Julie asked for it. :P Well it's not a song, but it's something. *L*
~ Twas An Amazon Christmas ~
Less than a month before Christmas and all through the land people were freaking out, even the cat. (The mouse was dead because the cat thinks having mice in the house is gross. I agree with the cat.)
The socks were being knitted by the knitters with care, in the hopes that everything would be complete by the time Knitty Gritty was aired. (or filmed ya know, whatever. *waves at Cookie @ Stephanie*)
And I in my triumph having avoided a fight at the malls was just settling down to wrap it all up. For an Amazon Christmas was making things bright. With a click of a mouse (not the dead ones) and the plink of the credit cards all was alright. (well it was okay. I can still be grumpy about the holidays even if I am listening to Johnny Mathis and Andy Williams non stop. I’m tricksy that way. :P)
But then what noise should I suddenly hear, the groan and moan of a Zombie coming to visit my dear. It was George the Christmas Zombie surrounded by gifts! He only had a head, arms and torso, the rest who knows where and his skin was creepy crawly like maggots doing swan lake. (nasty.)
No children were heard to scream in the beds, why one would assume they were all quite dead. The truth you see is that no children were about, because Otter doesn’t like them around anymore more than the mouse! (heh. You thought I’d be sweet or kill people and I’m just not today. Nyah Nyah!)
Next to George was the cat very full from the mouse, if she keeps eating this way she’ll be as big as the house. (not really, she's just fluffy)
The presents wrapped in festive snowman wrap were waiting to be mailed to friends and family… who would proclaim upon opening, “Oh Lookie, More Crap!”.
Yes, it’s an Amazon Christmas this year. The buying of love will never be easier. But take caution friends, and use your damn brains. (unless the zombie got to it already) Its phishing season for scammers, so never give your credit card number to weirdos in email. (people can be such assholes this time of year… hell everyday of the year)
With everything wrapped and mailed on its way it became a happy time for Otter to just knit and play. It’s an Amazon Christmas and you know what that means, a knit book or two should arrive any day. Making Christmas less painful for all who are near. (But mainly me. Woot! Charted Knitting Designs by Barbara Walker!)
So Merry Wintertime Holiday Shopping Season to All and to All a Zombie Fun Night!
This is George and TKK last Christmas. :D
Cute aren't they. :P
And now for another completed Dulaan Hat. It's my third completed hat. I love hats. Can't stop knitting hats...
Here's George looking fairly normal in the hat.
He looks startled here because of the way the hat's sticking up. *L*
Top of Hat
It's just a simple roll bring hat. Just made a big stockinette tube, in stripes and decreased when I thought it was long enough.
I finally made a pom pom. It's cuter than I thought it would be. Dave said something about my last hat needing balls (well ball) so I did it for this one. I think I'll go back and add balls to the last one too. :P
I need to get some white fleece to line it with.
I'm going to use this Dulaan Hat as my George Holiday Topper this year. I have a lot of wrapping to finish up this week. Plus packing and mailing... and the a different kind of packing. I'm not really sure when I'll have time to decorate George actually. I want to do some serious dusting first.
I'm pretty much done with my Holiday shopping. Got a few things on their way in the mail. It's good to be done early. Even if it feels late. My big holiday get together is in just a few weeks so I'm pushing it close on that. o.0 Where'd the time go.
