I've Got Those Christmas Feelings

 I've been watching The British Baking Show on Netflix. It's so fun to watch the bakers pull out the stops and produce such sweet treats.  I baked cinnamon rolls for dinner the other night (not just for us) and I used the frozen kind.  Cheater!  Not quite a star baker!

I finished two things!  This shawl/neck scarf thing.  It's kinda wonky so I must have made some mistakes.  Oh well!  It's done!
 I MAY have a bit of a wool hoarding problem.  Do you think so?
 This little sweater turned VEST is my next finish.  I am adding the rib to the armholes but I am waiting because I have been knitting too much and have knitting related aches again.
 It's hard being a teenager.  It's exhausting, it seems. 
 Here's Samantha's sweater.  I hope it's not too small.  I tried to stretch the sleeves.  Kids grow so fast and grannies are slow knitters!  Well, this granny is. 
 A cute guy says, "Hello, Beautiful!"
 I really should hide all of my knitting, so I am not tempted to knit.  It's hard.  
 I'm still loving looking at my gnomes on the red shelf.  My sister gave me most of the gnomes.  We give each other gnomes every now and then.  Our husbands are not gnome lovers, however.  
 I'm planning a knitty Christmas tree.  We'll see what I come up with.  I often get the Christmas feelings right before Thanksgiving.  I often think I should resist them, but maybe I'll capitalize on the happy anticipation because it might go away when I really need to feel all the holiday buzz buzz. What do you think?
 It's been cold for November.  I was out walking today and I tried to remind myself to look up.  I tend to forget my sunglasses and look down at the sidewalk instead of looking at the gorgeous scenery!  

I keep thinking about advent and the baby Jesus.  I want to memorize this:
Philippians 2:5-11
"Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus: 
Who being in very nature God,
did not consider equality with God something to be grasped,
but made himself nothing,
taking the very nature of a servant,
being made in human likeness.
And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself
and became obedient to death - 
even death on a cross!
Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father."

This is TRUTH.  I promise you.

Thank you for popping in, kind visitor.
