"Nuttin but knittin" - that says it all, with an occasional deviation into the real world.

On the last day of Christmas......

Yes, for us, this is it.  We are having our official Christmas dinner today.  Schedules being what they are - waiting till the dust settles sometimes is best.  New Years is an official day to stay home, safe and sound for DH and I, so once today is over, our Holiday celebrations are pretty much finished.  We had a nice time though. The few handknits that I gifted were well received.  That's always nice!  But....


BG was sick.  Not feeling terribly bad, but just not his perky, mischievous self.  He had Roseola, rash and all.  Christmas photos were pretty subdued.  While he enjoyed his new toys, well, he wasn't as animated as he usually is.  His momma tells me he is back to normal now, so he should really enjoy things when he comes over this afternoon for dinner.  I managed to get his train table re-configured, holding his new Thomas Train 
 pieces, so hopefully we'll see some excitement when he sees it! 


I managed to finish my Advent Scarf on schedule, but it is not blocked yet.  Photos will be coming soon.  I am still working on my mom's scrap shawl.  She likes it, and it should be done soon.  Those long rows of garter stitch are growing as we speak!  I also am working on a cowl for DH.  I gave him one of mine to wear when he was outside working a couple of weeks ago, and he was sold.  So....off to find a"manly" shade of Malabrigo.  I'm using a pattern that I had highly modified to make my own, and of course my notes are inadequate several years later, so I have had to frog back and do parts over several times, but hopefully it will get finished soon too.  So - photos coming.

And, Sofee has FINALLY discovered a benefit of having BG around so much......

I hope you all had a great Christmas, and only the best 
to each of you in the New Year!

I like your idea of having the family dinner sometime other than Christmas Day. It is less stressful for those who have multiple familes. Sorry Grant was sick but very happy he is back to normal.

Looking forward to seeing your finished scarf. Your nupps look soooo much better than mine.

Happy New Year, Kathy! I cannot wait to see your finished scarf; I'm almost done with day 7 (ahead of the game for next year, right?) I am anxious to know the dimensions also. Your GS and mine would have a great time together!

Gorgeous poinsettia! Sorry to hear BG was under the weather, but glad that it was a short episode. Little ones bounce back quickly!

Sorry you had to postpone your holiday. I hope BG is all better now. He must love the new toys. The kitchen and train table are fantastic!
Look at Sofee all comfy in the chair. She may need her own:)
