i imagine there's lots of sock, scarf, and hat knitting going on for fathers this christmas, but i'm cross stitching my dad something for his office! mom and i sometimes refer to him as a drama queen ... we're bad. and we know we're bad. and when i saw this dolly mamas kit by janlynn, i had to buy! i have not cross stitched in years. i don't have time for cross stitch, but ... i will make time for cross stitch.

also, while out & about today, armed with many coupons, i ran across a couple of books ...


i got each with a 50% coupon. can't beat that! i've had my eye on the _knit 2 together_ for some time, but the crochet book was new to me, and demonstrated techniques i hadn't seen before.

but, i am being good tonight, and working on the commissioned knitted stockings ... though i so badly want to crochet something ....

It's cross stitching fun? I learned in the 4th grade and though I don't do it much anymore, sometimes I wish I could do something else other than knitting. Cross stitch would be the hobby for me if I wasn't a crazed knitter.
