you'd better not pout!

santa claus is comin' to town... in one week!
or so I kept telling lollipop as I tried to photograph her for this years Christmas card. She was so bored with the whole process after 5 minutes. She tried really hard not to smile because she said "real rock stars don't smile, they just try to look cool."
After 20 minutes of begging, pleading, and bargaining (she gets to choose next years theme, WATCH OUT! she may have us all dress up in KISS gear!) we finally got a "cutesy" one of her to send to the relatives who see her once a year. this isn't it, but she wanted me to post this one instead, cuz it's cooler!

I hope to post a lot of finished knitting projects in the next week but so far I have this:
christmas works in progress invading my desk
an almost finished scarf for my dad
oh!, and some beautiful, squishy, colorful, yarn from pancake and lulu

Ho! Ho! Ho!

It's raining outside and there is nothing more I'd like to do than cuddle up on the couch and get started on some of this sock yarn. Instead I'll be leaving for work in about 20 minutes braving the commute ,which by the way, didn't work so well for me last night. I probably won't get a chance to play with this yarn until months end since I am still trying to get some Christmas presents finished. So I figured if I couldn't knit it, I may as well take a picture of it as a sort of motivational tool to get those Christmas goodies done. Can't you just here it calling - PLAY WITH ME!
