Knitting Olympics 2006

I want to knit my Mary Maxim Halloween Sweater for the Olympics. Found the yarn, now to find the pattern. I know I enlarged all the charts and I can find them. I just can't find the booklet that came with the yarn.
I still have time to find it.

Another finished object

Today I finished Heather's socks. I started them sometime last year. She was knitting them. It is great to work on half finished projects. It makes you feel so sucessful.

Little Christmas

When we were little Little Christmas was so important. The tree would come down. We would have the last of the Christmas cake and pudding.
I guess it is time to put the trees back into their boxes.
I also plan to put all the decorations away. I will buy new boxes to pack everything into. Hopefully that means I will be organised for next Christmas.
I'll even put away the Christmas card that are stamped and addressed. Save me a step next year. LOL
