I can has a christmas tree! \o/ Wanted a real one. Got one that's a bit taller than person height but not much (it was classed as 5-6' and I am a horrible judge of exact heights) and nice and full and pretty.
There is a slight problem, though, that my collection of ornaments, almost all of which were acquired pre-pet, are, er, not the best to use given the current pet situation. (The cat would be okay as long as I kept the bottom foot or so free of possibly-breakable ornaments, but with a dog that has a very enthusiastic tail? yeahhhh not so much.)
On the other hand, I have plenty of yarn that's in reds and greens and whites. And I have a crochet hook. The obvious solution? Crochet myself some ornaments.
However, Firefox does not like me having fifty skajillion tabs open, so ... here, have a list!( links )
