Does it Feel Like Christmas?

I'm not sure. This is the first Christmas I have ever been away from home. Christmas Eve is the biggest event in my family with upwards of 20-30 people, kids running around, tons of fish and grandparents usually asking the same questions. Christmas Day is recuperation day from the night before when I can fondle my new yarn and new chocolates I got stuffed in my stocking. This year I will probably be at a bar trying to score free drinks. Yes, I'm a bit down about this, but I have lots of others here to get me through.

FINALLY I have finished the Just Like a Peasant Cap. I ran out of yarn ages ago and was able to score some from Purl right before leaving the Big Apple.

Made with gorgeous Malabrigo Merino Worsted in Azul Bolita. Yum! I have a bunch extra (almost 100 yds). What should I make with it?

Other knitting news/suggestions - a good sock pattern for a guy in a black semi-solid? Yes, I've poked around on ravelry but wasn't 100%. Suggestions?

And Christmas in Vail... it's rather pretty. Lots more pictures to come (once I find the cable that connects my adorable camera to my sexy MacBook).

Apologies for the crude "I took these with my iPhone" pictures.

P.S. Leave a comment or two in between eggnog partakings. That will be my Christmas present.

Welcome to Vail, CO!

Where have I been? Well, here's a recap:

- my laptop crashed
- I quit my job
- I moved to Colorado
- I am now working as a ski instructor at Vail (mountain), CO

So that should bring y'all up to speed. No pictures of knitting quite yet since... I have been QUITE the slacker. Instead, here is a few of my office. My view. What I see everyday (instead of excel spreadsheets.)

What does your office look like?
