Knitting in to the new year

The excitement of Christmas was accompanied by a lot of knitting time while watching Rowan or movies (depending on the time of day).

I finished his sweater and loved the yarn, the color and pattern. I even had enough left to make a matching hat. Unfortunately I shipped everything off today without taking a picture. I've asked my daughter-in-law to take one when it arrives so I can share it with you. If I finish my socks before returning home, I will deem this trip a knitting success.

Thanks for the encouraging words and support for my dad and I. I think it is going to be a difficult year for both of us and I foresee even more travel back and forth. I am cursing his decision not to move closer to us but understand this is his home.

Well, off for a couple of rounds of knitting and an episode of Bones before bed. Night.

Cute kids always trump knitting pictures. Course, cute kids in in knitting is the best.

It's so hard when the child becomes the caretaker. Time to start making plans for when we reach that stage. Bless your dear loving heart. Hope your dad recovers fully and decides to be practical about his last years.

I forgot to check for an online episode of Bones. I love that show. It made me say things like "I don't know what that means" all the time now instead of just letting it go when I'm confused. I like the idea of all these brainy people asking what things mean.
