Merry Christmas!

We at the Digit household hope that your Christmas was wonderful!  We have spent a very low-key day just enjoying the warmth of our home.  Even more warm as we got a light dusting of snow in the middle of the day.  

This month has absolutely flown by.  Between traveling and welcome visits from family members, I have been very lax in my postings.  I do have lots of new pics to share:  kids, knitting, travel, and Christmas.  I'll get those up soon - along with a few new videos. 

For now, hope you all are having a relaxed evening with friends and family.

The Flu Has Drained My Brain

Now considering that being the mother of a three- and five-year old has taken it's toll on my grey matter, this flu that I have has definitely put me down for the count.  Luckily, no one else in the house has caught this bug and I'm keeping my fingers tightly crossed that they don't.  

Aside from the flu annoyance, we've been enjoying our fall season.  We had a great outing at the Crystal Springs Rhododendren Garden

While we were there, we saw one of our favorite "residents" who I've named Punk Rock Duck.  All he needs is a Clash-London Calling t-shirt to complete the look.  He's definitely got a "been there, done that" way about him.  

On a more fiber related note (yarn, not food),  a few weeks ago I went to a PDX Knit Bloggers Knit-A-Thon that was big fun.  Knitting, snacking, and a bit of almond flavored sparkling wine.  I had a blast.  Got to see so many great projects by other members.  Two members even brought their spinning wheels and were spinning such beautiful yarns before our very eyes.  So much fun.  The icing on the cake was the yarn swap.  I brought some of my hand-dyed yarn

and I got this lovely wool in exchange. 

I think this will be the yarn that I will use to make the socks that I mentioned in a previous post for the Incredible Digit Girl.  They'll look bright and happy on her little feet.
