I knit. And I cook, write, take pictures. All for one low price.

Happy New Year!

We're back!!
After doing 10 loads of laundry yesterday and buying a lot of groceries -- we had eaten the pantry completely bare before we left -- I am taking a minute to say hello and Happy New Year.

I hope your holiday was as wonderful as ours. We were very glad to be able to be there for Christmas, and my dad's birthday.

On the second day of our stay, we needed to run downtown (or rather, to the center of town), to catch the last day of the annual Christmas market.

Of course there was a yarn booth! Complete with ready made socks and scarves.

They were selling lots and lots of sock yarn, all Regia as far as I could tell.
I sure wasn't even going any closer to that booth than this, even to look, or inquire about prices. I am NOT buying any more yarn until I've used up a lot of my stash! I still have "souvenir yarn" from the last couple of trips...:)

More tomorrow.

Welcome Home! You know, my New Years Challenge for '08 is to knit from my stash with 3 exceptions. When tempted yesterday with ridiculous amounts of yarn (from Colorful Stitches) in the Goodwill I passed without a regret! I really surprised myself.

Hope you guys had a great time and I can't wait to see some pictures of those cathedrals! Happy New Year to your family :-)

Welcome back! I missed you. Glad you had a good visit. That yarn booth looks amazing; I admire your willpower! My sock yarn bin is filled to overflowing, but I have such a hard time resisting sock yarn! It's the only kind that I know how much to buy and also know exactly what I'm going to make it into. ;)
