It has been a long month. Snowing again with 6-8 inches predicted for overnight. Today was a nice day in the twenties. My friend Dianna and I went out for lunch, to the Library and then to the local Quilt shop. I am ashamed to say I have lived here 10 years and I am just getting a Library Card. I plan to borrow more and buy way less this year. I do LOVE, love books and reading. I have so many things I love, quilting, knitting, cooking, gardening, and card making. I did make a few birthday cards over the weekend. So fun. I also have finished these socks. Which were to be a Christmas present. My friend will just receive them a little late ( which they say is better than never!) I also started back in knitting on the Central Park Hoodie, which I started a year ago and then put away. This was a knit along with Knitting Daily. As you can see I did not finish with the rest of the group. It is hard to see in the picture, but there is a single cable down both shoulder edges and a double cable in the center. I have the back completed as pictured and have cast on to start on the left side. Perhaps by the end of the year I will have both front pieces finished. I am not a fast knitter, and other things that I love call me away. I did want to stop by and say happy January. Now I am off to spend the evening knitting on the Hoodie, watch some mindless TV and stay warm and dry. I am so thankful for central heat. Cheers and thanks to all for comments and for stopping by.
