"Thanks Auntie Michele for my very own hat!
I can take it off all by myself! I'm a big boy!"
"Thanks Auntie Michele for my hat! Will you buy me a car?
No, a real one."
I sent Mr K his hat for his birthday. They sent me a picture of Corey wearing it & it's too big & he looks pissed. So, I made Corey a hat for his birthday. Yes, the guilt worked. ;)
"What is it? I'm scared!"
"Smoothie, don't get too close, it might eat you!"
"Yeah, Mom calls it a 'black hole!' "
"She said, 'Shish Coom Bah, who knew Stockinette could be so blah...'"
"Yeah, then Dad laughed."
The Norwegian KAL started New Year's Day (midnight Oslo time). It's been lots of fun seeing everyone's progress. I'm glad lots of other people were in stockinette hell with me. Wow, I forgot how much I dislike doing it. Now that I'm in the color work, I'm enjoying it. I ripped out the color work twice. Still not thrilled, but hoping blocking evens everything out.
2009 Wrap Up
I was reflecting on 2009 and have to say it was a good year.
I finished The Princess!
Finishing The Princess was definitely a highlight!
Dyeing yarn and having 'beginner's luck' was also a highlight.
Not to mention Corey being born.
I got full range motion back in my right arm & shoulder. Realized my headaches were a result of my neck being out.
The biggest highlight.
I was sitting on my couch, holding the tv remote, half watching tv & half wishing the KAL would hurry & start, when Wooly walks up to me. I held up the remote to give it to him, he motioned me to scoot over. I got scared thinking this either means tickle attack or bad news.
He says, "I want to tell you something... You know, I've been waiting my whole life for this... I'm very happy with where we 'are' right now and have YOU to thank for it."
I say, "What?! WOW! I can't believe it! Say it again!"
You know, we want to know we're loved & appreciated. Men, you need to say it out loud. Eating all your food off your plate isn't enough. Tell your better half that you love & appreciate her. Just do it. Now.
Onward to 2010
New Years Day my amaryllis just started to open up. Today it looks like this.
I'm hoping this year will be a great year too.
I'm looking forward to finishing Whistler (the black hole).
And I hope to make great progress on The Queen. (I'm still knitting the edge points. Don't know why that's so hard for me! But, I'm over half done.)
So, cheers to 2010!
I've been saying, "Here's to a new decade!"
Wooly corrected me, I guess the new decade starts next year. I still don't get it, but guess it really doesn't matter.
Happy Knitting! :)
