Sorry for the silence

So sorry about the long silence but November turned out to be very busy. We had a couple of dog fight issues with Aristotle. We drove to Texas for Thanksgiving and spent a week visiting with family and friends. (and totally realizing that we miss living there and really want to go back) We no sooner got home and I fell ill with what turned out to be bronchitis but felt like I was on my death bed.

But finally things are back to normal. The house is decorated and ready for Christmas and I'm in Christmas knitting mode.

I tried to finish as much as possible to take with me to Texas so save on shipping costs. All of the purchased gifts made the trip with us but only one handknit was ready to go in time. I made a pair of toeless socks for my mother.

She and my sister are easy to make socks for because we all have the same size foot. (which is why I'm modeling these socks) I really think mom is going to love these because she always says she breathes through her feet and is always cutting the toes off her socks.

I'm currently working on a pair of socks for my sister which will hopefully be done tonight or tomorrow. I'll have pictures of those as soon as they are done.

I've got a couple more posts to make today and tomorrow so be on the lookout.

I love the colors of those socks, and they sound like they'll be perfect for your mom!
