Check out the most unique idea for Day 12 ever - a clock, from gingerquilts in my gallery! What an awesome idea, I love it!

Sorry I missed the whole discussion about the scarves but thank you everyone! My nieces are very girly girls for being only 2 & 4. I'm already knitting them pink hats and their coats are pink too. But whatever dropdeadsuzie comes up with is great! I also got them a shopping cart and cash register for Christmas was I've been keeping an eye out for more of that crocheted food but haven't seen any recently, oh well, probably too late for Christmas now anyways.

I can't remember who asked about custom dyed yarn but I would be willing to do it but not until after the holidays. Too much going on until January. I'll probably do a whole batch of yarns again in January sometime if there any other requests. Of course if someone else is faster, have at it. Probably won't be any new stock in my shop until the new year unfortunately, just not enough hours in the day.

I don't know, for hurricanes here it is normally the water and then the canned food aisles that go bare first. I think the people of New Orleans have learned from first hand experience. Undecided

Thans for the help all! We do have to go down a little driveway to get to the cabin that probably won't be plowed but I guess if it really gets bad we could park at the top and hike it in. I think we'll save the money and go with the cheaper car. If a blizzard happens to hit while we are there we will just stay hunkered down in the cabin and enjoy the hot tub until they get the roads get cleared. I'll call avis and see what the chances of having chains available are but I won't hold my breath. I know when I rented cars in colorado in the winter they were standard issue but new orleans is another story.

I just have to say that I think we had a high over 80 F yesterday. I little colder today, but still in the 60's.

Not sure when or if I'll be posting a shop this month. My sister has been bugging me since last year to knit hats for my nieces. So, I figured while I was at it I might as well knit a few more for everyone else. Now I have 10 hats to finish before Christmas, well before the 28th which is when we'll actually see them. I bought yarn Friday and I've already finished 3 and I'm halfway done with the 4th. I think some of the women's may turn into panta's or calorimetry's instead of hats. One ball of some of really lovely cashsoft yarn each. Much cheaper than buying presents. But I must knit and knit a lot. I'm trying to do each one a little unique in color/pattern. That's also not counting the scarf for my step-mom (she bought me special yarn to make it out of, yummmm alpaca), and a bright orange hunting hat for my dad, but I've already discussed with them that theirs will be arriving late, very late, most likely in the spring sometime since we jsut saw them for Thanksgiving.

We've got an amazing trip planned for Christmas! We're going to Hot springs, NC! We have a nice secluded cabin with a hot tub reserved (http://www.hotspringstreehousecabins.com/) and then after Christmas we're going to go visit family/friends in Clarksville, TN. We're planning on renting a car for the trip because our truck has ~180,000 miles on it and just don't want to put that many miles on it or worse get half way there and get stranded. My question, is anybody here familiar with the area around Asheville, NC? Do we need to worry about what type of rental car we get at this time of year? Is there really a possibility that we need 4WD or chains? Getting those options on a rental car from New Orleans is next to impossible unless we want to pay over $1000 for the 10 day trip which isn't really feasible. So, our choices are a real wheel drive SUV (think Chevy trailblazer) or standard car (think pontiac G6). The SUV would also be $200 more. If we could take our truck it wouldn't be a problem it's 4WD and we have chains, sigh... Undecided Luckily my hubby is from Michigan and can drive in the snow, I hope he remembers how.

I finished one item last night and am still working generating ideas for the what else I want to do. I have so many ideas and trying to narrow it down. I don't know how people said they couldn't come up with ideas for this swap in the discussion thread(s)!

I was very surprised by Razor. Not what I was expecting at all. But I'm liking how it tied up so many loose ends but still left so many questions. I thought it was also an interesting way to tie the old and the new series together and still leave us wondering about the whole, "it has all happened before and it will all happen again" theme. I haven't had a chance to go back whatch it again, yet.
