Why did I wait until today to post New Year's greetings? Well, it's like this: in our family there are 3 birthdays after Christmas, one on the 28th, one today, and yet another on the 10th, quickly followed by one more on the 29th! So, you see, I've been knitting like a crazy woman.
This cowl has been delivered already. It's a quick fun pattern from Darn Knit Anyway and was a great way to use a large button already in my collection. Here's a close-up of the button which is one of my favorites ever.
The gifts for the next two birthdays are done, but I can't post them until next week after they've been delivered. In case you're wondering, our snow is GONE! The photo on my header is witch hazel which blooms here in January; there are several of these bushes/trees we see on one of our walking routes. And in case you're interested, my goals for 2018 are to finish:12 WIPs along with 12 sock WIPs, most of which are missing sock # 2, and to finish some cross stitch projects along with some quilts that are just minus their binding. Wish me luck!
