So the Christmas knitting mostly got completed:
Socks for Dad, Socks for Mom, Socks for brother... socks for DBF didn't get done until New Year's Eve, but at least they were a surprise. And the surprise for me?
(The old one is indeed dead. While that is sad, I was able to transfer everything. Mostly I was upset due to the inconvienience of not being able to write for work. And reading knit blogs, of course...)
But the reality is: I haven't had time to knit or blog or write, since for about 3 weeks straight I have been doing this:
This is a humpback whale spotted off of the dive boat. I have been diving almost every day since mid-December: Sometimes in the dive shop, but mostly on the boat with tourists and students, and while I am exhausted and neglecting my life, it has been great!
Also, this came in the mail a few days before the end of the year (once again I don't bother with the spoiler warning because I suspect I am the last one to get it anyway):
December 07 Rockin Sock Club shipment (and the last for this year):
Gorgeous. Probably my favorite. And I look forward to another Cat Bordhi sock with an arch increase. Pretty!
