Happy New Year!

You know...I told myself at the beginning of the year that I wanted to be better about blogging my knitting projects in 2019, and here we are, a full week in, and I'm just coming around to it.  Oy!

The holidays brought me two knitty books (yey!), two yarny gift cards (yey!), a book on goats, a set of interchangeable needles (double yey!), and some extra time to stalk the yarn sites.  Darn Good!  Knit Picks! Did you guys see that the Quince Quarterly sold out in like two days?  ...and I'm thinking I may need to take some Blue Sky for a test knit.  Truthfully, I've been geeking out about yarn a little more than is healthy.

My hands have been with fiber a little more frequently since the weather started to turn.  I do have projects to share, just not pictures yet, so you'll have to settle for a sneak peak of my current WIP.  Can I just say how much I am loving tweed right now?  I may have to knit something with every color.  Even that weird orangey-red color.  But probably not pink.

We just came through the end-of-holiday-break crush of kiddie social events.  Everyone was trying to cram them in before the drudgery of the dark, dull wintertime grind kicked in.  On Saturday, our sleepover host asked if we could meet at her church instead of home, and we ended up hanging in for a very nice talk on the dangers of comparison, something I think we all fall prey to a little more easily in this season of New Year, New You!

If you are so inclined, you may enjoy checking it out...  :)
