I haven't met them yet... but in my heart, I already love them. Not because I'm the godmother of one of trips... but because I love the family they have been blessed to be a part of. They have taught me so much... patience, perseverance, possibilities...
Now to use those very traits as I finish up the rest of my Christmas knitting... the trips may be done but still need to work on the treasures for my three great-nephews! Must remember that good things come in three's!!! Must. Knit. Faster.

...which really isn't all that hard for me... squirrel! Dang, saw new yarn and well, you know how it goes. New yarn+new projects=continued un-monogamous knitting. Happily, the slouchy tam got done before the new yarn arrived. Sadly, the new yarn arrived before I got the the teddy bears started for my three lads!
So what sidetracked me? Sock yarn called Time Traveller and I knew I had to make me some Doctor Who socks! Really... who wouldn't for that matter! I will console myself with the fact that I have the yarn for the teddy bears safely tucked away... that was another squirrel moment when I decided to make these little treasures. Looked through a knitter mag and there they were. Sweet Shelley enabled me by lending her mag for the cause. I had get a better handle on all these "oh look, shiny" moments or I'll never get anything done in time for Christmas. Wait, I never attached a completion year to the Christmas bear knitting...
