Toto IV

Apparently, I cannot stop knitting these! There are only 21 of these shown in Ravelry and 4 of them are mine. Why aren't you all knitting Toto, too?

Toto IV

This is (probably) the last one before Christmas.

Today was a non-typical day. We had our Holiday Luncheon at work, so I got up at 6:00 a.m. to start the Crockpot Creamed Corn. (Combine 2 lb. frozen corn, 8 oz cream cheese, 1/2 stick butter, 1/4 c. heavy cream or half-and-half, 3 T. sugar, and a little salt and pepper in your crockpot, and cook on low for 3 to 4 hours, stirring it every hour or so.) Then I watched a little news, where I heard that the parents of a co-worker were involved in an accident which totaled the 2008 Saturn Vue (the same car I drive, except 4 years newer) they've had for about 2 weeks. They're fine, but it was odd to hear about it on TV. And, finally, while washing my face, I managed to stab my upper lip, right there at the top of the bow, with a finger nail, and it bled like crazy! I now have a really stupid looking scab there -- it's so stupid looking that I tried to take a picture of it, but it really doesn't look like much in the photos.

All of this before 7:30 a.m.! And how was your day?

YOu're a trendsetter ;-) Give it time to catch on.

Maybe it's like bibs - you need to model them on a cat to really get them to catch on.

I feel tired just reading about your morning!

Um, I'm not knitting Toto because I promised I'd get this lace shawl knit by the end of the month?
Because I've now promised a scarf by Xmas?
Because they look like they take big honking needles, and those hurt my hands??

I should knit some since I burned my hand taking something out of the oven tonight! The cream corn sounds good!

Obviously we are related because I often do stupid things like that. I poked myself so hard in the eyebrow with my tweezers the other day that I had a bruise.

I'm still just all thrilled to be back at TNT - every day is wild because I spend half of it going, "Oh! I work here again! Yay!"

People keep telling me to tell you Merry Christmas/happy holidays, by the way - Linda L., of course, Ellen, Aggie, Ken... You are obviously missed by all (and by me, too!). :)

I knit a Toto for my MIL and it came out kind of small. I just checked out the Ravelry page and it looks like I'm not the only one with this problem. Oh well, at least it's cute.
