Happy New Year!

As usual I'm blogging late at night. It's almost midnight on New Year's Eve, so happy 2007!

My parents left this afternoon to go back home :-( so we're feeling a bit let down here.
Luckily I have a lot to keep me occupied. My Dad bought some shelves for me while they were here and today we set them up and moved things around. I'm not done yet, but when I am I'll post some before and after pics.

I also have some pictures I need to post of items that were Christmas gifts. I still haven't finished my DH's sweater, but hopefully in the next week that'll get finished. I hope to have more knitting time once school is back in session, but we'll see. He seems to be thrilled with it (despite the way it looks now--it's truly NOT impressive at the moment). I'm married to the most wonderful man in the world; not only does he understand my need to create things, he's even willing to wear them. :-)

This is Gillian modeling the hat I made for my Mom. The band is from the same yarn as the scarf, and now I can't find a picture of it!! The pattern is from Fibertrends and the black yarn is Wool of the Andes from KnitPicks. It fits her quite well, and I'll have to get my Dad to take a picture of the scarf since it's now in Idaho.

I have some other pictures to post by I have to get them off the camera. Tomorrow is another day, as Scarlett says!

I'll also have to take some pictures of some of the gifts I received, including a Wacom graphics tablet from my wonderful husband (which is taking some getting used to, but it's fabulous so far) and some incredible hand-spun yarn from my very talented sister. Those are by no means the only presents I got, and they're all wonderful! Pictures coming soon, I hope--the weather also needs to get a little nicer since it's been very overcast and rainy for a few days now. Not the best weather for taking pictures.

I hope 2007 brings everyone happiness, good health, and prosperity!

Just wanted to let you know I knitted your Diagonal Rib hat yesterday. Turned out great! I used about 2 oz of leftover Malabrigo. Thank you.

Happy New Year to you and your family!
