This is my favorite Christmas movie!  And last weekend, I broke it out to start prepping for the season!

I know all of the words to the songs though I usually don’t sing along since I’m not very good, but they go over and over in my head…

 “I’m dreaming of a White Christmas….”

“Lord help the mister who comes between me and my sister.  Lord help the sister who comes between me and my man…”

“What do you with a General, when he stops being a General…”

Where do you think I could find a man like Bing Crosby….though maybe a little taller?

So my Christmas season has started with White Christmas.  I may not have decorations up.  But the songs are repeating in my head, and I got a couple of solid hours of knitting!

This is gradually becoming Kim HargreavesBreeze Coat.  I’m a little leery of long sweaters, since I am not sure they are all that flattering for me.  But as usual with me, the process is my favorite part and knitting it has been fun!

I am a fan of Kim Hargreaves’ designs, however, this is the first one I’ve actually tried to knit up.  I am getting used to some of her terminology and hope I am interpreting it correctly.  I am a little sketchy sometimes on the row repeats and combine that with my yarn substitution (that is not supposed to shrink like cotton), I am hoping the thing doesn’t turn out WAY too long!

I am off to the No Coast Craft-O-Rama today to continue getting myself in the Christmas spirit!
