Not that I am counting...
About 7 this morning, the view out my back door was breathtaking...and not just because it was ridiculously cold!
My darlin's socks are coming along. Actually they have been a tad bit ignored. Over the Thanksgiving break I worked on them while we were relaxing at the farm. This one was ready to have the heel turned when I realized that I forgot to lengthen the leg to match the first one. Rip, rip, rip. Good thing it is worsted weight on 6's and goes pretty fast.
Chris' Physics class projects are ongoing. So far this semester, he has built a mouse trap car that self propelled itself forward and backward. Then came the monstrous cardboard boat and race. Next, a mathematically balanced mobile was built. And now...
I'm scared of next semester. Reportedly, the biggest project is to involve up close and personal study of the physics of roller coasters and the building of one. Wonder where he intends to do that and just how he plans on transporting it!?!?!
Other random projects feverishly being worked on involve:
Sorry, but that is all I can share about those 2 projects as they are gifts in the making.
Tuesday night, I taught a knitted bracelet class at my LYS and will be doing another this Saturday. I whipped one and a half bracelets out during the class and hope to finish the second one this evening. These classes have been perfect timing as they have forced me to sit down and complete the rest of my gift bracelets that needed to be done in time for Christmas.
If you are not already stressed out enough by the thought of just exactly how much time is left to finish gifts, slide down the chimney to Tami's to see what all the other Santa's helpers are up to.
