Well, the new year snuck up on me. I can't believe it's already 2010. Christmas was a tad crazy what with the in-laws staying with us and the whole thing about the roof rat. The in-laws have returned to their water-less home and we are certified rat-free and our roof has been rat-proofed.
I was spoiled rotten at Christmas. I got all my favourite things - a Christmas red Haws watering can, lots of books, Body Shop soap, some alpaca/bamboo yarn (from an alpaca farm near my in-laws), a skein of Wollmeise from Gladys, a set of Addi Clicks, chocolate/candy/cookies, Christmas music (a full recording of Handel's Messiah!), and a ton of Pooh stuff (4 t-shirts, 2 lunch bags, and a mug).
I did a pretty good job of staying away from Boxing Day yarn sales. But I couldn't resist a trip to Dressew and came home with a little yarn and some books:
I spent most of the week between Christmas and New Year's working on my Mondo Cable Cardi. I cast off at Gladys' New Year's Eve party and wove in the ends which was a tricky thing to do because Gladys was doing this:
She's playing something called Dance Dance Revolution and I was laughing so hard that it was difficult to see my stitches.
The cardi was blocked the following day and I was hoping to have hubby take photographs today but the darn thing is still very wet. I'll whip out the tripod and take some self-portraits when it's finally dry.
My next bit of knitting will be socks for me. My sock drawer is down by 3 pairs so I need to fill it up again. I have 5 pairs otn so this is a chance to finish them up and get them on my feet.
