It's been a while...

I'm sorry I have been MIA... I've been spending a lot of time with the family these days. I was lucky enough to get the week off from work. (Yay!) So my days have been spent getting things done around the house, hanging with the kids, knitting, playing Uno...

Christmas was great. This year it was just the four of us. Usually we have friends over for Christmas eve dinner but they couldn't make it this year, so we got to celebrate with them a little early, which was fun. We also had an early celebration with family members in Poughkeepsie. It was nice to stretch out Christmas like that... Santa was very good to me and I got many knitting gifts.

Yarn Themed Puzzle!
New books and Jumbo Ball Winder!

I also finished my dad's socks!

And I started a new, quick and easy/instant gratification project: a scarf for my sweet Sophia. She picked the yarn when we went to Webs back in November.

I can't believe 2012 is almost over. I have the usual New Year's Resolutions of losing weight and eating better and all that. But I also have a few knitting related ones:

- To knit a sweater for myself

- To knit something in intarsia

- To learn to knit two socks at once

- To knit something for my son, Tommy. I can't believe I haven't knit him anything yet!

I wish everyone much love and happiness in 2013. And lots of yarn and knitting too!


  1. Another winder?! Who got you that? Lol

  2. Hubster somehow found out I needed a bigger one. :)
