Shopping day

December 19, 2006

Oh how much I dislike Christmas shopping.

Way too many people, no patience, pushy and needy.

We somehow managed to get some shopping done. Really, all done but for Chris’s dad and grandfather – seems like they’re always most challenging ones. Not that we got any great gifts for anyone, but alas, it’s (mostly) done.

I like gift wrapping. Shopping just isn’t my thing.

(actually, I should also include the fact that I don’t really have anything for Chris… yet)

On the contrary, I did find something good today. I made a trip over to the new lys in Urbana, got two hanks of this gorgeous yarn. Hopefully I have time to make a hat for Chris’s dad before we have to leave town for Christmas.

It’s Melange by Blue Sky Alpaca in color #803. Chris even “helped” me pick out the color.

Thing of a beauty, don’t you think?

Still socking

The work Christmas dinner was actually better than expected. Even though there were less number of people than I expected, but the food was good and everyone was actually talking.
Though, I think frozen magarita is total waste of booze.

Now onto the socks, About wee less than half way done on second pair.

Tomorrow is shopping day. I’m not at all looking forward to it.

Yeay for the first “real” post of some sort.

Still working on socks for Flo for Christmas, it’s “almost” done but not quite there yet. I was hoping to finish them tonight but I think it’s more realistic to aim for tomorrow. It’s yet again 3×1 rib for it’s stretchiness to compensate for my uncertainty on her foot size. And after thought heel, just because I don’t feel like dealing with heels right now.On the other note, I made chocolate truffles tonight!
