Update Christmas Knitting
Here is the latest update on the Christmas gift list (I actually have a spreadsheet - makes the math easier and will let me keep track of when I sent what, etc.):
2 under way
2 more, not yet started
So, I am doing pretty good, I'd say. Deadline for the Germans is Thanksgiving weekend. I am very confident that I will be able to wrap everything and send a big box to my Mom to hide until December 24 - which is the day in Germany when you open your gifts.
And I started my new job today. When I got to the new office this morning, I found a desk ready for me with a running PC and a big Bavarian flag from my boss as a welcome present. They have free Starbucks coffee all morning and I actually got to join everybody for their Thanksgiving luncheon. A great opportunity to meet everyone and socialize. A very interesting crowd of people. More soon!
