Happy New Year!!
I hope each of you have a healthy, happy and prosperous year..and what's all the talk of 'yarn diets'...no way~~NOT happening here.
A little sock yarn that my Sis gave me for Christmas..and the sock class begins next Tues..well, that should be a hoot...but I'm game..I also bought..see, no diet here...this other skein ..it's WOOL..so it's going to be a bowl at some point...thanks to Dana for the wonderful bowl pattern...now I just need her youthful mind to help me figure some of the language.. and I need to buy special yarn if I'm going to knit the 'exact' pattern.
I have quite a few loose ends on the needles and nothing is screaming to me to hurry up...I need motivation!! Maybe I'm just still in the holiday mode..after all, I do still have my tree up..and I don't see it coming down in the next few days unless there's a service that comes around and 'undecorates'...too busy for it at the moment.
We had friends down for New Years Eve and I made chili and cornbread..and a too die for chocolate cheese cake...and I had found this great sounding recipe for black eyed peas, collards, kielbasa with a cornbread topping...that I was going to fix for New Years Day..but I was called to be with a friend. her Father was dying..so I spent most of the day and afternoon with her..and he did pass away that afternoon...but when I got home, I was too tired...too sad and too stressed to cook...so we had leftover chili...thank goodness for leftovers...But..I did fix the casserole yesterday and I would highly recommend...quite tasty and I will do again. I enjoyed having all those 'lucky new year items' in one dish.
Happy Knitting ...~~
