A new year

You know what is the best thing about a new year... it is like a fresh start. I know it is just any other day, but it feels like a new beginning. Normally I don't do a list of things for my new year, but this year I did. I felt like maybe what I needed was a "To Do list" a way to stay focused. And word(s) for the new year... this year: Unconditional Love and Gratitude. Unconditional gratitude... taking all the things in your life and just being grateful for them, even the crappy things, they are the best lessons.

Happy New Year!

Just because...

Just a couple of the projects I have been working on since my last yarn along. I have since finished the blue adult size Gnome hat, also made a child sized one, a couple Soulemama favorite hats, two pairs of socks, a cowl, fingerless mitts, and a scarf.
I have just cast on another pair of fingerless mitts and a pair of baby socks.And waiting to be knit is 3 pairs of fingerless mitts, and another warm wooly hat. Phew, then I think I will be done with the holiday knitting!

Keep Calm and Craft On

Some of the many crafts going on: beewax candle rolling and me once again pulling out the fabric for Nuala's quilt and seeing what I want to do about it. I am thinking it may have to wait until after Christmas and actually become a birthday quilt. I ordered a couple more fabrics in pink to add a bit to the mix of white, green, and blue. We shall see.

Wow, we have been so busy, but in a good way (well, most of the time). Can I just say having a three year old around makes the holidays so amazingly awesome.

Gratitude Sunday

Right now, I am so grateful that we have enough. Enough time, enough money, enough togetherness, enough love.
Over the past month things have gotten a bit nutty, but I feel that life is once again falling into place, perfection!

Holiday knitting is in full swing! Since this picture was taken I have turned the heel and am now working on the foot of sock #2. They are going to be some cozy socks! I'm sorta, kinda, not wanting to give them away. LOL
I have been reading my book on breastfeeding and also reading Jurassic Park, and when I am knitting I am watching silly ABC family holiday movies. Nothing beats a good sap fest, that is for sure.
After these socks are done I am planning on starting sock set #3 and also casting on a pair of fingerless mitts. I have to get busy with the knitting, so much to knit so few days left!!
