Happy almost New Year! And a Few Finishes

The reindeer have come and gone!

But the amaryllis keeps getting bigger every day.

I finished these two hats, one for the friend who's undergoing cancer treatment and the other for a new baby.

I also finally finished this project for my sister.

I hope everyone has been having an enjoyable holiday season and wish everyone a very Happy New Year!

Another Finish and a Couple Other Photos

These mitts are done! It's the second pair I've made with this pattern, and they knit up quickly.

 I meant to post this photo earlier and hope it doesn't make you sore just looking at it! Our grand daughter and her friend were practicing on the balance beam that Dick made for her. Just last week her team won first place!

And this photo makes me sad! Practically every time I've walked lately, I've picked up lots of trash. I guess people just toss it out of their cars when they drive down our local streets. Between the trash on the streets and the fact that folks are no longer following the speed limits here, it makes walking not very fun anymore.  I hope where you all live, it's much better!!

Another Finish and Our Crazy Plant!

I finally finished this hat and just discovered it's the fourth time I've used this pattern! This time, however, it fought me all the way for some odd reason.

Our good friend gave us this Amaryllis recently, and it's sprouting with the biggest flower bud we've ever seen. It also looks like there's another bud as well. Wow!

Well, it's time to get back to the rest of my "finish in December" projects.
