Today was a a day preparing for Christmas. We strung the lights on our tall (17 feet) but slightly tilted tree and hung all the ornaments. Beautiful! Conrad and I also did some Christmas baking and we had ham for dinner. Can you believe how quickly the holidays are approaching? With the house smelling of gingerbread it actually is starting to feel like Christmas. Of course I also managed to squeeze in some Christmas gift knitting (shhh!) time and Kajsa and I even visited Yarn Dogs so she could pick out yarn for a pair of fingerless gloves for herself.
I'm a married woman with three children and one dog. We live in the lovely Santa Cruz Mountains in California. My biggest hobby is knitting and lately spinning, but I also enjoy other types of crafts and sewing. I like to scuba dive, both here in Monterey Bay and in more tropical locations.
