I thought I would get one more post in before the new year. Both my mom and Granny have been asking…I guess I don’t feel like I have many knitterly things to say as the construction overwhelms life. Of course, that has finally settled down but round 2 could begin mid-February but there are issues…another post.
Christmas was pretty low key. We spent the Eve with Kevin’s family at his sister’s house. Owen did really well this year and we were all able to enjoy ourselves. Christmas morning was quiet with just the kids and the afternoon at my sister’s–a Christmas surprise as we have not been speaking with her husband for quite some time. There were very few knitterly gifts–Ann Budd’s book and a lovely Elizabeth Austen bag from Granny. I had been eyeing it for a while but love my plastic bags! Kevin and I also treated ourselves to new dishes and more utensils! We have luxury room in the new cabinets.
Kevin has been home for nearly 2 weeks between vacation and the transit strike. It has been nice having him around. I think I could even get used to it but it is not to be so. He leaves for San Diego on Monday for a week long business trip. I have a couple of gifts to finish up and then I hope to get back to my knitting! St. Brigid calls…
In fact–Jody has decided on a new yarn–a surprising but lovely choice! Jody also gave a nice pictorial on the triple increase. Felicia plans to show hers a little more attention this new year too. Send me your updates and I will post them. If you have decided to knit along–let me know and I will add you to the list.
I wish you all and bright, happy and wonderful New Year!
