I am now focusing on Christmas. I got the tree up at my parent's house and my apartment. I have some presents bought but really need to get out and finish shopping. Plus I have cookies to bake. I am participating in my friend's cookie exchange and need to bake 5 dozen cookies by Thursday. I have been cleaning up and baking commences tonight! I am making Mexican Chocolate Snickerdoodle Cookies. I found the recipe on Pinterest and new I needed to make these for the exchange.
Otherwise, I am moving along toward Christmas but I had quite a scare yesterday. I am traveling to Southern California for an Alpha Phi Omega (my college service fraternity) Convention on December 26th.
|Me at a Leadership Training in 2007 for APO|
It indeed said November. I booked the flight in July and missed that I booked it for November instead of December. So last evening, I was on the phone with United trying to get my flight re-booked. I was originally told, that it was going to be a $500+ difference. I cannot afford that. I then talked to some people about it and called back. By this time, I was near tears and a gentleman operator answered the phone. I think he didn't want me to cry and worked with his supervisor to get my a flight that was only $77 dollars different. This was reasonable and I am so thankful. As a result, I was late for my haircut but at least I can get to Anaheim after Christmas.
So enough drama and onto the yarny goodness.
STV Spiffy Iffy Peresphone's Return! Socks
|Let's turn some heels!|
I finished all of my gift knitting so now I can pull out some things that have fallen into the WIP pit. I picked up my socks that I started for Sock the Vote and got to work last night. I had the heel flap done and turned the heel. I have to shift stitches around all over the place but I am back on track. I realized I miss read the gusset and have to jump down and remove some decreases but I love making the gusset so these should be done soon.
Well, that's it for this weekend, now onto the paper!
