It's almost 90 degrees outside, so naturally I'm reminded that Christmas is only six months, two weeks and two days away. So it's high time I start planning my Christmas to-make list (which creates a delightful yarn "to-buy" list). Inevitably, the list includes the sister, the man I knit for, and the roommate from Pittsburgh. Actually, I think I have two of the three ideas set already. Yay for planning. Double yay for shopping.
And as for me? I think I want books (for all my spare time....)
