rampant capitalism

right, so the holiday season is in full swing, and the insanity ensues on par. though i'm not much for sending holiday gifts or cards or anything along those lines, i've tried to cover a few of my bases. most of the bases, however, are still blatantly uncovered and will likely remain so for a while to come.

i've been working on knitting mostly, trying to figure out what projects to work on next. i've finished a pair of gloves for mom (yeah, she already knows about them and actually requested the fingerless gloves with the covering mitten bit). i had to modify the pattern quite extensively to do exactly what i wanted to do with it, and it was fun to work it all out. i'm also trying to finish up the sweater i've started for sis that's gone really quickly, but i have to run to town tomorrow (monday) to buy another skein of yarn! i can't believe i ran out of yarn--i even bought more than the pattern called for! i'll try to have a picture posted of it once i finish it. after that, i hope to finish up a couple other projects i'm working on.

eventually i'll also get some of my pictures from spain posted in my photo album here online, and i'll even get some of them printed out so i can put them in my scrapbook. until then, i'm just looking for work. it's not very exciting, and there's not many jobs available right now, but wish me luck all the same.

in the meantime, i hope everyone who reads this has a happy holiday season.
