2007 Christmas stamps - KNIT!

The 2007 Christmas stamps are KNIT pictures! I can hear the flurry of graph paper being pulled from notebooks - chart these babies!

I can't believe it but I'm finally down to one address! One address with stuff that has spilled out onto the porch. But I'm working on it! Now that I'm done cleaning the old place, I can get working and really get the new place up to speed. For instance - actually sewing the curtains and hems rather than just pinning them. How nice would it be not to get snagged with straight pins every time I try to open the curtains!

And I've gotten some knitting done, too. Checkout my entry on Nascar Knitting - two reversible stocking hats. I've also finished the Irish Hiking Scarf and a baby blanket. No pictures of those two yet.

Did you get Meg Swansen's e-mail newsletter? Check out for details. They've now got a video of EZ's Surprise Baby Jacket! Even though I've made one SBJ, I'd like to get the video (DVD?) - Meg explains color stripes. That's worth the price of admission right there!

And, of course, where's Stephanie? She must be exhausted already - and the tour has just started! Be kind to her, Knitting Pilgrims!

Haven't posted because ...

Okay. I haven't posted because:
  1. I spend all my time reading and waiting for The Yarn Harlot to update us on her renovation progress; or
  2. I am still moving. Isn't there some statute of limitations or something? Can't we all just give up and say ENOUGH? Well, I tried and got called back in to do some more.
But here is The Warming House:

I said


Sorry. Can't get blogger to upload the picture. It was an old picture anyway. Little house, set way back from the road. Giant tufts of pampas grass dot the front yard. Big porch. Old red barn wood. Rain barrels at the corners. Steeped roof that leads to an A-frame loft. Old growth trees surround the perimeter of the yard. The grass is getting greener each day. The trees are lumpy with buds and flowers. And the birds are REALLY getting noisy!

It's a good life.
