I do hope you’re as wonderful and interesting as 2008, even though I didn’t do anything to welcome you in! Yesterday I finally decided that my ‘ignore it while I do fun things’ attitude to my cold might have some influence on the way it’s lingered for forever. So in an attempt to actually do something to get rid of it I spent the evening eating soup, watching Six Feet Under and knitting, and then I went to bed at 9.30. That might be rather pathetic, but after 13 hours sleep I do feel a little better. And since they woke me up I did at least get to see the fireworks. I’ve spent today pottering around the house, cleaning up a little, knitting some more,
and making sure to drink plenty of fluids.
Right now I’m off to heat up more soup and maybe in a few days I’ll be ready for 2009 to get a little more interesting, but right now I’m quite happy with it being quiet. Wishing you and yours a happy, peaceful and knitting filled year!
Here in the studio, we are definitely feeling like it is sweater time. Some of us are still finishing up accessories from our holiday knitting, but we are excited about making sweaters and the workplace chat is full of links to Ravelry and other pattern sources with riffs on what yarn we could use and how we could adapt them.
