The long awaited holiday vacation has finally arrived. I was really happy to see the end of school on Friday. I even got a hair appointment at the last minute. I finally donated about 20 inches of hair. I forgot what it is like to have really short hair. It sticks up all over the place, but is much lighter. I thought I would have kicked off my holiday by knitting the evenings away. Instead I came down with some mystery bug. I am trying to decide if I have the stamina for a quick trip to the store & to pick up a turtle from my friend for my DD. She has been very good the last couple of days. I just want to be feeling well enough for a little decorating and cookie making sometime in the next couple of days. Other than that enough preholiday knitting was finished to give away 4 scarves. I have had a request for more fingerless gloves & thought I would give the yarn harlot's pretty thing a whorl. I still have a funky sock monkey to finish, though I have not felt well enough to knit these past couple of days. I am hoping that changes by tomorrow. Happy Holidays.
