After multiple attempts with this yarn, I selected a simple stockinette stitch cowl.

Well Christmas has come and gone and now I find myself knitting for the first time in along time for myself. I was given a beautiful cowl for Xmas so I decided to make myself some fingerless mittens. I cast on yesterday and today completed both with the exception of the thumbs. So by tomorrow they should be ready for a bath abd blocking.

Today the 2nd Monday in December found me exactly where I was last year at the paradonist having a tooth extracted and an implant placed. I don't like this when this type of pattern happens. But at least I had a pretty view from my chair while having the procedure done.

It is fitting that I completed these yesterday as we had a snowstorm that gave us 6-8 inches. Outside looks like a winter wonderland today. These were a gift that was knitted in love for a friend that has had a recent loss. I am happy so say they were greeted with excitement and joy.

I am thankful for my wonderful husband who does the most amazing things for me, like searching for the best tasting sheep/goat cheese so that I can enjoy cheese again.
I am thankful for my family both by name and by heart. I have such an amazing group of people that I call family.
I am thankful for my bad days and my good days, even though I am in the shadow of some personal bad days, I know that I will have good days again.
I am thankful for my job and the people I work for and with. They are truly a blessing.
I am thankful for two needles and yarn that allow me to express myself and share my love.
I am very thankful for the good, the bad and the ugly.

So we got up early on Saturday morning and headed to my local knit shop to pick up yarn. While picking out yarn, I got an early Christmas present as I saw my friend in a knitting class there, learning to knit so she can make me something. That is so awesome! So by 12 pm I was home and picked up my needles.

This was a sound Sunday for Preston and I. We love being on the a/v team at church, even though we both are not morning people. We have been a part of the team for so long it would feel weird if we didn't.
I always have a few moments to knit when we are on sound. In fact, the preachers get a little worried if I am not. I have knit several pairs of "sermon" socks over the years.
So today's pictures is the current one. First pic was from rehearsal on Saturday and then the last is where I ended after the 2nd service today.

Sunday dawned with an incredible headache for me, sinus and migraine and nothing I did helped it. As now I am on medication that doesn't allow me to take Advil or aspirin it really limits what helps. So I stayed home from church and watched football and knitted. I finished sock #1 on Emerald City and by bed time I cast on sock #2. This time I made sure to cast on enough stitches so I don't have to knit this sock twice.
Preston made an wonderful dinner of Hot Italian sausage and spaghetti squash. He added grilled red peppers and Parmesan cheese. So delicious and so yummy. When I am sick nothing sounds good but this hit all the right notes. I am looking forward to leftovers tonight.

However I had a wonderful walk this morning and enjoyed watching the ducks, squirrels, cows, etc at the farm I walk. I forgot how much these morning walks calm my mind. So here are the ducks.

Saturday was allergy day for me, so I stayed around the house knitting while Hubby was out and about. Sunday was filled with church, knitting and football. I enjoyed that lovely Gluten Free Carrot Cupcake on Sunday. Plus my Dallas Cowboys won! I rained on Saturday night into Sunday afternoon which made the weekend perfect. Tonight more sock knitting will be done with more football.
