The past few weeks have been busy; between working outside in 12 degree weather, getting sick, and all the Christmas prep, I have hardly found time to knit, let alone blog. Never fear though! Now that the holidays are over, I have plenty of time for knitting and spinning.
my knitting group had our Christmas get together the weekend before Christmas- complete with spinning, yarn winding, and plenty of drinking and eating (while enjoying Disney classics). We are probably the most mature knitting group around. yeah…
Christmas with my family is always enjoyable, and this year was no different. Our Christmas Eve dinner of Pirogi’s, shrimp, and salad was as delicous as ever. The pirogi’s are made from scratch that day, and are stuffed with sauteed sauerkraut, bacon and mushrooms.
Christmas morning was wonderful as well- the two recipients of handknit gifts weren’t here, so I have a few more days to work on those. (I will finish 3 mitts and a sock in 3 days. It’s possible).
I did however receive a few wonderful items for Gertrude- a jumbo flyer and bobbin, and a Niddy Noddy. Other awesome gifts included a spice rack, season 4 of Doctor Who, a Dalek phone charm, Star Trek, and some awesome items from my Alma Mater.
I have also made a mini-resolution for my knitting- no casting on new projects for myself until all my WIP’s are complete. I currently have 9 WIP’s that I can think of off the top of my head- here’s hoping that I get cracking, because I have so many new projects I want to cast on!
What is your New Years knitting resolution?
