Tower of Power

You're talking to the new Associate, Assistant, Local, Regional, District Commissioner Thingy (must look up my actual title) of the newest branch of the Canadian Pony Club! We have been in operation for about 3 weeks, and have 22 members. Lemme tell you, it isn't easy to find that many Manuals. I've found the odd copy in used bookstores locally, running between $15 and $20. (Wha???) They're good and cheap in the UK, but the shipping will get you.

Aside from late nights spent staring at Abe Books and feverishly calculating exchange rates, I've been getting my Christmas shopping out of the way and making difficult decisions like red sparkly tissue or white snowflake tissue. (White snowflake, thanks for asking.) Lots of the shipping is already done but I have a few long-distance packages still to dispatch.

What with the everything, I didn't do much Christmas knitting this year - a little, but I'll show you that in the new year.

What's everybody else up to?

I was totally going to vote for white snowflake.

What has everybody else been up to? Well now, partly because of your inspiration, I've been learning to knit -- no, learning to LIKE to knit. I've made a cap as a Christmas gift for a friend who saw a sample in a yarn store and said he wanted it, because it didn't look like a 62-year-old's cap. And an almost-done pair of socks for myself, and it's lovely lovely lovely, and I'm addicted, and thank you, Shannon.

Lizbon, you and I are as one.

Jeannette, FANTASTIC! Now if I die an untimely death I can rest easy knowing I was a force for good in this world.

LOL, Shan!
I am honored (or honoured, as the case may be) to be a force for good in your life!
