And here's a nice shot of hat sunbathing in my office window and showing off those fabulous jewel tones to the world...or at least the pigeons...
Yes, my lovely office has a fantastic vista of a giant air exchange fan and heated pigeon races. Sometimes I catch myself cheering for one pidgie or the other, chanting to myself "Go Pidge, go!!" Unfortunately, others in my office don't quite understand how fascinating pigeons can be...or maybe I'm just a crazy pigeon-watching nut. In order to discourage Pigeon Derbies, the maintenance people have strategically placed fake owls glaring menacingly down at the pigeons...who summarily ignore them and continue their quest for gold.No fear for the pidgies! Maybe we could all learn something...or perhaps I could just be less bored at work occasionally.
Today, I leave you with this: my pitiful attempt to add some Christmas cheer and happy pine smell to my office. Merry Christmas!! Happy Pidgie watching!

It's also a time to be thankful for the blessings in my life. Even though this year has undoubtedly been the most difficult of my adult life, I'm lucky to have a second chance to find love and not to have to spend the rest of my life with someone who doesn't treat me like I deserve. It's not that I hate my ex, or wish him bad things (not too many anyway)...it's just that I've finally given up on the fantasy of what could have been. I spent so long thinking that even though he left, that he was still the one and that I'd never find anyone else. Several long, hard, soul searching months later, I've finally realized that there are other opportunities out there, other guys, other houses, and other lives.
Seeing as how this is a knitting blog, I'll have to admit...I haven't had much time to knit lately. What with my exam review, my pup, and work, things have been a bit hectic. I'm still working on my hat for Knit Unto Others and have several other things in the queue. After I finish my present wrapping, I should have plenty of time to catch up on the knitting this weekend! Yay!
I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season, don't forget to check out the lights!

And of course, gratuitous Wally photo! What a precious fuzzy yellow! Another thing I am immensely thankful for!

I love the way they have it modeled on their site, all chic and swingy. I can't wait to start on it! Now if only I can finish the eight million other projects I'm supposed to be working on. I also broke down and snagged some Knit Picks Andean Shine for the Tree Jacket, plus some of their beautiful new Options wooden needles. Love love! Also, check out the other additions to my stash: some beautiful Pagewood Farms Merino superwash sock yarn in color Crayon and some Knit Picks Merino Style in a multitude of colors that I have intended for Knitty's Wild Stripes baby blanket.
So much yarn, so little time! Hope y'all are having a great weekend!

I'm totally inspired by the Yarn Harlot, Crazy Aunt Purl, Grumperina, Girl Who Knits, Dogged, and many, many others...too many to list here! I live in Raleigh, just moved here, and can't wait to get to the local yarn store and meet some other knitters! I'll have to post some pictures of my works in progress as soon as the light gets better, but for now, welcome to my world!
