It's been a while

I haven't posted anything in almost a month. To tell the truth I had completely forgotten to write anything. With the holidays over and all my knitting caught up I haven't thought of much to say. I have been cruising through Ravelry looking at patterns trying to find some new project that jumps out at me. The only problem is that there is so many things out there that I can't pick one thing! Earlier this month I did sign up for a swap on Ravelry, and at least I was able to pick out the perfect pattern for my swap partner but I won't post anything else on that until I have sent it out and she has received it. I am excited enough about it to make some for myself. Soon I will have something more interesting to say!

Goodbye 2010, Hello 2011

The cookies are gone, the presents unwrapped and the stress over. Sadly, the holidays are over, but they were very wonderful.

I finished almost all of my knitting on time with the exception of one cowl for my aunt, but she got to see what I had and I will mail it off to her when it is done. I made both of my aunts cowls as they loved the Groups of Loops cowl that I made for my mom. But I guess that theirs are more infinity scarves than cowls. I made theirs thinner than my original pattern and twice as long so that they can double them with this cold weather we are having. 

This was the first year that my boyfriend spent Christmas at my Grandpa's house, although we have been spending Christmas at my parents for a few years. So he decided to make cookies for ALL of my family. We made 2 to 3 batches of cookies (making 5 to 8 dozen a piece) every night after work starting a week before Christmas. Unfortunately several of them didn't turn out or were kind of blah. Needless to say they didn't make it to my Grandpa's and ended up going to work with me this week. There they didn't last long. 

But I can't wait for this year to start, I got a sewing machine for Christmas and I am so excited to start using it. My crafting in starting to explode, which probably isn't a good thing since it is also starting to take over my tiny apartment. 

But I can't wait to get started on the New Year. I know that it is going to be filled with new idea's, new crafts and new adventures! 

Happy New Year!
