Hats, Scarves and Mimosas

Here's a collection of hats for the outpatients at the VA -- knit by the lovely ladies of my Sunday knitting group.

And here's a scarf from Paton's SWS -- the 80% wool, 20 % soy. I love the subtle shades -- it's for my pal Andrea, the upstairs lawyer, who's always giving me rides when my car needs fixing, and Diet Cokes, and an ear to vent into when the practice of law gets, you know, frustrating.

Most of my knitting is Xmas related -- secret sweater for my sister, socks for TwinB (TwinA shouldn't tell if she reads this!), fingerless mitts for SIL ... but I'm trying not to get too stressed out.

The Xmas Cookie Exchange is Saturday -- a group of 8 women lawyers (law gals? law chicks? law 'hos?), getting together for frivolity, cookies and gossip. Did I fail to mention Mimosas? I'm making Rice Krispie treats -- with Xmas Krispies and melted chocolate chips on top, complete with holiday sprinkles.

Well, back to the pre-vacation custody and visitation grind!

What if Twin B reads this?

The hats all look great. I'm afraid that my unwilling contribution won't measure up.

Oooh, I like Sharkettes. Twin B doesn't read the blog :(, and Twin A won't squeal.

Frustrating? Gosh, that probably NEVER happens.

Cute scarves!

Saw the SWS at A.C.Moore and thought it might be nice to try sometime. The scarf is lovely. I like the colors too.
