Things are extremely hectic for everyone this time of year, and it is no different for me. Thanksgiving dinners, birthdays, Christmas.....I have had one heck of a year filled with death, separation from my husband (after 8 months, we decided to try and work things out), and losing all of my girlie parts...I for one will be extremely happy to see then end of 2008!
On the bright side, I have been one knitting fool! I have gotten so much knitting accomplished and that makes me one happy woman! I have mastered knitting two socks on two circular needles (wooo-hooo!), gotten two more pairs of socks made, a hand-towel that started out as a dishcloth from this pattern, but I modified by lengthening it, adding some stripes and some eyelet lace stitches (a birthday present for a friend who's bathroom is decorated with frogs), a hat from this pattern, made using Stylecraft Carousel Double Knitting yarn in the Lilac Hue colorway. I loved it so much, that I am almost done with another one using I Love This Yarn in Pink for my best friend. I am also working on this hooded scarf by Lion Brand in Caron Simply Soft Eco in Lilac Bud for my mom....and I still have so much more to do!
Hopefully I will be getting a new camera this week and if I do I'll be sure to post pics.
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
