Christmas Widgets

Lots of socks done. The felted booties take bloody forever to dry, so no picture yet (and they probably wouldn't fit on the scanner). But here's some pretty green socks:

It seems to be traditional to hate the commercialism of Christmas. I wonder if I'm the only person who actually likes getting Christmas presents (in both senses of the word). I like thinking "ooh, that's good for so and so!" and occasionally being right. I don't mind shopping for impossible people, and doing the best I can. I like seeing piles of brightly colored presents under the tree, even the years they were all for my brother - the infinite possibilities they might contain is still terribly appealing.

It's not about loot. It's not about getting. It's about giving, but also about being given to.
