Happy New Year!

I'm using Hubby's laptop, so that I can post this.  I haven't done too much knitting lately. Preparations for Christmas kept me away from my knitting needles.

I was going to share with you the new baby jacket that I had started to knit.  I cast on in white yarn that I had from my stash....yarn that I was going to use for the white cardigan that I was supposed to make for myself, but I discovered that the new baby's mama prefers earthtone colors.  So, I ripped all of it out & cast on with a mellow beige yarn.

I've got the traditional pork roast & sauerkraut in the slow cooker, mashed potatoes at the ready & German dumplings made & ready to boil.  So, excuse me while I look for an old movie to watch while I get back to my knitting.

Happy New Year.  Happy Knitting.  Here's to hoping that 2011 is kinder & gentler than 2010.  Miss you Mom.

After Christmas Post

I hope that everyone had a nice Christmas. We had our ups & downs, because this was our first Christmas without my Mom. She had been spending Christmas week with us ever since we loss my dad 22 yrs. ago.

So, I just wanted to let you know that I'm still here. I started knitting a baby sweater, however, I can't tell you too much more about it, because our PC monitor died yesterday and I'm posting this via my Nook that I got for Christmas. I think that I like it a lot, but I'm still learning what all I can do with it.

I'll post more details when I can my hands on a laptop.
