It's a new year, right? Hasn't really kicked in over here yet. We still have too many holiday sweets around, the tree is still up and the only reason I got out of my pajamas yesterday was to go to the library to get a book to sit and read all day. (book was Where'd you go, Bernadette? and I really enjoyed it!) The kids have slowed into hibernation mode also which is wonderful. I'm sad, and a little panicked, that we only have 3 days left.
I've been doing a lot of knitting. I knit this hat twice and this hat, both highly recommended. Also knit this little bear from a Jess Hutchison pattern. I knit him on size 4 needles with sport weight yarn hoping he would turn out small enough to go on the tree. He's tree size — maybe 6"? — but too cute to pack away with Christmas so he's being added to the menagerie around here.
