And voila, the first sock is done! Nearly. I still have to weave in all the ends, but the first being done means the roadmap for the second is laid out. I don’t know that I am going to cast on for that tonight… we’ll see. I have to get through this first, ha ha.
It’s been a good day, though. I woke up earlier than I normally do on a weekend, though not as early as Z and the girls did. I was ‘mean’ and made them wait until closer to nine to open things, but once the melee was entered… *chuckles* Littlerbit managed to open one of my presents on the sly in the midst of trying to prevent her from opening other-other people’s presents, but no harm done in the end. The girls liked what they received from us, and later in the day from their grandparents.
We also had our Christmas dinner there, which was lovely. Otherwise, I spent my time curled up in an armchair trying to juggle knitting and gaming, because yanno, I’m me. Obviously, I managed on the knitting front! I continue to fart around in Tropico 5, though I’ve dropped off into sandbox mode ’cause I was being pwned by the Black Pearl mission and needed a break. I had a laugh, in that I was so annoyed I turned the game off… and then turned it right back on. Z laughed at me, but he also understood my pain as a fellow gamer.
