The cooking-eating-hosting-visiting gauntlet from Thanksgiving to New Year's is over and 2012 is about to begin.

I don't know about all of you, but today I have this happy feeling that's not so unlike "Whew, that's all done with!"   Kids back at school, Craig back at work, me back in my own office.  Not that the whole holiday gauntlet isn't fun - because it is! -  but when that last day of vacation ends, and the decorations are down, and the laundry is done and the travel bags are back in the basement,  I'm a bit glad to know that the old routine is about to begin again. 

I like this routine.  There's yarn to play with. 

New yarn in fact,  up there on top.  It's something I haven't played with before - Zen Yarn Garden Serenity DK.   Roxanne sent me a few skeins earlier in the winter, and I have a swatch going of this yellow, which I have grown really fond of.   It keeps whispering "Vodka Lemonade" in my ear.   And this stuff wants to be lacy and feminine and it sooo makes me think of spring. 

However, I'm getting ahead of myself, because before spring gets here,  more winter knits are coming. 

Winter itself may NOT be coming to MA (I cannot say that without thinking, Game of Thrones!)  but the knits are already done, so they will definitely still come, snow or not.

Later this week!  


In the meantime, A Happy Happy and Healthy  New Year to all of you  :-)

Winter just came to use today- it probably dropped twenty or thirty degrees! Now I definitely am feeling the urge to finish up that chunky sweater!

LOVE this color! I think probably my favorite to wear - no matter the season. Happy, Happy! Let me know when cocktails are ready :O

Thea, I just linked to your blog for the first time. Love your designs and your very witty writing. And I only wish that our travel bags and laundry and thank you notes from the holidays were done at this point!

Thinking of you and Craig and what I just know are you wonderful girls. AND, I love that you mentioned Game of Thrones. My hub and I are totally addicted and cannot wait for it to start again.

Love, Heather (Mahan) Sanchez
