I also did quite a bit of knitting and have finished knitting my first baby jacket of the year. I have also started the one up above which is from Sirdar called Little Vintage Knits. This is on the front cover which is called the Girl's Fair Isle Cardi which is very pretty. The colors seem a bit washed out in the photo but they are actually a nice orange and bright pink color. This is for my god-daughter who turns 4 yrs old on the 12th of January so I am hoping to complete it by then.
Last year was a good year for knitting for me, although quite a few knits were of the smaller variety. I managed to knit up 17,932 metres of yarn which is a good effort I think. I also managed to knit 45 or 46 projects, will have to double check that later on.
I dont have any resolutions this year other than to be happy and healthier. Nothing else matters really when it comes down to it. We have settled really well into the old house. People have come to visit and mentioned how similar this house is to the other one we lived in. Perhaps the layout is similar but this one has a very different happier feel to it so far which is great.
This week has been a bit of a doozy for Isabelle as she got badly sunburnt on New Year's eve, and then got bitten by a spider the night afterwards. We thought she had a bad reaction to a mosquito bite but the next day the rash was bigger than my hand and had started turning purple. A trip to the hospital just after midnight, and then back to the doctor's the next day for antibiotics, and it is finally looking much better. She is still a bit tired out from it all but doesnt feel quite so ill now which is fantastic. I am hoping it wasnt a white tail spider (horrible nasty ones) which we have killed in the past few days. I think we found 3 of them but just assumed they had come in the boxes and furniture from the other house. Hopefully on the weekend we can spray around the house to stop them coming inside. Now Isabelle shakes all her clothing and checks her bed before hopping in.
So I think that is about it ..... just going to sit and relax and do a bit of knitting. Hope you are all well and 2012 is treating you well so far.
