hey there

Its the start of the holidays. Sort of. So much to look forward too. You just hope you have time to enjoy all of it. First Halloween, then Thanksgiving and then the religious holidays.

I dunno what my goals would be for this month.

1. get my Christmas gifts done. I've started on a few crochet projects. I lucked out (kind of). A neighbor knew I liked to crochet so she gave me a huge sack of 'yarn. And its pretty yarn. Dad's not so nice about it though. Lars was happy for me because he knows I'll use it. Of course, I won't be making any far out crochet hats. Maybe someday. At the moment working on slouchy hats and cowl collars.

something of this nature

2. not want so much for Christmas this year. Just be happy to be around friends and family.

3. I think most of the gift giving will be handmade stuff.

Something else to keep me busy this month. Writing. My crackship fic this month is this:

  1. Oh I really like the idea of giving handmade Christmas presents!
    I love Christmas too, and maybe it's a nice idea to be creative this year...

    With love, Kirsten

  2. Happy October!! I wish I had the patience to learn how to knit- those will make great gifts though!

  3. Those are so pretty!! I think everyone will be happy to get one for Christmas. I feel the same way about not wanting too much - I just want to enjoy being with my family. xox
