I started making some stockings out of a mohair sweater I found at the mall–not in a shop. It was abandoned in the bathroom. Am I a bad person for not giving it to lost-and-found? We can figure that out later. Anyways, I wasn’t thrilled with how the first stocking turned out, so I went to a thrift store in town and found a great kinda-teal-green tweed jacket…
And made it into an even greater tweed stocking…
And an “am Greatesten” (as the Germans would kinda say) tweed vest and matching bow tie for Peanut-Butter-Breath (Sorry about the poor quality of the picture. I’ve yet to master the art of taking photos of moving babies).

And Israel finally got everything he ever wanted for Christmas.
Whelp, Peter’s off plowing until Sunday during the Great Snowstorm of ’10. 40″ predicted is the last Peter heard. Who knows. According to the Frederick blog, we’re dealing with a TP index of 18.
Israel, mom and I have stocked the house with TP, diapers, food, and movies. I’ve gotten a few head coverings sewn for my sister-in-law Aneysa, and am about to write out some thank-you cards, birthday cards, and baby shower cards. Also gotta finish some baby sewing projects (lots of babies being born!!). I am determined not to waste this snowstorm just being lazy!
