What It Takes

To get me to blog is apparently a toothless king.
That would be INBA who is the 2nd King in the Kindergarten Christmas Pageant next week. I knit him a pretend crown in Knit Picks Merino Style crocus. We hot glued some plastic gems on to make it really sparkly.I say toothless because last Friday he lost his first tooth and Monday the second. Oh, and please notice the fabulous frog sweater (olympics 2006) that fits him perfectly now and will inevitably be passed to a nephew next winter.
Back to the tooth for a moment.
The tooth fairy forgot to come pick up his tooth Friday night. I wasn't home to call her because I was at my knitting group at Borders. Borders was open until MIDNIGHT!! I got home later than usual and went straight to bed. No time to call the toothfairy. oops.
He was not happy.
Tooth fairy came Saturday night.

Here is my progress on my Jamaica Bear. I just need to seam and stuff. There is plenty of time for you to make one, too. I need it by January 5. It is quick and just uses left overs. Easy Peasy, as the kids say, and a good cause.

Mother of the Pea (with another in the pod) bag unfelted. It is a Bully Woolies bag, Santa Fe kit. I just need to felt it (today) and send it off for her birthday on Wednesday. My friends are all moving off into the next age demographic!! Yikes. 35-44!?!?!? I know plenty of nice people that are 40+, I just don't know if I am ready to be lumped in there, yet. I still feel 25. I do realize that I am soooo not in tune with a 25 year old in the year 2007. Still, admitting it is another story. Anyway, this is for her birthday- once I felt it.

Girl fix hat... for my niece for Christmas to go with this book.
I forget what the yarn was, but it is pink... and it is a wool/microfiber blend, so it is soft.
I got a little carried away with the i-cord, so it has two knots and I really like it.
It is many pinks, did I mention that? Girl fix.
The Noro Aurora scarf for 2nd Grade teacher. You can kinda see the glint of the metallic wraps. I am not really happy about parting with this scarf.
SPARKLY. Want to keep SPARKLY for myself.

SPARKLY party lace scarf for Kindergarten teacher.
But I am not so lacey, so SPARKLY may leave peacefully.

Otherwise, the holidays are steam rolling through. My rum balls are maturing (festering :) to be handed out, maybe next week. My shopping is pretty much complete, my knitting is nearly so. It is snowing again and I actually hope that the weather man is wrong and it won't turn to rain and warm up into the 40s this weekend. The boys have way too much fun for it to go away. And, it is so much more pretty to look at than the dead grey ground.

A friend and I had to scrape our jaws off the floor last spring when the toothless friend of a third friend told us that he got $5 for the first tooth and $20 for the second.

When I talked to mom, it turned out that she had been out of town (with the softball team, as was I), and the substitute Tooth Fairy (dad) forgot the first night and realize he had no smaller bills around midnight. Yikes! :)

I still love that frog sweater and he looks so handsome in it. :) Congrats on the teeth!
