And glad to be here! All the Michiganders are glad, too, because we brought some of our warm weather with us. We trapped in the plane and wouldn't let it out. You shoulda seen them in Texas, glaring at us as we grabbed the warmth and left. HeeHee.

I did, in fact, get the Christmas socks done, for the Knitting for the Holidays-along. Pretty, aren't they? Wildfoote yarn, size 2 needles, 64 stitches. The sock is a bit loose for my foot, but my sockies always shrink a bit when I wash em, so this will be okay, I'm sure. And lookie what else! I'm knitting with my handspun yarn! WooHoo! I was concerned there wasn't enough yarn for my handwarmers, so I went with a hat. No matter how much I knit, we seem to be short of knitted stuff in the winter clothes bin. I can't explain it, unless the kids are sharing handknits, which is possible. They keep me knitting, anyway!



A bit at a time, I'll post up some pictures. These are of my kids at South Padre Beach, playing by the ocean. The shells were so sharp the girls had to wear their shoes, but much fun was had. See the sand art? Windblown hair? Family trying to dig down to water? And what could be better than burying your sister? Heh. Much fun. Good times.
