Knitting Without Dog Hair Is Not an Option

Hi there - My name is Claudia. I live with my hubby and our two furry kids in Georgia, USA. Originally I am from Germany - southern belle from Bavaria replanted to the Southern US. I am very addicted to knitting - 4-5 projects going at the same time... What can I say...

Update Christmas Knitting

OK - I haven't given you any new stats lately...

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.):

24 completed
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!
