I can’t believe this, Las Vegas has snow:

In other news, I have changed my browser to Mozilla Firefox, and I have to say, I really like it. I’m amazed at how much faster it is than IE. If you haven’t heard, there is a major security flaw in IE; I read on Yahoo! that if possible, you should change browsers ASAP, since Firefox (and other browsers) don’t have the same problems as IE does.

And in knitting news, I decided to do some surgery on my Bountiful Bohus. I didn’t like the neckline on it (too wide, not good for a winter sweater), so I ripped it back and after about the 132,574,079 time I successfully narrowed the neckline. Now I can get back to my purse and B’s sweater.

I’ll start with the last one since you probably were like “Yep, OK, ….huh?!”

Grandma’s Cardigan is getting on my last nerve. I had the sleeves ALL done, blocked, ready to join on. But when I went to attach them, they were too small. Grr. So I cast on stitches around the armhole, intending to work them from the armhole down, but it was going to be too much of a pain in the butt to do it that way.

Because it was just easier to start from scratch than fix them. At least the body is all done, otherwise I’d be seriously freaking out that I have to redo the sleeves with only 18 days left. I know a lot of knitters will work on a project on Christmas Eve night to finish in time to gift Christmas Day, but I am not one of those people. The more of a buffer zone I have, the better. With anything. I don’t like to be rushed.

It’s been snowing like crazy the past few days, including right now:

Which make the Christmas decorations look all the more festive (pardon the signage behind the tree):

I’m glad I decided to decorate this year. I haven’t for the past 2 years as kind of a boycott on Christmas since my Mom died, since it was her favorite time of year. But I think she’s happy I got over it and put up some pretty stuff…some of it used to be hers, too! The stocking is old…34 years old, to be exact. My great-grandma made it for me for my 1st Christmas. I love it.

And this is what I get for leaving my office door open a teeny tiny crack:

P.S. Awesome new Christmas album:
