Dead moose, dead moose....

blog-photos-075 On my last trip to the Goodwill, I got Wallace this adorable little stuffed moose.  It has a festive little holiday scarf on it.  Since it's entrance into our home, Wallace had proceeded to make it his new favorite toy by first ripping out it's eyes and then pulling Moosey's head stuffing out through his eye-holes.  I only hope that Wallace does not decide to someday make Nick or I his favorite toy.  What a way to go...

I've been busy knitting the last few days.  So what else is new, right?  I finished the sweater for mom last night.  It is the Frontier Blues Jacket from Knitscene Magazine and designed by Wendy Bernard.  Here is a picture of it pre-blocking (the picture isn't that nice and the color looks all funky, my apologies):

I'm looking forward to giving this to her.  It's pretty cute on, I hope she likes it.

In other news it's been snowing like crazy here.  Well, it snowed a couple days ago and there is more on the forecast for tomorrow.  After two days of sunshine, our front yard still looks like this:

Lastly, amidst all of my frantic knitting, I found time to make our Christmas cards this year.  I got the idea from Angry Chicken when she posted about this awesome stamp set she picked up at Michaels.  I know it's very Martha Stewart of me (ironically, these stamps are Martha's brand) but I grew up doing this stuff with my mom.  It's taken a while for me to get back into it.  I'm excited to send these out.  I had fun making them.  Here's a preview...

Anyway, back to my knitting....
