Totally Unrelated Musings.....

Stick with me...this post is crazy. Maybe you'll find some enjoyment in my scattered and somewhat warped thoughts......

Did you shop today? Were you the first one at the store this morning, or maybe you "camped" at the local Everything-mart to get that one fabulous thing.....
Me, I did NOT! Well, I cannot tell a complete untruth. I did do some shopping, but not until at least 10:30 am. We stopped at my work to retrieve my coat that I left there on Wednesday (Note to self - it has gotten considerably colder, wear the coat FPS!). I picked up one gift at Wal-Mart for one of my many nephews, and headed to my LYS - where I purchased some yarn for my Dad's scarf, and needles, and more yarn for two more gifts that I have added to my Christmas gift-knitting list (say that phrase five time fast). Fear not, I have back-up, or perhaps, better known as "in-addition-to" gifts for everyone on the knit-list. I'm going to call the list - "Knitty Gifts from the Knit Wit." Not an original slogan, but it works. We then headed to the mall, where I managed to get some other gifts. I'm hoping to finish my shopping in the next week, so that I can buckle down and "knit like Hel.....ga", yeah that's right - Knit Like Helga! Who, in my mind is a rather large German woman (no, not all German women are large), who also wields her knitting needles at the speed of light. I'm 75% German, so I can make this comment. I'm not rather large, but I am neither rather small, so I'll call myself medium. I digress, again. Sigh.....


Onto another topic - did you get one of these yet? I got mine, and I wore it today for the shopping expedition. Very cute! Very comfy for scouring the mall and such.
Please note - my shirt did not come with the wrinkles - I manufactured them myself. I only iron prn (in the medical field that means - "as needed"). PS - Today was not an a a prn ironing day.

Ever wonder how to display those little sample skeins that are so fab? Here's my choice for now.....I like it! Notice I'm trying hard to duck under the mirror so, as not to reveal how horrible I really look in the Ravelry shirt! :)


I did do my exercise routine this am - the first time in weeks. I've fallen into the big black hole of junk fooditis. Got to pick myself up again, and start getting in shape! :)

Knitting pics next time! For now, enjoy the holiday season. "It's the most wonderful time of the year!" I've been playing that song on the piano a lot lately. I have a great arrangement. Actually, my MIL and FIL gave me a great piano book of Christmas music a bit early, so that I could enjoy the music now. I've been playing from it for the past two weeks. I love Christmas music!

Lastly, in other news, I'm also thinking about posting a contest real soon - stay tuned!

Where to start???

prn ironing! Love it. I think of ironing as contraindicated in my life. I'm more of a spritz with water, throw in the dryer girl.

I got the gray Ravlery T-shirt. I love it. Very comfy.

Great decorating with the mini-skeins. I went to buy a set the other day and she was sold out. I'll have to keep my eyes peeled.

I love the ironing hint too - I'm with Nell - everything goes into the dryer for sprucing:) I got my shirt - just like your - love it! And the mini-skeins - great idea. Mine are still hanging out in an apothecary jar waiting for inspiration...
