I've barely been knitting lately. I worked on a toddler sweater that I finally finished yesterday or day before. It took me forever because I haven't wanted to knit for some reason.

Tonight DH and I will be home together. I got up before 5 (early for me) and we haven't cared whether we see a new year in or not for some time. But we're having a nice evening. We played some on-line Boggle and then worked a New York Times Monday crossword puzzle together. We're fixing to have some popcorn and watch a movie.

Happy New Year everyone.

Hi everyone!

Our party got started early, didn't it?

I took a LONG nap this afternoon, so I would be able to make it until 3:30 AM in here. I'll be welcoming the New Year for every time zone, so I'll be a busy chickie!

Right now, I am printing out the names of all the entries for the prizes, so I'll check back in soon!

In the meantime, here's a wordsearch game I made for you all to print out. (Just click the image to go to a larger size in Flickr, then print it out to play.) Have at it!

Knitting in the new year with a baby hat for my friend's newborn, born Dec. 30. My first time knitting anything for a baby, I'm excited about the yarn,(Bernat baby Jacquards florals) it's supposed to make flowers and I will be happy if it does, I normally stick to solids.

I love the way Jacquards knits up! I've made a few hats and booties with the yarn. Soooo pretty!

Happy New Year!



Hi, everyone! Thank you, Shandeh!


Here on the West Coast we still have about 3 1/2 hrs.

I wouldn't stay up on New Year's eve, normally except that the noise will wake me and if I've just gone to sleep I don't go back to sleep.
