 Some recent and not so recent highlights...

  • Doctor Who Melted Snowman Ornament~ I made it for a swap with my knitting group.
  • Preparing for Follow Your Arrow Mystery KAL~ Pattern by Ysolda Teague
  • Make-ahead Mason Jar Salads~ Made on Sunday evening... they really do stay fresh right through Friday.
  • My Arrow blocking~ what a fun KAL this was!
  • The Yarn Harlot~ how surreal it was to meet her. I so recommend her new book. So, so funny!
  • The softest socks I've ever knit
  • However, these are my favorite socks...
  • So why not make some for my sister?
  • Willow Cowl~ easy knitting and the color changes are so entertaining.
  • Springtime in Virginia~ Pattern by Kirsten Kapur. Not such a springy color... so, maybe "Autumn in South Jersey". Scored the perfect buttons in Mom's old button box.

December 2013 Photo a Day~ Finish up

Okay, so we are nine days into the new year and I haven't yet finished up my Photo a Day from December. Time to finish that up so I can move into 2014 with a clean slate.

If you remember, Day 18 & 19, Christmas Tree and Christmas Jumper/Sweater were skipped in my last post. Since I never got a photo of my neighbor's Ugly Sweater, here are two photos of my tree, a traditional photo and one with an attempt at being more creative.

And for the rest:

Day 22: Nice

Day 23: Family

Day 24: Christmas Movie

Day 25: Lunch

Day 26: Tradition

Day 27: Hat... and Day 29: Red

Day 28: Work in Progress

Day 30: Winter (mess) ~ not actually taken on Day 30!

And yes, I cheated a bit. I doubled up on Hat and Red and I left off Celebrate. I just didn't get the camera out on New Years Eve, but that doesn't mean I didn't celebrate! Well... A glass of wine with dinner and staying up until midnight counts, doesn't it?

Happy New Year and Warm Wishes to you all,  Lilea
