Oh, ginger snaps!

I'm missing out on knitting group today due to an upset stomach and a weird case of light - headedness. Instead, I'm staying home and knitting while watching Christmas shows on television. Not as cool as knitting group, but not entirely bad either.

At knitting group #1, I started working on some knit sushi for an ongoing swap on Craftster. Now that Dulcinea has received from me, I can post a picture! I think it's pretty funny that I can't stomach sushi, but I love the way it looks.

I've been working like crazy making Christmas decorations for my house and my (soon!) tree, so expect a picture-laden post of total festivity in the next week or so. I'm almost done with my Christmas cards, too. If only I could say the same for Christmas gifts!

On the subject of decorations, this is the first year I'm going to have my own Christmas tree, and I hardly have any ornaments at this point. My "theme" is going to be birds, fruit, and snowflakes. So far I have some cheapo gold snowflakes I bought at Target, a painted snowflake ornament and four pears found at Goodwill and dusted with shimmery gold powder, and a beaded garland. I'm looking for patterns (preferably free) for knit/felted birds, so if anyone knows of any, please let me know! I've only been able to find crochet patterns thus far, which doesn't help much. I may end up just making some out of craft felt and embellishing them with embroidery, but I'd really love to knit some for my tree.

Back to working on a TOP SECRET project while I watch bizarre new Christmas specials and cuddle with Rusty!

    Knitted sushi suits my stomach too! I have a pattern for some knitted pears coming your way, along with the moose sweater instructions! Hope you feel better soon.
