High Fiber--Farewell and Back to Normal

Miss Daphne and her family are on their way home.

You will see in the photo the felted diaper bag in use, Karen's new felted bag she got for Christmas lying in a bin, Daphne in her BSJ. David isn't wearing his scarf in the photo. Here it is in use:


We had a wonderful visit with both granddaughters, shown here, using my iPad to check their Facebook pages and email:



I got some Daphne time, too. She really likes to be held and cuddled. Here I am with her, keeping her happy so her mom can have a rest.


We will see them again in July for the wedding of their uncle. The tree has been put away and all the baby stuff that stays here has been collapsed ready for storage. As soon as all the boxes of wrapping paper and ribbon are stored away, we will be back to normal. Whatever that is!


I got one more knitting project done during the holidays. We went out for a sushi lunch and then to a movie, and somehow my purple knitted hat got lost. Hand knit, but just acrylic, and I had had it a long time, so it wasn't a big deal, but I needed a hand-knit cap to wear! I had the yarn--Andean Silk in cranberry--and so I CO right away. I finished it last night.


It's the Claudia Hat by MJKim. It's so much warmer than my old acrylic hat! I also got a few more inches done on the second sleeve of my La Boheme Cardi. Soon I can join the sleeves and body and start on the yoke. That's the fun part!


I missed out on one of my New Year's Resolutions for last year: Learning how to knit backwards. Well, it moves forward to this year. Last year was one of the busiest of my life, and this year promises to be busy too, with DGD1's graduation from HS, the wedding and Sock Summit! I have lots of spinning, knitting and quilting projects planned or in progress, though, so it should be a fun year!


Happy New Year, everyone! Happy knitting, quilting, spinning and crocheting!

Knitting backwards comes in handy for entrelac and if you want to avoid purling (I don't, so that's probably why I haven't done it yet.) you just do the same thing, only the way you would see it in the mirror, and going from left to right instead of right to left.

Beautiful photos, happy looking family and grand baby. You have a very busy and full life. Enjoy your new year. The hat looks warm and cozy.

I'm always happy to see your posts--love the pictures and getting to put faces and names together.  Happy New Year, Peggy!  But one thing.....knitting backwards?

My new hat is zipped in the liner of my down coat!
Regarding knitting websites, my favorites are www.knitpicks.com (Crafts Americana division, like Connecting Threads.) Also www.ravelry.com and www.knitty.com.

Nothing more precious than cuddling with grandchildren.  You both look very content. Your hat does look like a winner and keep your head warm. Just don't loose this one!!!!!

Love the color of the hat...Snuggling with the grandies is the best!

Pretty hat, Peggy.  It looks so cozy at your house, and lucky you and Daphne, to have some snuggle time!  I'm pretty sure that you are the knitting queen.  I am just learning, teaching myself.  Do you know of any good websites for knitting?
