Bah F@#$ing Humbug

I'll preface my Christmas loathing on the fact that I am in fact a Jewish person with friends and family that I think I still love that are all into Christmas and I respect that. But my winter holiday has come and gone and I played dreidel and I had latkes and I lit my candles (and got lit myself)... I got a tv. I got some aweome beyond belief kitchen supplies from my bff and enjoyed my Jew-dom. My little brother even brought me cookies.

On other notes during Chanukkah I decided to participate in the BSG groups selfish sweater cowl and cast on my very own Shalom Cardigan. I'm very proud of my first ever sweater. Regardless of how easy it is.

I was flying on it too, but that other pesky winter holiday that likes to vomit tacky all over my office and neighborhood and everyone really and I realized I had Karl's scarf to finish. I'm 1/4 done.

I also realized that this stack of yarn needs to be turned into 3 hats. Knitting will be done on lunch breaks.

*sigh* Stupid "Other" holiday.

Bah ! Frakking humbug!

All I want to be knitting are (rav links):  Encompass, Stockholm Scarf, Reunion Cowl (which I started - barely) and GAP-tastic cowl

BTW -- These large circle scarf cowls are my new all time obsession

Oi! I hope you had a great Festival of Lights! Mmmm ... latkes. As a gentile, I covet any Kosher food I can get when I visit my friends in New York.

Well, I'll wish you a happy Festivus and hope that you get your knitting done!

Chin up my friend....do not stress about holiday knitting. Accomplish what you can and be happy with yourself. Life is far to short to get that stressed.

I'm glad that you enjoyed the Festival of Lights and can't wait to see your finished Shalom Cardigan!

I can totally relate to your feelings about Christmas. I, too, share in the "Jew-dom."

Exciting about your Shalom Cardi. My first sweater for myself (actually, my first adult-sized sweater) was red too.
