I finished the first of many Puff Daddies at SnB last Tuesday, and Sarah graciously agreed to model it while Spring shot a picture. I went a little crazy on the big pompom, but I like the extra width of this version. My Christmas knitting is this close to being completed...a few Puffs, a few Bijouterie, and I can call it a day. I do need to start wrapping gifts, though.
I want to thank everyone for their good wishes for Maddie. I would do so individually, but Typepad is making responding to comments a bit tricksy today. In any case, Maddie came home this afternoon. She was thrilled to see Tilly, meh about Coco, and over the moon for Neal. She has to wear a cone to keep her from messing with her sutures, but we got the go ahead to keep it off her if she's good about not obsessing. Right now she's next to me on the sofa, sound asleep, sans collar. The house feels right again with her in it.
Maybe now I can turn on some holiday music and really feel the grace and joy of the season. What do you do to ensure you don't forget the real meaning of the holidays?
