Knitting and the New Year

We were sitting around last night talking about knitting.  I can't remember what Meredith was talking about, but she was wearing the just off the needles cowl I made for her.
We decided to try the scarf that Meredith had just finished on Ollie.  Cute, huh?

Then we thought it would be fun to try the scarf on Sinon.  
Ollie looks unimpressed.
It was so much fun having her around this week.  

She and Melissa met me at Fellini's for martinis that afternoon too.  As much as I miss the girls being little, this age has its perks too.  Dirty martinis are just one example!
I brought my knitting, of course.
An early morning photo of Ollie.  I miss her too.

I spent some time on the last day of this year in the laundromat washing all of our quilts, blankets, and mattress covers.  I also washed our floors, dusted, and even cleaned the air filter.  I didn't plan to do heavy cleaning, but I'm glad I did, even though my muscles are aching tonight. 

So I will start the new year with a clean house and a clean slate, even if it wasn't my intention.  And I will get up tomorrow to take my first photograph of the year.  See you then.

And a Happy New Year to you and your family!
