Happy New Year.

WE spent the start with my best cousins. I love them so much and we all get along so well. I am such a lucky girl. The kids all play great together and we all just enjoy each others company like crazy! How fun!

I started a beanie for DS1 this afternoon... then we went to the movies. DD and I opted for Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader we were NOT disappointed... I loved the movie. The boys went to see TRON. The young boys loved it... the older one, not as much. Of course he took a nap during the movie, so he really has no right judging it!

Anyway, much to my surprise, I finished the beanie this evening. It was 2 color work and looks like this:

Pattern: the skull beanie
Yarn: 100purewool single ply
still working on knitting down the stash
Colors: negro, crudo
Needle: US9
Recipient: DS1

Hope he likes it. He's sleeping now and I just finished it about 20 minutes ago.

now back to the regularly scheduled socks for DH with the Noro sock yarn (which I don't like at all) on my lantern moon ebony sox stix (which I love so much)

Have a healthy new year! I'm hoping my broken toe mends really fast. I can't believe how much the darn thing still bothers me.

He'll love the beanie, I'm sure :)

Hope your toe feels better real soon. I remember how much my baby toe hurt when I broke it a very long time ago (my boys were babies then). I had to buy shoes that were a size bigger, and guess what? I'm still wearing the bigger size ;)
