A new year begins

Do you ever find yourself caught up in the moment?

Becoming engrossed in an entertaining activity.

You know, something that stretches the brain,

Or that gets your creative juices flowing like lava down the mountain side?

No stopping it 'til the newness cools


Maybe it's the family circle that fulfills your days.
Time well-spent reminiscing, listening, appreciating, enjoying

The time passes so quickly . . . . .


That's the way this month has gone.


But now the Holiday Season celebrating has come to a slow-down,
Decorations are packed away
for another ten or so months [well, almost].
There's more or less time for life to fall into a routine that provides the time to center thoughts enough to plot a course for 2014.


That's the way it's been here.


My PASSION for knitting still very much occupies my thoughts and time.
Well, that and video chatting with family via Google+ Hangout and FaceTime.
How fun is that !!!!
One recent afternoon was spent knitting with my daughter on FaceTime.
How much more fun can it get?


Sweaters, sweaters.

Yes, my passion for knitting is almost entirely focused on knitting cardigan sweaters for me

The wonderful success with my green sweater,

Has provided me the confidence to chart my course for 2014.

Sweaters, Sweaters, Sweaters!!!!


My Grasshopper Cardigan is such a dream to wear.

I love it.


Very soon another cardi will be ready for its debut.

??? By the end of this week ???


These two quick triangle shawlettes finished just before the end of the year.

Aren't they cute?

So practical

what with the Polar Vortex.

  4. I had a feeling you were busy knitting the new cardi. Hope to see it Wed evening. I agree your green cardi is a dream. It fits you so well and of course the color is great. The shawlettes look so nice (and set off so well with the props in the photos). I can tell that photography was a previous hobby. You have a way of making everything you do and wear reflect your creative energy.
