Happy New Year

5 01 2010

Exciting title I know.

I wish there was something interesting that has happened since the last time I posted.  I can’t say that much has happened.  The holidays occurred, the vacation at home occurred.  Friends, family, food…lots of food.  My lack of blogging has really been attributed to my lack of interest.  After all there is Ravelry, but not everyone has a Ravelry account.

The biggest thing I can announce is that despite my persistent procrastination I managed to finish up the Christmas presents for the kids.  I lucked out this year since I had until the 27th to get them completed.

This here is the first and last jellyfish I make out of dark-colored yarn.  Thing 1 adored it though and the alpaca is super soft and lovely to the touch.

This is the longneck, who’s long neck was not long enough, but is good enough.  I was in such a rush to get this guy done, I took him to a bar to finish him up while my friend and I watched an Arsenal game.  Of course in true fashion, I did not take a picture of him with the gloves on (which were well received).  (I remembered that today, doh!)  In days prior to the knitting in the bar, I spent much amusement with people who couldn’t figure out what I was knitting.

Now the sharptooth has a brother and see how they get along?

I finished the Calorimetry as well.  It still seems really really big to me.  (No, I didn’t do a swatch.  Yes, I know I should.)  I haven’t gotten a chance to give it to its recipient yet.

Happy New Year to all. ^.^
