My Christmas haul

I always feel so spoiled at this time of year and this year was no exception.

  Hubs gave me 4 pair of jeans and 4 tops and cash

 Kelli gave me a Coronation Street calendar and a blender so I can make  my smoothies  

 Cari gave me Mirasol Yarn Paqu Pura yarn and a set of knitpicks DPN's The Set Includes 6 needles per size. (2.00mm)(2.25mm)(2.50mm)(2.75mm)(3.00mm)(3.25mm)

So on boxing day I made myself a fruit smoothie and casted on the sockhead hat. the hat only took a few days to finish and I am so happy with the way it turned out.

This is going to be perfect for our long cold winter

Happy New Year 2015

 We had a nice family Christmas this year everyone had the day off of work so we had lots of time to enjoy everyone's company.

New year's eve was spent alone watching TV and knitting, Hubs was working the night shift but this will be the last new years eve alone because he will be retiring in June no more working major holidays yea!!! you have no idea how happy this makes me! :D

here is a look back on the 2014 knits... wow... I made a lot of socks this year!
