If you're not knitting, the terrorists win

(My mostly on-topic ramblings about knitting. And life in general. My life in specific.)

I'm a middle aged mother of 2 grown children and wife to a man who doesn't seem to mind my almost heroin-like yarn addiction. I spend my time writing, knitting, and generally stressing out.

FO: Advent Ornament #14

Sitting on the couch with my leg elevated at least gives me the opportunity to get some knitting done. At least with the yarn and needles I can reach.

So, here is the 14th Advent Ornament, the Christmas Light, by Kimberly Chapman. It's not really one of the Advent Garland Ornaments, but I am using it as one because I like it. I decided to do this one in gold, since red and green are really well represented on the garland so far.

It's a pretty quick pattern. I knit this one while watching an episode of Archer, On Demand. So, what is that? Twenty-three minutes? Not too bad.

Really, the only pain-in-the-ass thing about this pattern is the very beginning, that pointy part, where you cast on 3 stitches on 3 needles and knit one 3-stitch row. That's pretty awkward.

On the up side, it did provide me the opportunity to teach my cats some new swear words.

My dog was a little shocked, though.
