I'm Back

I'm back! I spent as much time as I could with my sister and her family from Hawaii, over the Christmas Season. It was as much fun to spend time with them as it was to spend time with the family as a whole that we sometimes don't see enough of even though we live close by. Right after the New Year, I got the flu....talk about a great way to jump start a diet....

My Lizzy got new ice skates, so I wasted no time making a pair of bright wool socks for her to wear with them.

I love this Ann Norling Pattern. This one pattern has directions for socks in sock wt, sport wt, and worsted wt yarn. I used Brown Sheep yarn to make this pair.

We had a quiet New Year. I'm looking forward to my baby graduating from high school this year. I continue to fight the urge to start new projects before completing those lying about needing to be done, as well as fighting the battle of the buldge...Both things I will wrestle with the rest of my life.

Glad you had a lovely time with family.

Look at those socks, they are gorgeous. Wish I could knit!! I wanted to learn last year, and here we are with a new year maybe I will this time.

That little package you sent to AJ is adorable! Everything was so cute. Where did you get the hardware for the key chain?
