Happy New Year!

It's hard to believe it's 2007 already. Where does the time go? I hope everybody has a fabulous year, and that peace breaks out all over the world. A pretty big ambition but hey, dream BIG!

I'm not planning on making any resolutions just for the new year, I make them up as I go along. I stopped the once a year resolutions shortly after I decided that doesn't really work well for me. That was over 25 years ago. I do really like the Knit Fom Your Stash in 2007 KAL, but I won't be joining. At least officially. I am going to try to use my stash yarn whenever possible, but I am well aware that I would be making so many exceptions it would be ridiculous.

So far I have yarn for two more sweaters and some sock yarn that I want to use that are already on the list of things I really want to knit up. Not to mention the bootccamp sweater. Which is almost 2/3 done! I have the back done up to the point of the neck decrease. And I have the front ribbing done. Whoopie, 11 whole rows. I will be knitting the fronts at the same time instead of one at a time. That should be pretty interesting, since the cables are mirror images of each other.

Here at last, a picture of Megan's last year present. The true color is difficult for me to get a picture of, even outside. The bear is a little bit redder, and slightly darker.All of the pieces were knit quite a while ago, but I was procrastinating big time on the sewing up. I don't know why, I actually am a very good seamstress. The pattern was from Sirdar, as was the "Funky Fur". The fur color was Ruby, which I personally think would be a good name for this bear. But the bear is not mine to name. Perhaps Megan will post a comment when she decides on the bears name. Of course, she hasn't seen the bear in real life yet.

The bear is hanging around under the tree with presents for my son Mike, who will be home soon. The tree skirt was made by my Mom as a Christmas present the first year Bob and I were married. It's felt and sequins, not my normal style, but my tree would look very strange without this under it. And Leo the cat is behind the bear, you can only see his butt. He has been sleeping under the tree since we put it up. He is going to be fairly upset when we finally take it down.

  • LOL... more proof that Chianna (our Shiba dog) is almost a cat. After we opened the presents, thereby clearing off the tree skirt, she pawed it around to make herself a cozy bed and goes and sleeps there whenever she can. I think it seems safe and cozy, since it's covered and sortof hidden.
