New Years List

I was reading Crazy Aunt Purl and added this to the comments section...and thought I would share it here also.
My list for this year is simple.

Be healther. Eat more fruit and veggies. Eat less whatever is in the drive thru.

Play with my dogs more. They are so fun to play with.

Quit beating me up for things I can't change. Past is gone and try as I might I can't fix and/or change past.

Smile as much and as often as I can.

And dance!

Once again

Once again I am starting my knitting for next year. But this year I am doing it a bit different. For each thing I knit or crochet I am making the same thing and putting it away for my All Craft 4 Charity group.
Last year I would make something for Charity and then get involved in personal knitting or crocheting. But this year I am just planning better.
First I am going to make some dishcloths and for each one of those I am going to make a 7" square and put it away.
Then socks, make a pair for family, make a pair for Charity. See the theme here.
And my Christmas list is short. I have had to just make things for my family. I just don't have the time to do for a lot of people. There are bloggers out here on the web that turn out beautiful items and seem to make them up in one day. I knit slow, for pleasure. I crochet slow and only can make a few things with crochet. I am hoping to improve my skills this year.
One thing I have learned on the internet is that if you want to learn how to do somthing, well there are instuctions out here. I "Google". I love Google and will spend way too much time looking at what comes up.
Pages and pages of how to knit socks. There are patterns and people showing on video how to knit socks. I am just fasinated by the whole concept. And there are groups to join that have the same interest as I do. All this in my pj's. How cool is that?
But now I have to go:
And there are only 364 crafting days till Christmas.

Why is it that no matter that I own a trillion yarn needles, there is not one in this house on Christmas Day. Really?

Silent Night

It is a quiet night for grandmothers who have grandchildren miles away. Who's children are just a little old for all the fuss. But it is a great night for hot chocolate, knitting needles and the picture albums.
I wish you all a Happy Holdiays. And a safe one.
I wish you all a New Year with all you need and some of the things you want.

Done and Done

Well I am done, with two granny square blankets. The Brown and Pink one is for My Granson's Girlfriends daughter, The Pink and Brown is for my ggd, Edy.
Won't be any more of these in my future. I am off to knit socks.
Right now I am at my daughter's and having the best time ever. She got a Pretty Thing Cowl, that I finished on the bus. And a pair of socks, that she loves...poor girl, now she will have to get a bigger sock drawer.
Today I see my gd. Can't wait!!!
