There's a ghost in the machine and it is getting pretty creative! The last things I looked for on Amazon were old musicals on DVD like Fiddler on the Roof and Kismet. Maybe they think I need to listen to other things?

Demonstration at Saint John's University

St John's and Saint Ben's students in Minnesota held coordinating demonstrations on campus today to try and improve relations between disenfranchised members of the community and the rest of the community. It was peaceful, friendly and  a good step forward. (I didn't stay for the whole thing because I have cuaght a terrible cold and it was miserably frigid outside, but here are a couple of pictures.)  I applaud their inclusivity!

The pattern is Herbert Niebling's Schneestern (but done in half round instead of the round. I'm using Qiviut from Windy Valley Farm.

Slippers finished

So I managed to get rid of one ball (with a week's worth of procrastination and a bit of knitting... whew... this will be even harder than I thought.

Anyway, here are some slippers that I have made:

I kind of like them without the cuff - maybe I'll do them again and simply extend the cuff that is already there.

This is my Amaryllis - when I potted it. It has a little green tongue now, but I don't have a picture yet.

Don't know what got into me today. I hate holiday fuss, but I ran into this box in the basement and the next thing I knew....
