Crafted Items

I thought I'd post a couple of my recently finished items.

First up, is a pair of boot toppers. These were made for my daughter to wear to keep her legs a bit warmer in her rain boots.

Next up is a wreath I made for the house for Christmas. I posted a picture on Facebook and a friend like it so much she bought it from me.
I'll post the items I made for Christmas gifts soon.

I spent the first day of 2012 confined to a chair, foot up convalescing from surgery. I've knit several inches on the sock I cast on last night. The sock is Darjeeling by Cat Bordhi, published in The Knitter's Book of Socks. I'm knitting it in Cascade Yarns Heritage Silk 5603 colorway (blue). Oh and I've been unemployed for 4 months now.

My husband told me I should actually start writing my blog. So here I am.

In addition to the knitting, today I've:

  • Eaten one of the few meals my husband has cooked for me in our 24 year marriage.
  • Watched two episodes of Hell on Wheels.
  • Cooked crock pot chicken & vegetables with dumplings, with the help of my youngest daughter.
  • Listened to two Graham Norton podcasts.
  • Talked the dogs down from eating the front door, twice.
  • Updated the virus protection software on a laptop.

If today is any indication of the year to come, it's gonna be an exciting one!
