Here is to you and yours wishing you had a happy holiday season and a very merry New Year. Can anyone else believe it is 2008? It has been quite a year. I have met so many wonderful bloggers/knitters and I hope that as our blogs grow so will our friendships.
2008 will be bringing lots of changes for myself and my husband, but we are up for the challenge and looking forward to what the future holds.
Now I would like to warn you that this post may be a bit long so if you want to skip the reading and just look at the pictures I completely understand.
Since it has been over a month since my last post I shall bring you up to speed on what I have been doing. WORK, WORK, WORK, more WORK, and oh yeah, WORK. And I know that we are technically past Christmas I wanted to show you our holiday decor. I managed to squeeze it in on my 1 day off before the craziness began. The picture to the left is how I got our tree home. Last year at around the same time I used my bicycle and this year due to snow, my grocery cart made do. To the right you will see our tree in its full decorated glory.
I did not make my Christmas knitting quota and I have come to terms with that. I did however manage to fit a few knitted items into my busy schedule. For my SIL/BIL I made some pot holders and a little dish scrubber. For my husband's Aunt, a bath scrub, for a few knitterly friends some fun leaf pins, and lastly a pot holder, and dish scrubber for a friend, and a hat for her boyfriend (and yes it was another coronet - I can't seem to stop myself).
The weather here in Boston has been a lot of snow as of late and our car decided to play hide and seek with the other cars. Can you see our Honda? She is in the left bottom corner.... This game began after our second dumping of snow. And this photo was taken only in the middle. We ended up having 2 feet accumulated after both snows. Believe it or not this is not the most snow that we have ever seen. I know some of you out there are thinking, this girl is crazy that amount of snow is nothing, but coming from Portland, Oregon - this amount of snow is something for us anyway.
For Christmas my mom knit us beautiful scarf and hat sets. My set is made out of Noro Kureyon. And Jason's is in Patons SWS (which by the way I have never used, but after seeing it and feeling it I am now officially a fan and in love with the feel and look).
Happy Knitting to all and to all a good night. I do hope that work will not interfere with my life of blogging and knitting again for some time. It has been very hard to be away, but I am back and I do hope to be getting some serious knitting done. Perhaps I should start fitting in Christmas gifts now for next year. Then maybe I just might be able to finish for the holidays. LOL
