Jack Frost Must Be On Vacation

'cause he sure has NOT made his presence known here in mid-Missouri.
65 degree F yesterday
Clear, blue skies
with a zillion contrails darting in every direction with destinations only to be dreamed about.

How do you like my newest coffee cup
Mr. GRRRR-Rinch

I love to watch this cartoon at least once during the Holidays.  
Sets my mood :*)


Oh, I have to tell you.  
I finished my first knitted project of 2012.
No Photo Yet
so you'll have to take my word for it.
a free download on Ravelry
The pattern is a Garter Stitch, Stockinette Stitch, Eyelet kinda shawl.
Such a fun time knitting this, couldn't put it down.

  1. Congrats to the winner! Had this ol heart thumping for a minute..Right name, wrong spelling:) Have a great weekend Gerry

  2. There's always a next time Vicki ! ! ! !

  3. Congratulations to the winner!

    It's warm here too. I am sitting here with all the windows open and in short sleeves. Not sure what this is going to mean come August....I may be in trouble!

  4. Tracy, we NEED a winter, don't we.
    We may not look forward to it,
    but we do need some precipitation
    either in the form of rain or snow
    ICE ! ! !

  5. Love, love, love your Grinch mug, Gerry! And we're having unseasonably warm temps here too. However, we have been getting lots of rain!

    Congratulations to Vikki...she's such a sweetie pie!

    Chat soon!



  6. Whoo- hoo! Gerry - how exciting!! Thank you SO much sweetie! I had a giggle that my name was pulled out of the Grinch mug - I'm a big fan too - love the Jim Carey version and wish I lived in Hoobsville!

    Thank you again so much Gerry! I'll be emailing ya!

    Hugs!!! Vikki xoxo

  7. Love your mug.
    Congratulations to Vikki on being the lucky winner of Gerry's lovely knitting.

  8. Congratulations to the Vikki. I LOVE the Grinch and even went to B&N to get a mug but they were gone 8^(. Maybe next year I'll find him. We watch the Jim Carey version every year. Love to see Dr. Suess's characters come to life. Jim is an excellent Grinch. He was also Scrooge in Disney's version of A Christmas Carol. Typecasting?

  9. Dianna, I must admit I've only watched the cartoon version. L♥ve the music.

  10. The Grinch says it all!!!!
    Congrats to the winner. One of these days....

  11. Happy news for Vicki!! I know just how she feels (having won your previous giveaway). As for your new mug, it's fabulous.

  12. Thank you so much for visiting my blog and leaving such a lovely comment!

    Congrats to Vicki for winning your beautiful shawl! Lucky gal!

    Love your mug - I hear you on the weather, it has been a much milder winter for us here in Ontario too.

  13.'s sendin' that lucky Vikki a great big old Ozark CONGRATULATIONS GIRL!!! What a fab win!

    Oh what a few days difference can make in our Missouri weather. Girl, it was a wonderful 57 yesterday then those winds set in. Brought us snow and ice last night and today we're in the teens in this holler bein' blown 'round by 30 MPH winds. I'm hangin' by the fireplace!!!

    God bless ya sweetie and have a cozy kinda day!!!

  14. Lucky lucky Vicki. I know she is one happy lady for winning this awesome giveaway.
    Gosh January is not even over with yet and you have already finished a project for the new year. Way to go. Can't wait to see a picture of it.
    I sure missed you while I was gone. It seems like I was gone for a month instead of a week. It was too hard of a trip for this ole grandma.
