OK, I'm a bad mom. My daughter will spend CHRISTmas in a cast, but that's not why I'm a bad mom. See, the kid was playing basketball last week and fell, putting her hands out to stop herself. Yeah, that didn't work so well! She cracked one of the little bones in her wrist. This particular little bone is attached to the same tendon that is attached to the elbow, so she's now in a cast up to her shoulder....

Still, that's not what makes me the bad mom of the day. It was waiting 3 days to take her to the doctor!!! The kid never got swollen, never bruised. I really thought it was just a "good" sprain (if there is such a thing).

But don't worry! She's milking it for all it's worth!!

I still feel bad, though!!!

Finished the lovely HP scarf my daughter wanted. OK, so I really hated making this one. First, did she have to pick green and gray (silver)? Slitherin colors....

The second thing that got me on this scarf was that it was plain boring!!! Knit One, Purl One for more than 6 feet!! Change colors every 24 rows... Not the most exciting pattern, but she likes it, so it's all good!

Made some really cute hats for Christmas gifts.

My daughter is a Job's Daughter ( and one of the ladies made all the girls hard candy. She put them all in babyfood jars and I made some little stocking caps to go over them. This was the first project I ever did without a pattern!!! May sound silly, but I'm pretty excited!!!

You are interchangeable.
Fun, free, and into everything, you've got every
eventuality covered and every opportunity just
has to be taken. Every fiber is wonderful, and
every day is a new beginning. You are good at
so many things, it's amazing, but you can
easily lose your place and forget to show up.
They have row counters for people like you!

What kind of knitting needles are you?
