Going out on a Limb

It's been a long time since I've knitted. My poor husband's Christmas hat is still on the needles. I did finish it in time for Christmas, but upon trying it on found that it could use a couple extra inches in length. ....so I frogged back the decreases and added the length and then I misplaced the pattern and now I'm stuck in limbo till I get brave and guess at the decreases.....or find the pattern. I'll probably end up trying to fudge it.

Lots going on in January. I am having so much fun with my part-time day-care job, that the days seem to be whizzing by especially quickly for this time of year.

I haven't been to SnB at all this year so far. Partly because I have nothing new on the needles and partly because when it gets this cold I hate leaving the house for even the best of reasons. I could go from 10:00-11:30 and be back in time for Sofi's arrival.......but, but.....well it's just so damn cold outside. I am such a cold weather wimp (especially in the morning.)

Like I said.....nothing new on the needles, but I intend to change all of that soon. As soon as I finish husbands hat.......and scarf. ( I'm thinking of knitting him up the "mistake scarf")
I want to try "branching out" again. I will not let the "branching out" scarf beat me in 2007. I have learned how to insert lifelines since the last time I attempted it and believe me.....I am gonna use them. It's time that I get over my fear of branching out and just knit it already. Besides it'll be nice to be able to claim that I've knitted easy lace.

So again I say....."Go out on a limb.....that's where all the good fruit is."

and so I shall.

Your not the only one who hates the cold. After haveing a christmas getting pounded with snow, 4 feet in 2 weeks. I am ready for maybe a couple of weeks in Key West FL. Not only do I not want go out of the house, I don't want to get out a nice warm bed. I wish had a fire place. no wait,a remote control fire place to sit by and and good TV shows so I could keep warm and watch all the winter people to enjoy winter sports and activities. Give me the summer heat. How many days until the 90's come back. It's going to be a long winter.

Proper winter attire only gets in the way! But yes, I am always cold in the winter and always hot in the summer. And my hands are 99% of the time cold and clammy no matter what time of year it is. But as the saying goes "Cold hands....warm heart."

I miss you too, Connie. Hope to see you soon.
