I can now Kitchener!!!!!

For non-knitting people this post will mean nothing, but last night I completed my first sock type object. I have a sock that is mostly made, but I have never finished the toe before. The stitch used to close the toe is the Kitchener stitch. I now know how to Kitchener.

Now to finish the mate.

Seriously, can we add on 4 hours of time in the middle of the night this week so I can get some sleep. I still have the tree to get and decorate, my Christmas boxes to find, fudge making and baking to do and finish my shopping. Plus it is a good CVS week and we have discussed how the deals never sleep. Seriously, how can I not turn $6 into $40 if things go as planned.

If I am not a drooling moron by the time this week is done it will be a miracle. Oh, and I forgot to mention that we are doing Christmas 3 times this year. The 23rd at Justin's grandmas, Christmas eve with my in-laws and Christmas at my house. Ladies and gentlemen, I have just lost a day.

On the upside, Andrew's birthday party was a good time. Stay tuned for a post and pics.

Justin calls me Amish. Seeing as I can knit, crochet, sew and quilt. He keeps asking me when I am going to learn to churn my own butter.

To make your own butter, just over whip some Heavy Whipping Cream and press out the milk. Presto - butter!

Make some for Christmas dinner & complete your Amishnessosity!
