The Last Post Until Next Year (Probably)

So there's this thing going around (fortunately, it's not an illness) where bloggers take the first sentence from the first post of each month of 2006 and post them together. Nobody "tagged" me to do it or anything, but it sounds like fun and I just want to see what I get if I do it.

J - the comeback project is not socks, Cherry Tree Hill or otherwise, but... the comeback project IS off the needles, hurrah! (Of course, the first post of this year was all in haiku. Silly me.)

F - Sure, I joke and I laugh, and I laugh and I joke, but let's face it folks, Knitter's ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) is a real problem.

M - I have a new friend. (Said friend's name is Meekins, and he now resides at my mom's house. Some new friend.)

A - Occasionally, a person's faith in humanity can be restored.

M - You may notice that this post is happening later than usual (5:50EST as I start).

J - Let's try for those pictures again, shall we?

J - I know I still have two more contest entries to post, but I'm going to put those off just a little bit longer.

A - So if you've known me for any length of time, you're likely well aware that I have a certain thing for Richard Dean Anderson, AKA MacGyver, AKA Jack O'Neill (two l's) on Stargate SG-1.

S - Be honest.

O - Today we celebrate two pretty significant milestones.

N - Come along with me on a little guilt trip.

D - Calvin mittens.

Well. That was mildly interesting. Still here? Let's see what other tricks I have up my sleeve.
Unfortunately I forgot to take pictures of the finished hat, but you got the idea from the earlier post. I finished it Monday, wrapped it last night, and delivered it today. It was received with much happiness, and I was glad to have made it.

The Maggie mittens are... well... I still have time, right? Hopefully the TSA will comply with their own rules so I can finish them on the plane if I have to. Mom and I are flying to Seattle on Christmas Eve and staying through Friday the 29th. I'm looking forward to it, since it will be our first Christmas with the little ones.

Now that the Christmas knitting is nearly complete, I've become such a progressive thinker that I've already begun plans for the Valentine's Day knitting. You've never heard of such a thing? Let's start a new trend, shall we?

Well, since I'll be out of town starting Friday evening, I'd just like to share Merry Christmas wishes with all of my readers. I hope you have a wonderful time with family and friends and pets, and may all your knitting projects be finished in the (St.) nick of time. Merry Christmas to all, and all the best in 2007. See you then!
