All the kids went back to school yesterday, we had an extended winter break due to the snow. We are meant to have more snow this weekend. Normally our snow is gone in less than 12 hours, but because it is colder than normal we still have alot of snow on the ground. It has been a busy week. Son #2 turned 12 on Saturday Jan 6th. I now have a “TWEEN” in the house, although Sat night I had 8 tweens sleep over for his birthday (they were alot quieter than when I had the 9 year old girls sleep over). It is amazing how quickly our kids grow, you blink and they are all grown up. So because of how quickly time goes by, and how often we look to the future and not live in the moment, I decided my New Years Resolution is to “Live in the moment, enjoy what I have now, spend the time with the people I care about and stop worrying about tomorrow”
Now I have actually done some knitting
I think I am addicted to the Fetching gloves. Here’s a close up of the gloves.
Scarf: Pattern: Potato Chip Scarf from Knitpicks,com
Wool: Caron Simply Soft, Color Sutumn Red
I made this set for me, they are so warm, I think I’m going to make more.
I also made a pair for D#1, but I adjusted the pattern. She picked the colors out of left over yarn I had. She even wears them in bed.
I used the Fetching pattern but adjusted it to fit. I only cast on 36 stitches, then I did 2 x2 rib instead of cable, and I used size 2 needles.
Finally I’m still doing the Runagogo,
I walked 6 miles last week (94 miles to go). Got to keep myself motivated, so I treated myself to this Sorry the picture is blurry. Of course I had to get the TWEEN to help me download songs to it. So today I walked 2.2 miles, only 91.8 miles to go. Have a great day.
