How did we end up here? We've lived in Northern Illinois for 23 years. Way too long for this vegetarian! Thankfully, we're only a Metra ride away from Chicago.

Midweek Update

I finished knitting up my husband's birthday gifts Monday afternoon. This was close seeing that his birthday was yesterday! I don't know how all of you holiday knitters stay sane trying to knit up gifts for Christmas and/or Hanukkah. I realized right after I took up knitting almost 2 years ago that the only people truly appreciative of hand knitted gifts are knitters. They realize the time involved in a hand knit project. Still, I manage to forget this fact especially when the weather turns colder.
In other "news", I was contacted this week by a local Illinois Yarn shop,Chix with Stix. They ordered some of my sock bags to carry in their store. This is very cool! I hope to head over in a couple of weeks to check out the shop. If you are on Ravelry-check out the ChixWithStix group over there too.

Omg, congratulations!!! Good for you, Anna! Your bags really rock...and they're beginning to turn me into a collector. I've really begun to enjoy having a bag for every project on the needles, and I think I need more...

And yes, holiday knitting IS craziness. That's why I started in freaking August. Still craziness, though.
