Eating Crow


Dear Ann,

I fear I may owe you an apology. I realize I have been teasing you somewhat for your rather large christmas list of knitted objects. (12 was it?) Anyhoo, I was trying to make a list of my promised projects for various members of my family and realized my list is a teensy bit larger than yours….
I promised a Log Cabin Rug for mom’s new retreat, an afghan, warsh rags(I dunno, 6?), socks(x2); then there are the u.f.o.’s for myself: the red shawl and Noro Tam…then the socks I need to finish for DH(only half of 2nd one to finish pair), a small scarf for my friend, Christian’s, baby (just realized, I also promised a sweater). I promised my Bro a log cabin blanket. Also, I have been commissioned to make a lacey table cover, and y’all know I have yarn to make that mobius. Of course, this leaves no room for me to knit anything I see that I may want to make room for…as my Nanny would say, “You’ve got no wiggle room.” Not to mention, there’s christmas knitting. I realize some of the above P.O.’s (promised objects) could be given as Christmas gifts, providing they are passable to give as gifts. (You know what a detail freak I am…not!)
So, I hope you will forgive my moment of slight smugness, and will someone please pass the Ketchup?

  1. Too, too funny! The largest thing I am contemplating making for Xmas is a moebius, which as you know I have done before. They go pretty quickly.

    Then again, DD and I are still working on a log cabin baby blanket for a December baby. But we’re pretty far along.

    But I am hoping tonight to whip up a sewn cell phone belt carrier something like this or the one that she links to, before DD comes home Friday from my in-laws’. I see a cool project, I want to MAKE that cool project! Someone stop me! And pass that ketchup when you’re done with it, OK?
