Happy New Year! I hope your holiday season was as fantastic as ours. If you are wondering about my holiday to do list. I'm happy to say that it was mostly completed! I didn't finish Sammy's sweater until December 31st but I'm still counting that as a victory. Here are some of my favorite photos of everyone enjoying their gifts!
Sammy had to take his hippo to breakfast with him!
Have you ever seen a kid so happy to have a hat and mittens. That girl knows how to appreciate a hand made gift! My favorite moment of the day was when Brooklyn hugged me and said, "Aunt Beth whenever I miss you I'm going to just hug my hippo and think of you." Can you ask for more? Now where is my hippo to hug?
Several of the blogs I follow had a finished object count in their New Year's post. I did my count and it turns out I had 37 finished objects in 2011. I'm completely amazed by that number.
I've been thinking about my goals for 2012 and here's what I have so far:
- Use up a good chunk of my stash yarn. I've been working on a plan today...more to come on this one.
- Knit at least two sweaters for myself. I'm getting to work on this one right away and I just ordered yarn to start my first one. I know this is counter to goal one but I really didn't have enough bulky weight yarn. Really...I promise. :)
- Try not to turn myself into a crazy person during the holiday season. This year's holiday knitting got out of control. I really don't want to do that again!
We've had so many blessings in 2011 and I hope 2012 is fully of many more.
