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!
