(sung to the tune of of Bobby Lewis’ Tossin’ and Turnin’)
I didn’t knit at all last night
Got to thinkin’ of you
Baby things weren’t right
Well I was spinnin’ and plyin’
Plyin’ and spinnin’
a-spinnin’ and plyin’ all night.
Well, okay, I also baked scones.
But it’s true — last night I never did get around to knitting. A rarity here at Wendyknits. By the time I finished baking my scones it was getting late, and Katarina looked so forlorn, that I did a bit of spinning instead of knitting.
I have, however, made a bit of progress on the Koigu Kersti sweater. The back is completed and I’ve started the front.
Three guesses whose tail that is in the photo.
Speaking of Baking
Dianne asked if I had made any pepparkakor. Ummmmm, errrrr, no. There will be no baking of holiday cookies here at Wendyknits. I am SO over the whole holiday cookie baking thing. Just say no to holiday cookie baking. (Hands over ears, chanting “lalalalalalala.”)
But fortunately, L-B sent me some pepparkakor! They are even made in Sweden. *sigh*
(We are not over holiday cookie eating chez Wendyknits.)
Three guesses whose head that is creating a chocolate blur in the photo.
She also sent me this adorable Scandinavian Santa.
I love the wistful expression on his face, and the little straw reindeer he’s holding. Margene, that photo is for you!
Another St. Lucia Heard From
Kerry sent me this photo of her dog, Oakley.
I had to share my Christmas card picture this year…
The outside of the card tells the story of how the crown of candles signifies the light of the sun defeating the dark of winter and the biscuits are in remembrance of how she fed the poor. The inside says, “But not all Swedish girls are this cute.”
Lucy was unmoved. In fact, all she had to say was:
“Where’s my stinkin’ homespun shawl??!!”
