My Sheldon Cooper bobble head arrived! *happy dance* and at the moment I’m watching the episode where Sheldon plays the bongos!  It’s so funny 🙂

On another note, 2 days into my new job and I’m loving it.  The people are so nice and the place is very swanky 🙂  Been working on the scarf for my mother in law, it’s still not finished, but I really need to block it, it’s curling up and it’s beginning to bug me lol 
Got some green wool to knit a scarf for step-dad’s Chrismas, and all the circular needles I ordered on ebay arrived today, so I can’t wait to get cracking on some socks etc *big smiles*
I really want to buy some Sugar ‘n’ Cream Yarn to attempt knitting washing up cloths, and I was thinking of attempting some other wee accessories…..shall see how that goes.

Finally took some pictures of the second completed Christmas present…..

Really pleased with how this turned out, the cream/ivory ribbon looks lovely with the lilac hat, and the hand crocheted flowers attached to the  mittens just add an extra detail making the mittens less “babyish” for Kenzie who’s 18 months old and a “big girl” now, so she tells me 🙂 

Enjoying my last day of Garden Leave by knitting more of a diamond brocade scarf for my mother in law’s Christmas gift in a hot pink, and then I might start another one in a teal colour for my mam. 

Quite nervous about starting my new job tomorrow, but I suppose we’re all a little worried about new things deep down.  I was really touched this morning that 2 new job cards arrived in the post, one from my mam and stepdad with the note “go get them” – made me grin!  And one from my uncle and aunt, they’ve always made sure they send a card or text or phone when something happens, birthdays, wedding days, new jobs, passing driving tests, illness – they’re just lovely!

Oooh I have to share this picture….

It’s a box of knitted wonders! 🙂  various bits and pieces I’ve completed in there for giving as gifts, as well as more preemie bonnets for donating to the local hospital, as well as sending to Preemies UK.

So far this morning has consisted of Storage Wars, American Pickers, Tea and Knitting, not entirely a bad morning as far as I’m concerned.  Making the most of my penultimate lazy day, officially my Garden Leave finishes tomorrow and I can legally start my new job on Wednesday *happy dance*  An entire month of nothingness is driving me crazy!

Worked on some simple mittens with crochet flowers sewn on to them yesterday, need to remember to take pictures of them and post them later on.  At the moment, I’m working on a “diamond brocade” scarf as another Xmas Present, the list is doing well, Max’s snowflake and contrast set is done (just needs to be blocked etc), Kenzie’s mittens and ribbon detail hat are done.

Last week I splurged on new buttons for my stash *yipee* and some vintage looking luggage tags/gift tags for attaching to all the Xmas gifts – can’t wait!

Discovered a fantastic blog randomly last night One Sheepish Girl, it’s a lovely blog and so inspiring!  Definitely worth a read.

On an excited note, my Dr Sheldon Cooper bobble head has been dispatched!  Wooooohoooo means I can take him for my new desk this week *happy dance*
