The sun is shining, the laundry is done, the house is clean, I have two new knitting projects on the needles (one for “just me” and one for next week’s newsletters), a good book on Audible … and a blog post for this first non-holiday weekday of 2016. Here’s to a happy beginning for the new year!
But first, how about a quick look back at December, again through the lens of my daily photos.
Not as many twinkle lights as I expected (nor as many cocktails!), but it does look like December!
I’ve already shared most of the stories here, but here are two I haven’t. First, that’s my sister-in-law Lydia smiling with a cocktail on the 15th…wearing Stole 2.0.
|credit to my sister for the cocktails…and those adorable snowman glasses!
I knit most of that piece during November and early December. It gave me so much comfort during those dark days; thinking that the care and love I worked into those stitches can comfort her now makes me happy!
Then on December 26, I finished my 25th journal…and another knitting tale.
18 projects finished. Four from stash, eight for others and five samples (which will end up in my closet once the shop is through with them). Three of those projects (two sweaters and Tokyo) used yarn held double, so the nearly 13,000 yards is a little mis-leading. Still, though, it was a lot of knitting and I’m happy about that!
I’m way behind reading blogs, but Marc leaves for Asia in the morning and I’m planning to savor catching up on everything I missed last week. Can’t wait to read your stories! Hope your year is off to a great start!
