Yeah, I know.

I said I was gonna keep posting, even though the flu made me fail at NaBloPoMo. I lied. Or I got busy. Or something. I don't know. It was like I broke the streak and the motivation was just gone. Gone daddy gone. I had a fabulous Thanksgiving. It was full of good friends - who are just like family - and we stuffed ourselves, and laughed ourselves silly and knitted and just had a good all around time. It was good.

I'm getting ready right this minute to settle in and figure out the calendar for the rest of the year. I still can't believe it's December 1st tomorrow. Christmas lists are made, budgets have been sussed out, and all there is now is to do everything that needs to be done. Like the Winter Wonder Sale & Festival this weekend. I'll be working that from Thursday afternoon probably straight into Sunday night. Next weekend we have Christmas shopping with the man on Friday and a beginner's knitting class on Saturday. The following weekend is luminary. And the weekend after that is Christmas. It will all go too fast. It always does.

Plus I have a good chunk of design work to finish up before the end of the year. To that note, I present my latest knitting design. It is for woolgirl's Just Babs Knitting Club. Miss Babs yarn is fabulous of course and working with woolgirl was a delight. But hey, if you're in the club, this is major spoilage. Even though nearly everyone should have gotten their package by now.

First up, my In Full Bloom socks.

And then, and this is the really cool part. Part of my deal for this pattern included the package. And what a package it is!

Woolgirl doesn't mess around. All the very cool stuff inside is from different indie vendors. So awesome!

I'm really pleased I got to be a part of this. And hey you! Yeah, you. If you get a chance to be in one of woolgirl's sock or yarn clubs, do it! You won't be sorry!
