2007 Recap

Everybody's doing here goes. My 2007 recap

1. Finally got to go on a honeymoon after 2.5 years of marriage. DisneyWorld in January. We had a blast!

2. Bought our first house in April. Love it still!

3. Took some cooking classes

4. Got my Ravelry invite

5. Finally got promoted to the job I've actually been doing all year

6. Finished a few knitted objects. Not as many as I would have liked.
Irish Hiking Scarf
Garter Rib Socks

I don't really have any resolutions for next year. The usual - lose weight, get in better shape, be more financially secure, take a vacation, etc.

For knitted goals I would like to: Finish Branching Out, make myself another pair (or two) of socks, make my first sweater, buy some STR, and learn color knitting.

Here's hoping that everyone has a great New Years! Happy 2008 Ya'll!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Last weekend we braved the ice storms to head down to Arkansas and spend the weekend with my family for our Christmas. It was a very short but sweet trip.

Now we have a few inches of snow in the KC metro and I am glad that we don't have to travel again. I ran out yesterday morning and finally finished up the Christmas shopping before the mess hit. Around noon we got freezing rain and eventually it turned to snow. Now everything outside is a lovely white. Today will be a great day to stay in and bake cookies. I might try Sandy's easy peanut butter kiss recipe as well.

Even if the weather stays bad we only have to travel one mile tomorrow to my in-laws and then about seven miles on Christmas day. Sometimes I actually am glad I live close to all of my in-laws. Not very often mind you, but sometimes.

Since I haven't been posting or knitting much I probably won't post again until after the new year.

Here's wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Today is a sick day from work but a good day to finish things. Last night I finished up the socks for my mom for Christmas. We also put up the Christmas tree, outside garland with lights, and some inside decorations.

Today I finally finished up the Irish Hiking Scarf. It's a little short as I only used one ball of Patons Classic Wool. I may give it to DH for Christmas.

I can't believe it's December 1st. I am still working on my mom's socks, about 3 inches left on the foot of the second sock and then the toe. Good thing I wasn't planning on many knitted gifts this year.

the Lady Knits is having a contest for some great prizes. Drop by and enter when you get a chance.

Now that we are living in our first house I am so geared up to start decorating for Christmas. I have been putting it off until December but today is the day! I bought this cute guy last weekend.
