Wrist Warmer Burnout

It's official. I'm burn out on wrist warmers and need a break. After seeing the movie Eight Below and feeling sentimental toward my dog(s) - I think I'll knit them a sweater. How long can Sassie tolerate a wool turtleneck??

A Hat 4 Amy

My darling neice, Amy, joined me for a yoga class and then sushi on Sunday. I made her this hat from Hip Knit Hats. (There are many errors in this book so be sure to check the attached link).

What a great 3-day weekend to clean out closets and drawers for a garage sale/DAV and part with the old stuff. Got to do Flora's yoga class three days straight!! It feels so good to train with weights, do cardio and then top of with stretching and breathing. The pressure's on to get in shape for summer.....

A Scarf from Aunt Janine

I received a package in the mail to find a wrapped Christmas gift from my Aunt Janine in Portland, Oregon. My aunt is new to knitting and I SOOO hope she knitted this with loving thoughts of me! My fellow knitting "goobers" know who you are -- we put so much of our feelings into knitted projects for others.

Fun at Work

Another New Year's resolution I made to myself is to enjoy my job and have more fun doing it instead of being so stressed out all the time. So this time, instead of driving at 4:30 a.m. to get to a new client in Kansas City by 8, I decided to leave a day early, have a nice meal and spend the night. Stopped at a knitting shop in Olathe called Knit Wit and guess what I purchased -- more sock yarn--Regia Silk. It's OHH so soft. Also picked up the 2nd series book, Not Just MORE Socks. On the cover is the Japanese split sock named Tabi that are worn with flip-flops. Gotta make myself some of these! Topped off a great day with a sushi dinner at the Sushi House in Town Center. Cranked up the heat in my hotel room to 74 for a cozy night's sleep.

Super Bowl Wrist Warmer

I had the best seat in the house at my sister-in-law's Super Bowl party. Snagged the leather recliner by the fire and knitted this one lone wrist warmer.
