Holiday Knitting 2013

Another holiday season has come and gone – and I completed a few knitting projects along the way… As usual, I knit a pair of worsted weight socks for my mom – she has cold floors and likes the extra thickness for warmth. She has three pairs of handknit socks now, so this pair is […]

A New Year and Knitting Goals

Another year has gone by and I wanted to take a few moments to give an update on my holiday knitting projects and what my goals are for 2013… I had so much fun knitting the holiday ornaments and gave out almost all of them as gifts. The only one I kept is the first […]

Deck the… Balls!

I have become a slight tad obsessed with knitting lately. Or at least with knitting a certain kind of project, anyway. We are in the swing of the holiday season right now and for once I haven’t left my holiday knitting until the very last moment. Back in October, I was at the local yarn […]

Christmas gifts, last-minute style

As I’m somewhat prone to procrastination, I didn’t really think much about Christmas gifts for 2011 until the season was well underway.

Happy Fourth of July!

As per our usual routine, we are spending the holiday at home, with friends. We’ll be attending our local parade – in part because Hannah will be walking in it with her cheerleading program, but also because the girls really had a good time when we went last year. And we’ll be hitting the local […]

Top o’ the morning to you!

Or well, rather Top ‘o the Evening, at this point. But either way, Happy St. Patrick’s Day! A little late, yes I know. We all celebrated by wearing green, of course – except Ron, whose excuse was that he’s not Irish. Spoilsport… Becca and I both pinched him. Our other big excitement was the annual […]

Bringing in the New Year

For the second year in a row, the girls and I packed up and headed down to visit my friend Mary over New Year’s. We’d always gone down and visited at some point during Christmas break, but last year the only time that worked out for everyone was over the holiday – and Ron and […]
