All freaked out!

This is my last post before leaving tomorrow to spend the holidays with my family. I'm all freaked out!. I haven't packed (my flight leaves in about 17 hrs, that's plenty of time, right?) and I didn't finish knitting all the presents. I still need to pick out my "travel project" and I have 2 movies from the library that I haven't watched, 1408 and Premonition.
At least I managed to finish the bear booties from 50 Baby Booties to Knit, right? This are for one of DH's coworker. She's pregnant (thank god! 'cause it would be weird to give her baby booties if she wasn't) and we were supposed to take her out for drinks as a thank you for helping DH with some work...but now she can't drink, so booties it is!
The pattern is pretty straight forward, all the mistakes I made were my fault. The yarn is what I had left from another pair that I made 2 years ago for my godson, I think it's Dale of Norway's Baby Ull, but I'm not 100% sure. I would had like them to be a little more symmetrical, but I can deal with it. Aren't they cute?

Este es mi ultimo post antes de irme a pasar la fiestas dicembrinas con mi familia. Ando toda vuelta loca! Me falta empacar, no termine de tejer los regalos de navidad, no he escogido el proyecto que me quiero llevar para el camino y quiero ver 2 pelicuals que saque de la biblioteca.
Al menos acabe estas botitas. Son para una compañera del trabajo de mi esposo, como agradecimiento por ayudarle con un trabajo. Esta es la segunda vez que las tejo, la primera fueron para mi ahijado. El estambre es el mismo, ya hace tanto tiempo que lo compre que no recuerdo el nombre, creo que es este. Me hubiera gustado que quedaran mas simetricas, pero ahorita ya me doy por bien servida al haberlas acabado. A poco no estan muy monas?

Nos vemos en Juarez!

I'm no stranger to snow or cold weather, but something tells me (OK everybody keeps telling me) that Minnesota winters are different. It's being snowing here and by the looks of it, Minnesotans will have a white Christmas, not me, I'll be south of the border telling people how it's not really cold there, how they would be freezing their traseros off in Minneapolis.

Thankfully its' been cold , but I haven't been cold...could it be because I spent most of my days indoors? Anyways, I'm pretty sure I'll be knitting lots of socks, mittens and scarves to keep ourselves warm and toasty. I'm actually looking forward to knitting for myself, right now it's all about the Christmas presents and Locapalooza. I really doubt that I'll be able to knit everyone a present, we'll see.

One thing that I have noticed is the absence of snowmen, I guess people are so used to the snow that they don't play with it, and they must be used to driving in the snow, because it takes more than 24 hrs to start plowing the streets, at least in my neighborhood.

And for those who are keeping track, I knitted 3 more Christmas presents, yey!
