Of my holiday! And other things!

Firstly, it snowed in 2009, and I have proof. Granted, I was in Alabama, but it snowed nonetheless.

So picturesque!

I like it when stuff like this happens at SCA events. It looks perfect.

And then it snowed in Arkansas!

Quite a bit, actually, for Arkansas.

And so then there was this part when my brother got himself into a ditch and a guy tried to pull him out, slinging mud everywhere (the guy meant well), and here’s what the husband’s coat looked like:

He gets it back from the cleaners today (which is good, because it’s predicted that we’ll have snow again).

For Christmas, we make a cake and then sing happy birthday to the Baby Jesus (I was four. It seemed like it made sense, and we like doing it, so it continues). I iced the cake myself:

Eating cake, playing poker. You know. The usual way you celebrate the spirit of the holiday, right?

The Holy Family. I think we’ve only set Joseph on fire once.

I knit a hat for my dad. The pattern wanted the whole thing to be ribbed, but I ribbed only a little and added a decorative purl band. I like how it fits. He does, too. He didn’t take it off the whole time we were there.

My mom’s best friend likes earrings, and purple. She also has a good sense of humor. We made a fake bottom for the box we put her real earrings in and hid them under these monstrous things. She said she liked them a lot. I am suspicious.

My mom didn’t want me to take her picture, but it turned out very well. Isn’t she lovely? I think so.

And that was my holiday! I’m working on a hat for my brother. I gave him the ball of yarn wrapped in a box, with the promise that it would be a hat soon. I better get to that.

About HappyGoth

By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish. I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob. Therefore, knitters = angry mob.
