Overheard at Dinner

Chichimama: “8-12 inches of snow!!!”
M: “I have no idea what you are talking about. I see no snow on my weather app.”
Chichimama: “Look! Right here!”
M: (Looking at forecast) “That is NOT at ALL what my Weather Channel says, see…oh. Hmm.”
Chichimama: “What?”
M: “Ah, well, apparently my location is still set to Chicago. No snow there!”
Chichimama: “Well, there you go then.”


Mid-October, Really?

I just realized that it is mid-October and I have yet to start on my holiday knitting.  Do you think this year’s batch of teachers would notice if they did not get a hand knit goodie?  I mean, just because there are now several teachers wandering around in lovely knitted goods that magically appeared during the holiday season, and just because A volunteered me to teach knitting for Colonial Day, perhaps the other teachers won’t know who knit them.  And really, how would they know, right?

Or should I go for the bulky knits this year?  Maybe a felted something, potholders?

I am headed off to assess the stash and start in on the family knitting while I contemplate my ability to complete a sweater, and American Girl winter wardrobe, four stockings (prior to the holidays), a scarf, a hat, and now, three+ additional knits…
