Here’s some stuff that happening and some stuff that’s on my mind right now . . .
Washing: All of the handknit socks.
Wondering: Why My Favorite Things is considered a Christmas song. I can find absolutely no connection to the holiday. Brown paper packages tied up with string? That’s a stretch. If someone can explain this to me I’d be forever grateful.
Loving: The swap package that came in the mail on Saturday. Thanks to Amanda for sending such an awesome treat and thanks to Donna for organizing the whole thing.
Reading: Brown Girl Dreaming. I wasn’t sure how I’d like a book of poetry but it reads like free verse and I’m loving it.
Enjoying: Mild temps. Selling Christmas trees for Kiwanis yesterday without needing a coat – I’ll take it. Driving the Mustang with the top down in December? I’ll take that, too!
Knitting: The Scoreboard Cowl, which will be going on for a few a while longer. Also a pair of socks. And a cowl. I was not enthused with the March Through Time pattern so I frogged that and started the Leaving Cowl instead. It will be a gift if I can get my act together and finish it on time.
Waiting: For Serial to start up again. Didn’t they say fall of 2015? Hullooooooo?
Entertaining: The best of friends, gathering to celebrate another successful Christmas on the Common and the start of the holiday season.
Decorating: Everything that doesn’t move!
What’s happening in your world right now?
Hopefully you’re too involved in a good book to report on what you’re reading. 😉
Ah, now I see it! It looks like you’ve also decorated your deck with some Christmas socks!
That Leaving Cowl looks interesting. (I, too, frogged my March Through Time cowl. But I kept up with the walking!) I have been decorating and avoiding gift-wrapping and trying to get rid of a stupid cold. Also starting to go to All of the Movies. 🙂
I have half a Currents post written. You left me in the dust. I listened to Jacqueline Woodson narrator “Brown Girl Dreaming” and loved it! Fantastic book, I thought. Love all your bright and happy decor. It seems winter is passing by us all!
I’m glad you liked your package. I think it went well and would like to do another one in the Spring perhaps. I frogged March Through Time as well. My yarn wasn’t working well with the pattern. Yeah – whats up with Serial????
All those socks are so gorgeous. You should have a sock Christmas tree lol! I’m am impressed that, busy as you are, you still have a book in progress!
Sounds like fun! I’ve been enjoying the splurge of knitting a hat for myself during Christmas Knitting Season.
Also – fall 2015 officially lasts until December 20th, right? So Serial has a couple weeks left before they’re late…

Your table looks just lovely !!!
I am enjoying this warm December, too. Not quite as warm as yours, but definitely not our usual twelfth month.
that last line made me laugh out loud…at some point, do you just call it “done”? (that’s a rhetorical question 😉 and my theory about Favorite Things is that it became a Christmas song when Sound of Music became a Christmas Eve “classic”.
Re: the song “My Favorite Things”, it’s in the Christmas scene in The Sound of Music. That’s what makes it a Christmas song.
I have some Scoreboard catching up to do, too! Crazy “winter” weather this year. Love that shot of all your socks.
