Happy New Year

Posted on: December 31, 2009

Wow! I can’t believe it’s been Dec 14th since my last post!
So much has happened, none of it knitting. Knitting seems to have ground to a halt here for the moment. I’ve been doing a little bit, but nothing worthy of a picture.

Dad has been ill again, another 11 hour stint in A&E was required on Tuesday. Hopefully he’s sorted now, although it takes a lot out of an 86 year old being kept waiting that long.
Mam is ok, nothing out of the ordinary.
My brother in laws mother died on Christmas Eve and was buried this morning RIP. So sad to bury a loved one at this time of year. My friend from works mother was buried on Christmas Eve, so not a great Christmas overall here.

Although, can you believe Santa brought me two balls of Quivit? I can’t believe it. I must have been a very good girl. Apparently it costs more per ounce than gold? Wowee. I will post pics of it next time, but suffice to say it’s going to need a very special pattern for it!

Speaking of presents, the afghan went down a storm. Unfortunately it was gifted to the brother and sister in law who had the bereavement, but they rang me from Florida on Christmas Day to say thank you, they loved it so much. When I saw them again today for the funeral they were really grateful. Made me feel really good that they liked it so much!

I’m off out for a nice Indian dinner tonight. Hopefully that will give 2009 the kick in the butt it requires to make sure it goes away and never comes back again. 2010 has to hold brighter things for me. It has to. I shall have to make up a Resolutions list for 2010, and count up my FOs for 2009 to see if I finished more than 2008!

Happy New Year everyone!

Hope your dad is doing better now. Ooooh, Quivit?? Can't wait to see; I've never seen it in person or touched it!Happy New Year — I'm convinced 2010 will be much better.

A pattern??? for Quivit??? Surely you jest!!! You don't actually *knit* with Quivit! You fondle it; you show it to others but without letting them fondle it; you put it in a display case; or take a photograph of it and put *that* in the display case while you put the actually Quivit in a Bank Deposit box, in Switzerland. I'll have no more of this talk of *knitting* with Quivit! SRSLY!

Oh… and Happy New Year. It's gonna be a good one. After all, you've got Quivit!

I wish a great 2010 for you, with much health for you and your loved ones, plus loads of lovely FOs :)Can't wait to see the quivit yarn!

Happy New Year Sinead! I hope 2010 has health, happiness and lots of FOs in store for you and yours! I proved yet again this year that I am just not cut out for knitting to a deadline (as I continue to knit away on a pair of socks that should have been given to the receipient on the 22/12..). I don't know how I'm going to make it through the Ravelympics!Wow you must have been right up there on the nice list for santa to bring you Quivit! I can't wait to see what you make out of it.

Santa had you top of the nice list with that Quivit! Looking forward to seeing a picture. Deciding what to do with it will be a dilemma though.Here's hoping 2010 is a great one for you and the family.

Quivit? Wow! Someone was a good little elf, wasn't she? 🙂 You deserve it, sweetie. You've had a rough year, enjoy it!
