While you were knitting...

I had a quick Christmas with the kids...

Saw sunrise from the Detroit Airport...

Ate ice cream with Mom at the mall...

went to Michigan with out my hat and scarf..so started to make Norwegian Start hat for the 3rd time...

Received some venison!

Ate a whole lot of this yummy stuff...

Knit a Christmas colored kitchen set for a very special caregiver...

made another hat in the right colors this time..

said Goodbye to a very special Auntie...who taught me to knit when I was 7 years old with these needles...


Apparently grew much shorter standing next to my niece...

Finished my hat

which looked like this because I apparently had been skipping a whole paragraph of directions on the 2 previous run throughs of this pattern...(amazing how things fit when you read and follow all of the directions-sometimes you find you didn't need such a hu-moungous size!

Shoveled a whole lot of snow...which was covered up..and shoveled lots more...yep, that was a 6"ruler buried in there the night before I left...



fixed Mom's apron.

Watched a HUGE snow plow do it's thing..

Started a scarf to wear in Michigan but worked on it while waiting for the plane to leave Michigan...because I went to Michigan and didn't bring my hat or my scarf...

hung out at the beach with my daughter and the baker's helper prior to the big rain storm of 2010 while we could...

taught the 7 year old, baker's helper to knit so he could help make his scarf for his homework...


got nailed by a whole lot of rain around town..and down the backyard...

yep..a whole lot of rain...

finished the scarf back in California...

after multiple attempts, got all 4 kids to stand together semi-politely for a moment to snap their picture...

before starting on another Wallaby sweater when the baker's helper asked every so shyly how long it would take for me knit him a sweater and taking it on the plane..

to fly back to Michigan this morning while Dad is having some more testing done this week...
