You Americans are crazy.  Roll Eyes Ugly Xmas sweaters are such a weird thing, really. Even discounting the fact that Christmas in Australia is usually 95-100F, and we play cricket on the beach instead of making snowmen, why on Earth would you want to wear an ugly sweater? Can someone please explain this to me?

Really elaborately decorated Christmas sweaters used to be a common gift back in the 80s and 90s.  From my perspective, it seemed the only people who wore them out in public were either preppy women or old women.  Or sometimes their husbands.   Cheesy  Although I confess I have an elaborately decorated Halloween sweater I wore every year!  Fast forward and the thrift shops and closets are full of these monstrosities.  Folks hold ugly Christmas sweater parties where it's an obligation to wear the worst one you can find.  Prizes and everything.

I had a hideous christmas sweater, and I took a pair of nail scissors to cut off the beads. I ended up with half a cup of seed beads!

HUZZAH!  I have located my camera again!  I'll get the cast redrawn tomorrow (the drawing disappears with wear and tear), take some pictures and get them up ASAP.  The cast comes off on Thursday morning!  WOOT! 

In crafty news - I'm on swap sabatical for quite a very long time I think.  I have a sweater to finish (I REALLY hope it fits him), an afghan to do for Christmas, a shawl for myself and golf club covers for a co-worker.  Plus the upcoming New Years Resolution to put things in an Etsy store.... again....  *sigh*  Anywho - I shall post sometime this week!

Yes, that's going to be my resolution too, though I might not use etsy. I have got to move beyond prices under photos in a FB album now though, because Facebook don't notify about comments properly any more, and people don't seem to understand what's for sale and I've made in the past, because of the lack of albums in the new photo set up. Ah, so many things to do! I need a chill pill - good thing I stocked up on Happy Pills!

cute, SilverMoon!

I've been knitting and frogging many little stocking ornaments over the past couple of days. I think I finally found one that I like! I don't have any leftover sock yarn in "traditional" Christmas colors, so this is made from a Crazy Zauberball.



Pattern can be found here.

Thanks Jilly!  I can't wait to get my knitting book as I want to make more scarves but I need new stitches to try...my nephew is a huge HP fan...I should use my knifty knitter to make him a scarf!  I love the two colors side by side like that...but I still have not found out which colors he wants!

I have managed to hang onto my UGLY Christmas sweater just for parties!  I always win some sort of prize...I might need to add more gunk to it to make it even better...so far, it has beads, silver yarns, ribbons, ornaments, and is way too big...PERFECT! Cheesy

I have some tiny bits of red glitter yarn that would make cute tiny stockings! Thanks for the pattern...
