So, it is 2012. A brand new year. We had some great times last year, a high being our trip to Italy. Last year sort of ended on a not so great note with my hysterectomy. But the surgery was a success and I will be heading back to work in just a few short days, so that is positive. Here is to hoping for a great year with lots of great experiences and friendships and yarn.
Some of you are probably thinking, what happened to the sweater? I did promise to post pictures after I sewed on the buttons, which I finally did today. The shots are kind of grainy, but, they will do for the time being, I guess. At this time of day, it was only raining, but currently it is snowing and blowing and they have forecast 3-6 inches of the white fluffy stuff. Bleh! I love this sweater and I am positive I will get a ton of use out of it. I plan on wearing it my first day back to work. Can you tell I am growing out my bangs? (The bobby pin is the hint) Not a fun project, but I am going to try to stick with it. Wish me luck as I am not the most patient person in the whole wide world.
Still working away on the socks, I turned the heel last night just before bed at 10 pm (no I did not stay up to watch the ball drop) and I got a little bit of knitting in today. I think I can finish this pair up tomorrow. I would like to make a pair of socks for my mom as I think she would be a great recipient and would wear them a lot. I still can't believe I never tried to make socks before. I think I was always freaked out by the skinny yarn and dinky little stitches that would take forever. Not like a sweater doesn't take a month to complete.....I was wrong. I like socks very much.
