Not much to see here

On things fiber-y:
I've been naalbinding quite a bit. The sweater might be turning into a poncho for me instead. I can't put my brains to figuring out the sleeve holes on a sweater. If I don't abandon the project altogether because it appears stiff. I can't imagine it draping properly, and I don't want to waste that much wool. And I've been making hats, because they are easy. The socks... sucked. So I haven't finished them.

There's also fiber and a drop spindle sitting on the coffee table waiting to be picked up and spun.

Other then the above, I don't have much on the go.

I guess that means the weaving has managed to put itself in the background again. *sigh*

On things election-y:
The NDP (New Democratic Party) has come up with a fun new thing for tonight's english language debate. I wonder if they have any idea just how easy it would be to turn this into a drinking game. Hey, it's a friday night... no work tomorrow.

On things Christmas-y:
I'm almost done. Enough that I'm not feeling anxious about what I still have left to do before the holidays. Pies, tarts, more pies. Organizing the pizza lunch for the staff that stick it out 'til the very last day. Buying a few more presents for the nieces and nephews, and Gram, Mom and Dad, and the Brother.

Although I suppose I should get on the Bro's present sooner, rather then later. He's off on the other side of the country. I really wish he'd come back to Ontario - I miss him.

I'm even reasonably resigned to the travelling to other people's houses for multiple Christmas events. A month ago, projecting this travel in my head had me in a really foul mood. I'm a curl up at home with the hubby, dog and cat kinda gal.

Speaking of dogs and cats... you should go and check out Diane's new friends at Piffle. Adorable. :)

I am so looking forward to sleeping in tomorrow.

Sounds nice and cozy. My Christmas is fairly well in hand, most things wrapped, cards going out today (no thanks to kitty, who kept trying to grab them and dash off). Cookie baking with the kids on Friday, then just sitting back and sipping warm things and playing with the small ones, furry and not.
