Hello everyone! Christmas here was over in a flash, it seemed. The kids had a good time and they ate a surprising amount, considering they had a huge meal at their dad’s prior to heading over to my house. Sam put his hat on and did not take it off… unfortunately, I did not get a photo of it. There’s some brilliance, no?
It has been quiet this week at my house, welcome quiet! I have started some time of selfish knitting! I am starting my third round of “beehive” stitches on my Marie Antoinette Socks. Oh, I am in love! They are divine, and a fun knit. Anne, once again, has created an incredibly brilliant knit. If you have not check them out, do.
I have also been knitting on my “Logan River Wrap”. I am using the suggested yarn, Queensland Collection Kathmandu Aran – a blend of merino, silk, and cashmere. While, I love the brown – green is my “go to” shade. So, yes, I am knitting this up in a lovely medium green that has flecks of brown through out. Yeah, enough said. This stuff is yummy. I am almost through my first ball, making nice progress. I will also learn some new techniques in this knit – adding a border. Yes, that is right, have not done that yet. I will keep you posted as I begin the borders, so stay tuned!
Knit K-night was interesting this week. I had some apples that I really needed to use, so I made a big pan of apple crisp and carted that down to feed the masses! They all wolfed that down in short order!! And, it seems that the gifts they all knit were exceedingly well received. All in all, an interesting evening.
I believe I have a plan in place that will have me employed soon. A good transition for me. I am eager to get started, and although it will require some education, I have an appointment set for January 3 to start the journey. New Year, new career.
I am staying home for New Year’s Eve this year – my kids will be “floating” around – so, I had better stay put. But, on New Year’s Day – I am heading over to Lansing to visit Threadbear!! My goal will be to get there early in the morning and head home to watch the last half of the Citrus Bowl. Michigan plays Florida, it should be a good game!! Any of you Lansing knitters planning on being at Threadbear on Tuesday??? I’d love to see you all!
Stay tuned for some upcoming news on Blog365….
Have a great weekend all!
