Snow Day!



I haven't dropped completely off the planet but thanks for those who expressed concerns for my well being. I am starting to come out of my funk (my code word for major depression). I've been to my doctor, had my meds adjusted, and I'm taking some positive steps toward changes that I hope will make for a happy new year.

Today is a snow day for both Mike and I so we got to sleep in late and I spent all morning/early afternoon going through my knitting books & magazines looking for the right vest pattern to make for myself. I found it in an old Vogue magazine. It even uses one of my absolute favorite stitch patterns, the Seafoam pattern. I used my gift card from my MIL to Webs to buy the yarn for the vest and a lace shawl I'm also going to make for myself. I usually spend my gift cards on yarn for the business but this year I decided I really wanted to knit myself some nice things to wear to craft shows and for fun.

These pics are from our last snow fall on Christmas Day with the girls on the farm. Kate is all bundled up in the wild scarf/hat set I made for her with pom pom yarn. I hope you are warm and cozy where ever you are today!

Taking a break from working and treating yourself to making something nice just for you is so great!
