Snow is falling, thus Christmas Knitting has begun

So here in Newfoundland, we've already seen our specs of snow and this makes me really excited because it justifies my excitement for Christmas. Everything about Christmas makes me absolutely giddy; snow, stockings, mittens, hot chocolate, baking (OMGBAKING) and snowmen.

Recently I've been approached to make some Christmas presents for people, which is fine and dandy, except I may have said yes to a few too many people. I think it's a general quality in knitters to just say "ok" to things, even though they probably don't have the time A: because they're nice people and B: because the idea of starting a new project is only equivalent to the excitement a child feels on Dec.25 at 4am.

In the next few days I plan on posting a bunch of pictures of things I'm ready to sell. I'm running out of space! There are only so many shoe boxes that a girl can fit in one closet!

I'm also going to quickly plug the movie "Hereafter". I watched it last night and I could not have been more impressed. It's been a really long time since I've seen a character driven movie like that and it really stood out as being one of the best. It also didn't help that it contained the most beautiful movement from any concerto ever written, Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto movement II. This piece makes me cry on the best of days, let alone when attached to the saddest story containing a little boy. Here it is: (I also suggest taking a listen to the rest of the piece for some awesome Russian music. in Soviet Russia, music plays you)
