So how is your holiday going? I have spent a good portion of it watching the “Little People, Big World” marathon and getting caught up with the movies on my TiVo so I’m feeling pretty relaxed, myself.  I’ve done quite a lot of knitting:



These are two of the three scarves I completed to mail off to Stephanie in the hopes she does another scarves for the homeless event with her church.  The green one I made on my knitting machine and crocheted the edges.  I didn’t mean the other one to be so frilly and girly but I did do a lot of stashbusting!

I also started another Clapotis with my 3 skeins of Recycled Silk, but I got frustrated at this point and frogged it.  I just started a feather and fan scarf with it that I’m liking much more.



And I have been working diligently on my Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick sweater. It is now way too heavy to carry around, so I don’t get much work done on it, but I have done the back and one of the sides.

And one last year end change, a new haircut! This is my hairdresser’s version of the Posh Spice haircut from a year or two ago, and I like it, but she does tend to go a bit crazy on the layers.


HAPPY 2009!

    I LOVE THE HAIR CUT!!!!!! I just finished a Clapotis scarf out of home spun the other day. I still need to finish sewing up Stink’s (my teen girl’s) Gigi sweater. I ended up getting so frustrated with all of the sewing on it. I have come to the conclusion that unless I can figure out a way to knit it in one piece, it will not be knit by me. LOL

    Happy 2009! Hair looks good, but I hear ya on the layers. And if you don’t blowdry them, you end up with spectacular bedhead… at least you do with my hair, maybe I’m just special that way.
