finishing.

It was a great evening of gift giving, and I feel right spoiled, but even better, I was surrounded by 6 other women who were knitting equally frantically, with the same delusion that with only 3 days to go, they would be able to finish the top of their sweaters and both sleeves (just like me!). Not only that, but I am planning on whipping up a couple of pairs of socks too *g*. It really is no wonder I love these gals, they are as crazy as I am. With the speed the needles have been flying lately, I'm surprised someone hasn't lost an eye.

Thing that made me go squee! today - Mary Maxim just kindly dropped off my first ever order (don't tell my existing yarn pimps) - a new sweater, to be make from Patons UpCountry, in Khaki (I'm less than impressed with the colour, but that sometimes happens when you decide to try something new - based on a 1/2" swatch from a website) and 4 balls of Regia Jacquard. So much for yesterday's declaration that I'd finish all projects already on the needles and knit up my stash before buying more wool *g*.

Oh and on Wednesday I picked up some new Lana Grossa sock wool - it's super cool, can't wait to see how it knits up!

Hubby has to go to the dreaded WalMart to purchase the MIL's gift. She knows it's there, but did not retain the product info so we could find it elsewhere. grr. I have completed my Christmas shopping, but have not yet started shopping for the Christmas meal, but I figure the longer I put it off, the fresher everything will be. I will be headed out tonight to do that.

Then home to decorate the tree, and clean the house. I'm hoping to wrap tomorrow, and relax.

Now where did I put those needles?
