So much to tell, so little time.

I hope everyone had a great holiday! Ours was fantastic!!! We spent lots of time with our families and got to take in two amazing rock and roll shows. See here and here. One of my favorite pictures is of Coen in his protective ear gear rockin' out!! Note that the onesie says "future rock star".

I got some great knitting gadgets as well! The two annbudd books I had been coveting as well as a BALL WINDER!! WOO HOO!!! Who knew winding yarn into balls would be so much fun?!?!

I didn't get as much knitting done as I would have liked. I am half finished with the front of Cherie. But I have sad news to report on my jaywalkers. Imagine if you will a sock ,a sock with only an inch or so to go til you start the toe decreases. A sock with a very distinctive stitch pattern that includes double decreases. This is a beautiful sock. You step back to admire your work. It is then that you notice (to your HORROR) that about 3 inches back you have dropped a stitch. Now this isn't a reason to panic until you notice it is a stitch that is right next to the double decrease. Now, maybe a better knitter than I could have fixed it but alas I had to rip it back. So I did not finish a jaywalker sock in 05 as I would have liked. BUT... I still have 12 more hours to live that dream!

MUST, COMPLETE A SOCK!

In much happier knitting news got my yarn for angelica!! I love the color. It was supposed to be "dapple grey" but it turned out to have a lovely pale pink streak. I can't wait to see how it knits up!! The hip knits silk is so soft and a really interesting texture!

I hope everyone has a really safe & wonderful New years eve!!

Cool yarn! Have a nice time tonight!
 
So sad about your Jaywalkers! I don't think I could've fixed them, either. That yarn is spectacular - looks like it will be luscious to knit.

Happy New Year to you and yours!
 
Happy New Year!

So sorry about the jaywalkers! But the yarn is really pretty and you have a ball winder now!! (when I got mine I wound EVERY STRAND of yarn in my stash that day. So fun!!)
 
The yarn is spectacular & yes Lori I am obsessed with ball winding! Who would have thought?
 
BRAVO and two thumbs up for putting ear protection on your little one!! I am a hearing healthcare professional and I wish more people would think like you!
