Happy New Year

Happy 2021 from snowy northern Illinois! I want to wish you the best for the year ahead. We all need a great year and I hope that this one is it. I’m sending positive and happy thoughts out into the universe.

Today we are enjoying a beautiful snowfall. Our first real snow had happened during the week, but it was at night, so we couldn’t enjoy the beauty. This one is all day long and I am loving it. It’s cozy and warm inside.

I just blocked Penny’s cardigan, and since I finished it in our dim living room while watching a movie, I was a little surprised when I started flattening it out for blocking. Do you see what I see? The yarn pooled in an unattractive way on the front. I am disappointed, but I decided to block it before chucking it. Maybe I can use it to my advantage with different colored embroidery, although I am not betting on this; it’s really strange looking. I’ve already picked out another color of yarn.

This week has been a relaxing time between Christmas and New Year’s. Chrimbo Limbo is what I recently heard it being called. Have you ever heard it called that?

I put together a short video of what I’ve been up to this week, Chrimbo limbo. Hint, lots of baking and cooking and not much working.

I wish you all a great 2021. May it be as ‘back to normal’ as it possibly can. Hugs to you.🤗
